Servo Motor Controllers and Drives

Digital Servo Drives provide precision motion control.

RS232/485 digital drives work with brushed or brushless, rotary or linear servomotors. Its 20 kHz digital current loop uses Space Vector Modulation switching resulting in higher current loop bandwidth and lower heat dissipation. Sinusoidal, encoder based, commutation of brushless motors results in low torque or force ripple, making them suitable for high-precision motion control applications....

Remote Pitch Control permits on-the-fly tuning.

Z-control option, available on RG rolling-ring linear drive assemblies, enables rapid adjustments to actuator pitch while system is in operation, without changing drive-motor rotational speed. Z-control knob turns worm gear, affixed to pitch control mechanism, to permit virtually infinite, fine tuning. RG linear-motion assemblies feature auto reverse, zero backlash, and up to 800 lb of axial...

Servo Motor Controllers and Drives

Motor Control eliminates servo dithering.

SilverMax(TM) controller has anti-hunt mode that keeps servo motor from dithering after it reaches its target position. Anti-hunt mode can also be maintained at low speeds as long as position errors are low. System is suitable for applications such as positioning microscope, antenna or camera, or when smooth control is required while stopped or at low speeds.
