If you missed Applied Motion at ATX Philadelphia this past October 7-8 you can still catch a glimpse of the action. A video recap of the show is available here. Also, stay tuned for our booth number at ATX West. This show is held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, February 9-11, 2016. More details can be found at atxwest.designnews.com.
Highlights of the ATX Philly show included the StepSERVO™ closed loop integrated stepper motors and the SV200 digital servo drives. StepSERVO integrated motors provide higher acceleration rates, more torque, better efficiency, cooler operation and quieter operation than traditional step motor systems. These benefits offer great advantages to the designer looking to incorporate higher performance motors in their system. The TSM11 StepSERVO motor, the newest member of the family, was also presented and is a good choice for applications requiring minimal torque and a very small footprint.
The SV200 digital servo drives offer new performance features like auto-tuning and an anti-vibration function, along with well-established features from Applied Motion such as Q programming for on-board motion control along with various communication options. Paired with J Series Servo Motors, the new SV200 drives make a very competitive option for machine builders.
