Conditions for Vibration Motor Operation

Vibration motors can only be put into operation under the following conditions:

The vibration motors were securely attached on a mechanically, stable surface acc.

The mechanical safety devices were mounted properly. Do not touch the vibration motors during operation.

The electrical connections were installed securely.

Allow motors to cool down after switch-off, risk of burning. The tight fit of the screws has to be checked regularly during operation, for the first time after an operating time of approx. 24 hours.

When commissioning the motor, the power consumption and the housing temperature have to be monitored. lf the motor current exceeds the value specified on the type plate, or if the housing temperature exceeds a value of 90℃ after a warm-up time of 30 minutes, it is likely that there is a disharmony in the dynamic system of the vibration unit due to which the vibration motor is unable to reach its rated speed. The electric driving power and the set centrifugal force of the vibration motor, as well as the vibration behavior of the vibration unit have to be synchronized. The vibration behavior of the vibration unit is mainly determined by its spring damping system and its mass. By means of suitable constructional measures, the resonance behavior of the overall system has to be designed in such a way that the drive can reach its rated speed. lf necessary, the set centrifugal force of the vibration motor has to be decreased.

lf these measures are unsuccessful, the manufacturer will be happy to provide support with the handling of such issues. Interventions in the motor which are not described in this manual are prohibited.

The protective covers provided by the manufacturer serve the protection against touching the rotating centrifugal weights during the operation of the vibration motor. In general, it is forbidden to operate the vibration motor without special protective devices against the touching of rotating parts. lf it is necessary to operate the vibration motor without protective covers for plant-specific reasons, the user has to take suitable constructional measures which achieve a protective effect similar to the covers.
