Customized servo drives at your fingertips: Servo drives a la carte.

When off-the-shelf is not enough. Tailored design using pre-tested modules and templates with proven technology. Define your own servo control in a few clicks. Connect to any motor. Build it with no restrictions.

April 25, 2012 Ingenia Motion Control is pleased to announce the update of the online tool for servo control customization, 'Servo drives a la carte'. The web tool is aimed to help customers to define their motion control solution in a simple and user friendly environment, with no limits on size, geometry, or power among others.


Ingenia uses a modular design approach based on pre-tested circuits and templates, which helps to short development time, eliminates the risk of unproven technology and guarantees an outstanding product quality.

The tool includes an online library with design blocks grouped depending on their functionality. The library is updated frequently with new modules and options. Some of the available are:

• Different Core controls
• Power stages
• Motor types
• Feedback
• Connectors
• Input/ Outputs
• Communication
• Protections

Ingenia proprietary Motor Control ICs are the core of Servo Drives a la Carte and include proven algorithms to provide high-performance motion control to meet any customer requirement.
OEMs struggling to meet a particular need with off-the-shelf products, will find Servo Drive a la carte a valuable option, avoiding to adjust their systems to utilize features being offered with a standard servo drive.

Benefits at a glance:

• Build with blocks or pre-defined templates
• Online tool with state-of-art components
• Best in class time to market
• Low production batches
• Manufacturing outputs delivered
• Full support during product life cycle

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
