Closed Loop Integrated Motors for High-Acceleration Applications

Nov. 20, 2019
StepSERVO closed loop integrated motors from Applied Motion Products control position, velocity and torque for higher acceleration rates and faster machine cycles in food & beverage applications.

Combining a high-torque step motor with an on-board drive, encoder, controller and closed-loop servo software into a single package, the integrated motors save on space, wiring, and cost over conventional systems comprised of separate motor and drive components. Using encoder feedback, they automatically reduce current to the motor when torque is no longer demanded by the load, allowing them to consume less power than a traditional step motor system. They also operate cooler and more quietly than open loop step motors by drawing just enough current to control the load. The ability to execute stored programs created with the company’s Q Programming language enables users to apply complicated logic and motion sequences to solve motion control challenges. Motors are also available in IP65 rated versions for wet and dusty environments, and with industrial network communications including CANopen, EtherNet/IP, Modbus RTU and TCP, as well as support for third-party PLCs and HMIs.
