ADVANCED Motion Controls Releases 60Amp Micro-Sized FlexPro Servo Drives

DCS AMC Micro sized Servo Drive 1 400

November 23, 2021

 

ADVANCED Motion Controls has released 7 new micro-sized FlexPro servo drives rated to output 60A continuous. The 60A continuous current rating is 33% higher than previous models for the same size making these our highest power-density servo drives to date. This offering includes PCB Mount, Machine Embedded and Development Board form factors.

 

PCB Mount Form Factor

With a footprint of 38.1mm x 25.4mm, up to 4 FlexPro servo drives can fit within the area of a standard business card. The PCB Mount form factor is our most compact configuration with no connectors or housing. They’re intended to be soldered directly to a PCB to help achieve the highest levels of integration.

Machine Embedded Form Factor

These models add a compact interface card to the PCB Mount versions to allow for direct connections with power and signal wires.  This form factor makes it easy to install servo drives just about anywhere in a machine.

 

Development Board Form Factor

Essentially the same as the other models in this product launch but mounted to a larger board populated with full-sized connectors with more spacing in between.  Development boards are great for proof-of-concept designs and for setting up experiments on a bench top.

 

Features:

  • EtherCAT, CANopen, RS485/RS232 communication available
  • 10-55 VDC input voltage
  • Rated for 60A continuous current
  • Incremental encoder, EnDat 2.2, and BISS C-mode feedback
  • Torque, velocity, and position operating modes
  • Configuration and full loop tuning
  • STO (Safe Torque Off)
  • IMPACT™ architecture

 

Projected Industries & Applications:

The small size of the FlexPro® drives makes them perfect for cobots (collaborative robots), AMRs, AGVs, portable devices, lab and warehouse automation, military equipment, and any other integrated design.

 

About IMPACT™

IMPACT™ (Integrated Motion Platform and Control Technology) is the architecture that makes AMC’s FlexPro® drives possible. The stacking of circuit boards with creative selection and placement of high-power components allows for much higher power density than previously produced servo drives. The expanded processing capabilities ensure the drive’s intelligence is unmatched. IMPACT™ made its debut with FlexPro®. This technology will be used in subsequent FlexPro® drives as well as any future custom products where it is desired.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
