    Parker R16 RIPPED ironcore linear motors, with their patented anti-cog technology, produce the large forces needed for many industrial applications – without the roughness associated with traditional ironcore linear motors. With continuous forces ranging from 743 N (167 lbf) up to 2230 N (501 lbf) and peak forces ranging from 2478 N (557 lbf) up to 7433 N (1671 lbf), the RIPPED family is well suited for a broad range of extremely demanding applications. Parker offers modular magnet tracks for unrestricted travel length. The RIPPED motor connector modules allow quick and easy installation while reducing overall maintenance costs. Ultra-high-flex cables come standard. Virtually cog-free operation combined with powerful ironcore technology make the RIPPED family of motors a superior choice for affordable high-force, ultrasmooth motion.

    Features and Benefits:
    • Ideal for high force applications
    • Patented ultra-smooth anticog technology
    • Connector modules allow quick and easy installation
    • Internal thermal cutout switch protects coil
    • Digital HEDs, home and +/- limit sensors incorporated into connector module
    • Modular magnet tracks with flush mounted magnet separators
    • Built-in cable strain relief
    • Two lengths of modular magnet tracks allow unlimited length of travel

    Ironcore motors consist of a forcer which rides over a single magnet track. The forcer is made of copper windings wrapped around iron laminations. The back iron provides an efficient path for the magnetic flux to circulate between the motor and the magnet rail. In addition, there is an efficient path for heat to escape the motor. This ironcore design allows for extremely high forces and efficient cooling. In fact, the ironcore design offers the highest force available per unit volume. Finally, the ironcore design is economically attractive because only one row of magnet material is required.

    Parker has developed a patented anti-cog technology that virtually eliminates cogging and allows ironcore motors to be used in applications where only ironless motors were considered before. This offers the machine builder a powerful combination of extremely high force and smooth operation in an economical package.
