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.

Harmonic Drive Introduces New Lightweight Versions of Select Gearhead Products.

Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces new lightweight versions of select gearhead products. The new gearheads are ideal for designs where weight is a critical factor. Building on the success of Harmonic Drive LLCs current gear units, new lightweight versions were the next logical evolution of the CS/ SH product lines. With weight reductions of 20-30% without any reduction in torque ratings, the Lightweight (LW) gear units provide exceptional torque density.
