Wheel drive system for automated guided vehicles (AGVs) - size XL

eWheel XL

Our eWheel size XL is our large motor for maximum power and high vehicle speeds for your AGV application.

The drive system motor is IP54 rated and is a dynamic internal rotor with 4 pole pairs.

It also contains a 1024 increment encoder and Hall sensors.

This means that our eWheel has a redundant encoder system and, by balancing both signals, appropriate electronics can reliably detect the speed (SLS and SDI).

Furthermore, our eWheel XL is also extremely overload capable with a low moment of inertia.

Wheel covering

Our standard wheel covering is made of Vulkollan® with a hardness of 92° Shore A, but other wheel coverings made of Vulkollan® 70° Shore A or other crowns are also conceivable and possible. Vulkollan® is a polyurethane traded by the company Covestro AG. Other materials and Shore hardnesses that have proven themselves in intralogistics are also possible.

Please contact us and we will check your requirements for the wheel covering.

Mounting flange

We offer the options with our eWheel that you can mount it either from the outside or from the inside of the vehicle itself. This type of mounting is always given and is part of our standard programme.

You make the selection of the mounting direction, whether you want to screw on the eWheel from the outside or from the inside. Based on this, we then select the corresponding mounting flange in production.

In addition, we can also provide a mounting flange for the eWheel.

In addition to our eWheel, we can also offer you a standardised mounting bracket to conveniently attach our eWheel under your vehicle chassis. This is how you can simply screw the AGV on above our eWheel.

Drive controller

Our dual-axis controller has STO (Safe Torque Off) according to PL e and can therefore be a component of your functional safety concept for your AGV. The controller is voltage-resistant up to 60V with a peak current of 60A. Our standard interface of the double-axis controller is CANopen. You therefore need one dual-axis controller per AGV for two eWheel.

Functional safety

During normal operation, the eWheel's BLDC motor brakes generatively, feeding energy back into the battery or to other consumers. For safety-oriented emergency braking, the eWheel has a mechanical holding brake with emergency stop function.

The gearbox amplifies the braking torque accordingly so that the vehicle comes to a safe standstill even in unfavourable operating situations. We can adapt the nominal braking torque to your application. For functional safety on the electronic side, the eWheel offers

the eWheel offers the following possibilities:
