Introducing the New Class 6 Industrial Ethernet SmartMotors in Both Standard and High Pole Count Versions
Press release date: Aug 01, 2014
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)
