Advanced Motion Controls announces DZE & DZS servo drives

ADVANCED Motion Controls releases DZE & DZS series of servo drives for EtherCAT enabled control networks. These products not only provide precise motion but also at reduced cost when applied in a multiple networked axes system.

November 13, 2011 - ADVANCED Motion Controls releases DZE & DZS series of servo drives for EtherCAT enabled control networks. These products not only provide precise motion but also at reduced cost when applied in a multiple networked axes system.


ADVANCED Motion Controls has also created DxM - Demultiplexed Motion technology allowing connectivity of up to 3 DZS drives (sub-nodes) to a single DZE (node) on an EtherCAT network for up to 4 axes of servo motion. Removing the cost of additional EtherCAT nodes greatly reduces overall system cost. 'DxM' technology handles all sub-node activity easily through one node, making master tasks much simpler in multi-axis systems.

Also introduced are new DPE series of EtherCAT enabled servo drives as part of the panel mount DigiFlex Performance platform. Both DPE's and DZE's can be used as stand-alone EtherCAT slave nodes in single-axis setups or as part of a larger, multiple axes EtherCAT network. The DZS's must be used as sub-nodes in a 'DxM' configuration with a DZE node.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
