JVL, a manufacturer of servo and stepper motors, has added to its ServoStep product line. A directly mountable motor for driving spindles is now available that replaces hand wheels in format change applications.

The ServoStep product line has everything built-in including motor, encoder, drive electronics, control electronics with ePLC and optional Ethernet or CAN bus integrated into one compact unit. All major industrial Ethernet protocols like Profinet, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, SERCOS, ModbusTCP/UDP and Powerlink are available.

The features of the product include:

  • Double Ball Bearings enabling up to 7100 N axial load
  • Closed-loop control
  • Energy-efficient due to automatic current control
  • Built-in ePLC with 8 DIO, 24V or 0-5V (12bit) analog input with advanced filtering
  • Ultra-high resolution: 409600 step/revolution
  • Speed-resolution down to ±0.01 RPM
  • Change speed or torque or other parameters “on-the-fly” (while driving)
  • Optional: CANopen protocol with DS 301 and DSP 401 support
  • Optional: STO (safe torque off, SIL3)

The company can also deliver the following versions:

  • Rolled ball screw up to three metres
  • Captive version up to 127 millimetres travel length
  • Motor without screw, for mounting of own screws

The following features are available on request:

  • Custom screw end machining
  • Higher IP protection (for motor only)
