Head-Plate-Drive model A

HPD-A drive tower for Applikon motor 25 mm nose design 

Head-Plate-Drive (HPD) as used by CellVessel SUB and BactoVessel SUF use coupling / tower kits for the Applikon servo motor mounting standard used by Applikon®, DasGip®, Broadley-James® and others. This concept benefits from mechanical support as to the old fashion motor. The small and most common ID25-A format is shown here.

One Applikon coupling standard exist which is used by:

  • Applikon® with their own servo motor P100 weight 1,6 kilo (P310 is much too heavy for SUBs smaller than OD200)
  • DasGip® with Maxon® servo motor (high efficient modern compact design)
  • Broadley James with SEM and other servo motors

The re-usable tower kit manufactured from POM plastics to be slightly forced onto the CellVessel OD 137 x 255 3.2 litre SUB OD30 mm centre bearing on the head plate. CellVessel SUB mounted with the P100 Applikon servo motor in a solid mounting HPD ID25-A setup.

Applikon servo motors are found with 3 nose diameters: 20, 25 and 40 mm.
