Ketterer motor drives consist of a 24 V DC motor and a worm gear. The motor drives the entire system. The worm gear is needed to convert the torque and speed of the motor according to your requirements.
In combination with a spindle, linear motion is generated from the rotating motion of the DC motor. The movement is limited to the length of the spindle. The spindle can be connected in two ways. If the spindle is connected as a through-going spindle, the motor drive moves freely on the spindle axis. If the spindle is permanently attached, the motor drive is rigidly installed in the system.
Thanks to their compact design and smooth operation, Ketterer motor drives can be used universally. They can be found at many well-known office furniture manufacturers for the electrical height adjustment of tables and work surfaces. But motor drives are also used in the modern home and in the care sector whenever something needs to be moved. Screens and smart TVs can be extended from cabinets and stowed away again. Backrests and upholstered elements of seating furniture are moved into the desired position with Ketterer motor drives. Sinks and toilets can be infinitely adjusted to the desired height – a particularly special convenience for people with limited mobility.
Together with a Ketterer controller, motor drives can be used to put together complete drive systems that meet the most individual requirements. Do you have a new application in mind? Ketterer’s strong development team can implement your ideas together with you.
