ADVANCED Motion Controls introduces the FE060-25-EM – FlexPro™ Digital Servo Drive
Electromate Inc. Posted 05/15/2019
Available immediately, the FE060-25-EM is the first servo drive of the new FlexPro™ digital drive family from ADVANCED Motion Controls (AMC). Designed with compact form and power density in mind, the micro-sized FE060-25-EM can outperform larger-sized digital servo drives and still be integrated into tight spaces.
At just 1.5 x 1 x 0.6 inches (38 x 25 x 16 mm) in size, the footprint of the drive is approximately the same as two standard postage stamps. In other words, four of these drives can fit on a standard business card. Even with its small size, the FE060-25-EM can supply brushed, brushless, stepper, and linear servo motors with up to 25 amps continuous current and 50 amps peak current.
- 1.5 x 1 x 0.6 inches (38 x 25 x 16 mm) in size
- 10-55 VDC supply voltage
- 25A continuous current
- 50A peak current
- Highest power density servo drive from ADVANCED Motion Controls to date
- EtherCAT Communication
- Incremental encoder and BISS C-mode feedback
- Torque, velocity, and position operating modes
- Configuration and full loop tuning
- IMPACT™ architecture
A developer version is available for proof-of-concept and testing purposes - part number FD060-25-EM. It comes with an FE060-25-EM soldered to a larger board that is equipped with various connectors for simplified interfacing.
Projected Industries & Applications:
The small size of the FE060-25-EM makes it perfect for cobots (collaborative robots), AGVs, portable devices, lab and warehouse automation, military equipment, and any other integrated design.
FlexPro™ is AMC’s newest family of digital servo drives. With cutting edge engineering, FlexPro™ is meant to expand the capabilities of AMC’s already powerful and diverse product selection. The IMPACT™ architecture allows FlexPro™ servo drives to maintain the intelligence and power of larger-sized servo drives while fitting into much more compact packages. The FE060-25-EM is the first drive in the series with many more to come.
IMPACT™ (Integrated Motion Platform And Control Technology) is the architecture that makes AMC’s FlexPro™ drives possible. The stacking of circuit boards with creative selection and placement of high-power components allows for much higher power density than previously produced servo drives. The expanded processing capabilities ensure the drive’s intelligence is unmatched. IMPACT™ makes its debut with the FE060-25-EM. This technology will be used in subsequent FlexPro™ drives as well as any future custom products where it is desired.
