AMK announces iX Decentralized Servo Drives

AMK announces iX Decentralized Servo Drives. The iX series includes servo controllers with high-voltage intermediate circuits in a range from 2 kVA to 5 kVA and comes with an excellent level of protection and vibration resistance.

AMK announces iX Decentralized Servo Drives. The iX series includes servo controllers with high-voltage intermediate circuits in a range from 2 kVA to 5 kVA and comes with an excellent level of protection and vibration resistance. In the iDT series, the servo controller is directly installed on the motor. These extremely compact servo controllers are ideal for modular machines. Installation on the motor substantially reduces the space needed in the central control cabinet as well as wiring. Real-time Ethernet communication takes place via the Sercos automation bus.


Instead of using a specially made hybrid cable, AMK uses a separate power supply and fast communication via real-time Ethernet. Multifunctional I/Os in each servo controller are available for sensors and actuators in the machine. The AMK system does not require an expensive distributor box so that additional field bus components can be looped in at any time and any place in the machine. This makes it ideal for use in linear axes or on a carrousel.

ABOUT SERCOS
Sercos is one of the world's leading digital interfaces for communication between controls, drives, and decentralized peripheral devices. Sercos has been used in machine engineering for more than 25 years and is implemented in over 500,000 applications with around 3 million real time nodes. With this latest generation, Sercos can be used as a universal automation bus for machine production and system implementation.

ST Robotics - r12 robot arm

ST Robotics have decades of experience in industrial robots having sold hundreds of robots over the years. The company has 3 main models, R12, R17 and R19 all using a unique simple industrial technology that dramatically reduces costs resulting in the lowest priced industrial robots available. The same uncomplicated technology vastly improves reliability. ST backs this up with a 2 year warranty. Typical applications are routine testing, sample handling and also education. The software is a different paradigm from most robots. It is command based; you type a command and see immediate action. Programming is a building block approach, building confidence as you program in small 'mind-sized bytes'. ST offers free unlimited technical support.
