Pulse Geared Drive-Ai (PGD-Ai)

The Pulse Geared Drive-Ai is used to solve many of today's toughest motion control challenges. They are compact and powerful low voltage motor drives used in material handling and motion control applications around the world.

Our Pulse Geared Drive Ai (PGD-Ai) coupled with ConveyLinx-Ai is a proven, cost-effective motion package for repeatable motion in machines and conveyors. It's designed for repeatable linear motion applications that require Senergy's awesome power, efficiency and reliability in an extremely compact form. Imagine the form factor of a high voltage AC Motor/Gearbox combination in a much more compact low voltage version.

The PGD-Ai is the first drive of its kind using a reliable and proven M8 connector, which connects to an external control. The hall-effect signals are digitally coded inside the motor by a micro-controller, which makes it possible to communicate precision motor control through only one pin to an external controller. The micro-Controller also digitally codes through the same pin the motor temperature, run-time, gearbox information, serial number, and other information. The external control uses and analyzes all this data for multiple functions such as over-temperature control, over current, motor health, and motor positioning.

Our PGD-Ai is often implemented in conveyor systems such as transfers, lifts, pop up wheel diverters, turntables and many other motion control applications where precision servo-like performance is required. With our fully integrated programmable control package, easily accomplish near-servo performance at a fraction of the cost of a servo motor.
With a super-compact design and its heat-treated reinforced planetary gearbox, the PGD-Ai design works in harsh and demanding applications. For convenience, the same engine is used for both our motor drive rollers (MDR) and our PGD-Ai, allowing you to take advantage of the same control architecture you're employing for your MDR.

Using PGD-Ai in place of a traditional motor will significantly reduce your cost, and maintenance issues would virtually vanish. Coupled with ConveyLinx-Ai, you can easily replace pneumatic actuators or solenoids and produce repeatable linear motion with precision.

Let our team of knowledgeable engineers show you why so many leading conveyor and material handling manufacturers globally have come to rely on PULSEROLLER .

    Powerful & Precise

    Pulse Geared Drive-Ai (PGD-Ai) comes with Senergy’s awesome power, precision, efficiency, and reliability in a compact form factor ready to drive the equipment in your applications.  The internal CPU provides many benefits such as serial number, fault information, feedback and positioning, gearbox information, temperature, and much more.

    Compact & Safe

    Coming in at the size of a dollar bill, the power originating from this motor gear box combination will surprise you. Effortlessly move hundreds of pounds with a single drive or couple them together to move even more weight. Your operators are much safer working with our PGDs, than with higher voltage motors, yet the power output is perfect for many of your applications. 

    Versatile & Cost-Effective Alternative

    Pulse Geared Drive is a perfect alternative to your standard AC motors, steppers and even the expensive servo motors. With over a hundred thousand PGDs installed around the world driving a wide range of applications from conveyor to robotics it’s clear why customers choose this drive. Once coupled with an intelligent controller like ConveyLinx the precision of the PGD provides an alternative solution to the expensive Servo and Stepper applications at a fraction of the costs. If repeatable linear motion is your goal, our PGD might just be the solution.
