Autonomous positioning

Taking the integrated motor/drive concept a stage further, SIG Positec has launched the IclA, a product it describes as an integrated closed-loop drive.

The IclA features a maintenance free brushless DC motor coupled with a closed-loop integrated power stage with CAN bus communications. Position values are set via the bus, and the inbuilt encoder and controller give autonomous positioning.

IclA is available with four different gearboxes with nominal speeds from 30 to 220rev/min, and nominal torques from 3.5Nm to 12Nm.
