Introducing the New Class 6 Industrial Ethernet SmartMotors in Both Standard and High Pole Count Versions
Press release date: August 1, 2014
These new Class 6 SmartMotors have a new powerful processor that operates at nearly twice the processor speed of Class 5. The PID rate is fixed at 62.5useconds with 64K User program memory (twice that of prior SmartMotors) and larger Cam point memory space for cam tables to >3K points.
These SmartMotors are able to support Standard Industrial Ethernet protocols including: EtherCATand PROFINET. Able to support both standard and high pole count commutation, these products deliver fully closed-loop PID control. Class 6 also features a dedicated high current brake output control.
Dual Port Ethernet (no Ethernet switches or hubs required)
USB interface for programming, configuration and live diagnostics
RS-485 Half Duplex communications port
Modbus Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) Slave (RS-485)
Full floating-point math and trigonometric functions with 32-bit precision results
Dual trajectory generators enabling relative and absolute position moves or velocity moves on top of gearing or camming
Advanced gearing, allowing preset traverse and take-up winding parameters, including dwells and wrap counts
Advanced camming including cubic spline interpolation and dynamic frequency and amplitude changes
Virtual-axis mastering into camming through gearing which enables stand-alone; multi-axis coordinated motion
Programmable and non-programmable protection features (both hardware and software)
On Board local I/O including:
Drive Enable Input
Travel Limit inputs
Differential Encoder bus up to 500k Hz count rate
4 General Use inputs
1 High Speed Input
1 High current output (may be used for external brake)
