Applied Motion Products launches TSM, SSM and TXM series of StepSERVO integrated motors
September 17, 2018 By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
September 17, 2018 – Motion control products provider Applied Motion Products has launched three new models of its StepSERVO integrated motors, which provide high-speed motion control for high-throughput applications such as packaging and labeling, automated test and measurement, and automated assembly.
Using closed-loop feedback and advanced control technology, StepSERVO creates more torque for higher acceleration in meeting faster machine cycles that result in greater productivity. The StepSERVO motors operate cooler and more quietly than standard motors by drawing just enough current to control the load. They also reduce current to the motor when the load is not demanding torque, and provide reductions of 10 dB in noise due to less current in the motor windings.
The three motors support step and direction, streaming commands, fieldbus communications and stored Q programming for standalone operations:
• TSM Series features eight digital inputs, four digital outputs and one analog input, and support RS-232, RS-485, CANopen, Ethernet, EtherNet/IP and Modbus communications. Motors are available in various frame sizes, including a new NEMA 34.
• SSM Series features three digital inputs, one digital output and one analog input, and support Ethernet, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP communications.
• TXM Series combines the features of the TSM Series with IP65-rated environmental capabilities and M12 connectors for operating in wet and dusty environments.
