Applied Motion Products Announces Motors

WATSONVILLE, CA | Applied Motion Products reports the introduction of three models of StepSERVO Integrated Motors said to provide cost-effective and high-speed motion control for high throughput applications such as packaging and labeling, automated test and measurement, and automated assembly. With encoder feedback and advanced control loops that incorporate servo control, the motors reportedly provide a motion control system that operates faster, cooler, and quieter than competitive technology. 

Using closed-loop feedback and advanced control technology, the motors create more torque for higher acceleration in meeting faster machine cycles, resulting in greater productivity, company says, and motors automatically 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.

“Our StepSERVO Integrated Motors combine a high-resolution incremental encoder and closed-loop servo firmware to create peak torques up to 50% higher than open-loop step motors, as well as cooler and quieter operation,” says Eric Rice, marketing director, Applied Motion Products. “As motor power consumption is often an issue for faster machines, our StepSERVO Integrated Motors consume less power to reduce operating costs.”

The company offers three models of StepSERVO Integrated Motors that support step and direction, streaming commands, fieldbus communications, and stored Q programming for stand-alone operations.

  • TSM Integrated Motors feature 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 Integrated Motors feature three digital inputs, one digital output, and one analog input and support Ethernet, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP communications.
  • TXM Series Integrated Motors combine the features of the TSM Series with IP65 rated environmental capabilities and M12 connectors for operating in wet and dusty environments.
