Introducing SVAC3 Digital Servo Drives

Nov

by Jeff Kordik

Applied Motion Products is pleased to announce the availability of the SVAC3 family of digital servo drives.

The SVAC3 is a servo controller in a compact and cost effective package. This AC powered drive is loaded with features and options that make it a great choice for many OEM applications. SVAC3 drives can be controlled via analog signal or step and direction inputs. Alternatively, they can be programmed to act as stand-alone units with the power of Q Programmer™.

All models include Ethernet communication which simplifies connection to the supplied Windows PC software for configuration and tuning, and allows applications to communicate in real time using the SCL and Q languages over standard 100Mbit Ethernet cabling, addressing and protocols.

The EtherNet/IP model supports industry-standard network communications.

The SVAC3 also provides an upgrade path for users who want to migrate from step motors to servo motors without a large cost increase. Paired with a V series servo motor the SVAC3 servo drive offers great value.

Three drive models are available, each in 120VAC and 220VAC versions. The 120V versions provide up to 3.5 A rms continuous current and 7.5 A rms peak. The 220V versions provide up to 1.8 A rms continuous and 5.4 A rms peak.
