Optimag E -Electronically Switchable Permanent Magnets

Fast, easy lifting, handling and placing of ferrous loads

  • Failsafe operation - lose power load is still retained
  • Energy efficient - power only required for on/off switching NOT required during lift
  • On/off switching takes less than 0.2 seconds
  • Can be controlled by push button, PLC or robot/computer interface
  • Modular system - one or multiple units can be controlled from a single controller
  • In built safety circuit - will not operate until fully magnetised
  • Operating voltage 240V ac
  • IP rating - IP55

Overview - Optimag E -Electronically Switchable Permanent Magnets

Electronically switchable permanent magnet (ESPM)

Optimag E is ideal for clamping or lifting loads of >0.40" (10mm) thickness with smooth, flat surfaces. Available in circular or rectangular configurations, Optimag E is typically used in robotics, pick and place, transfer machinery or manipulator applications. The ESPM lifter incorporates permanent magnetic technology. An electric current is only required to switch it on or off.

Once energized or de-energized it will not change until it receives another signal, hence if the power source fails the load will still be held securely. In addition, a built-in safety circuit prevents the unit being used until it is fully magnetized.
