......................Introducing a new observatory roof motor system...........................
SkyDrive uses the latest stepper motor technology with plenty of power to open and close light to very heavy roll off roofs.
These new motors with gear reduction units will deliver high torque and extremely smooth ramp-up and deceleration speeds. SkyDrive Motor Systems will be offered in two motor torque outputs:
> Standard SkyDrive (300 in lbs torque)
Roofs up to 250 sq ft or 3,000 lbs
> Heavy Duty SkyDrive (600 in lbs torque)
Roofs greater than 250 sq ft or up to 6,000 lbs
Motors & gear reducers are standard Nema 34 frames (3.4" x 3.4" x 8-10" long).
This is a complete Roof Motor System which will include the new SkyDrive Software & Hardware. SkyDrive will incorporate a new version of SkyRoof for roof operation, which will be indentical to the old SkyRoof Application, except for its ability to control our new line of Hybrid Stepper/ Servo Motors.
The system power requirements will be universal to accommodate world-wide applications: 110vac or 220vac at 50 - 60hz
