Omron's Smartstep Servo Motor And Drive Can Be Quickly Installed And Configured

SCHAUMBURG, IL (March 18, 2002)-Users are able to get the new Omron Smartstep servo motor and drive up and running quickly and easily by simply plugging it in and setting the rotary and DIP switches on the front panel. The Smartstep's autotune function makes motor tuning nearly effortless. Its installation is also made simple and quick with pre-fabricated cables to connect the Smartstep to Omron position control modules. The Smartstep's single phase power input allows for flexibility since installation doesn't require the more tedious and less available three phase power. The Smartstep assists in troubleshooting and maintenance. If it has a technical problem, the Smartstep will display an alarm number that indicates what caused the fault.

The Smartstep provides a low cost, high function servo solution. Its pulse command input allows seamless upgrades from existing stepper systems. The Smartstep provides greater reliability than steppers with continuous feedback loops, so users can be assured of quick and accurate movements. It features constant torque through its entire speed range, which means more power is available whether it is moving fast or slow. In addition, its available momentary torque is three times its continuous torque, which prevents slipping from high, instantaneous loading.

The Smartstep is ideal for industries like packaging, semiconductor, materials handling and assembly. Sample position and speed control applications that the Smartstep can be used in include conveying, electronic gearing, labeling, pick and place, indexing and winding.

To provide savings cost, the Smartstep does not feature non-essential functions. Omron's economical Smartstep motors and drives start at $960 and are available from stock.
