Measure Motor Shafts Precisely

May 7, 2008
The resolver-based Model 941 PositionServo Drive measures the position of the motor shaft within a revolution, says the vendor, while an incremental encoder can only know the relative position of the shaft.
For applications requiring tight positioning control, the PositionServo has an integrated resolver with a scalable emulated encoder output. The output scales the resolution back into the customer’s controller, providing fifteen options of positioning resolution. Users can also choose their own level of control with the drive’s capability of controlling basic torque and velocity applications up through fully programmable coordinated motion.Lenze-AC Tech www.lenze-actech.com508.278.9100
