Applied Motion Products Space-saving integrated servo motor
The MDX integrated servo motors provide design modularity and simplicity for a range of applications. The servo motors house control electronics at the back, near the feedback device. No other external electronics package is required to drive or control the motor. The back of the motor also contains connectors for power, communications and I/O. The onboard controllers use the same command interfaces as external motor controllers, including CANopen, RS-485, Modbus and Ethernet connections as well as discrete I/O interfaces such as pulse and direction. Command signals from a robot or machine’s central processing unit can be wired directly to the integrated servo motor.
