Animatics has taken a look at just how much control functionality can be built into an integrated motor design, and come up with the SmartMotor – a high performance brushless DC servomotor which integrated a controller, amplifier, encoder, PLC and a network manager.
The Nema 17 motor not only meets complex servo motion requirements, it also provides a direct bolt and shaft replacement for 17 size stepper motors.
Up to 120 SmartMotors can be linked to create a multi axis system using one serial port. There are three additional ports to connect limit and home sensors or switches.
