Servo System promotes stability in position-critical jobs.

To address instability issues inherent in high-speed precision motion system applications, XtraDrive-DL (dual loop) senses and compensates for load position inaccuracies caused by repetitive motion, temperature variances, and component wear. It also compensates for instabilities caused by backlash and reduces tracking error to ±1 micron. System consists of integrated amplifier/1.5 axis...
