Servo Module Adds DeviceNet

Feb. 3, 2009
A new module for the vendor’s MAC50-141 and MAC800 series of integrated servo motors enables the MAC motors to be used on DeviceNet.
The AC-servo motor, encoder, amplifier, positional controller and DeviceNet are all built into the motor. The only connections required are a supply voltage and the DeviceNet cables. The device type is a “Position controller,” which is a standard method for controlling position when motion control is used on DeviceNet. A double-supply facility is available so that position and parameters are maintained intact, for example, during an emergency stop. Via DeviceNet it is possible to access all of the MAC motor’s registers. The module is supplied with M12 connectors (IP67) (MAC00-FD4) with watertight connection for use in industrial environments.JVL Internationalwww.jvlusa.com513.877.3134
