  • (1888PressRelease) January 09, 2020 - Combining a high-torque step motor with an onboard drive, encoder, controller and closed-loop servo software into a single package, StepSERVO™ Closed-Loop Integrated Motors save on space, wiring, and cost over conventional systems comprised of separate motor and drive components.
    Using encoder feedback, closed-loop step motor systems automatically reduce current to the motor when torque is no longer demanded by the load to consume less power than a traditional step motor system. StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors also operate cooler and more quietly than open-loop step motors by drawing just enough current to control the load.

    The ability to execute stored programs created with Applied Motion’s Q Programming language enables users to apply complicated logic and motion sequences to solve motion control challenges. For example, in a positioning application in a paper converting plant, operators can use multiple digital inputs on the integrated motor to select from a recipe of target positions stored in the motor’s non-volatile memory. The digital inputs are multiplexed to further increase the number of available recipe positions, which are automatically selected per job by the master controller of the converting line.

    Applied Motion offers its StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors in IP65 rated versions for wet and dusty environments. Units are available with industrial network communications including EtherNet/IP, Modbus and CANopen, as well as support for third-party PLCs and HMIs.
