Experience the Advantage of Consolidating 4 Drivers into 1 Unit

Oriental Motor is pleased to announce the release of our new DC input AZ Series Multi-Axis Drivers with built-in EtherCAT communications based on the closed loop, absolute type AZ Series driver.

The AZ Series Multi-Axis Drivers with EtherCAT is a space saving, DC input, multi-axes controller and driver designed for applications demanding 2 or more axis of control and integrating EtherCAT communications from an upper lever controller.

These new drivers are available in 2 axes, 3 axes or 4 axes configuration. It is compatible with all of our DC input AZ Series family of products, including DC input stepper motors, linear and rotary actuators. The advantages of consolidating up to 4 drivers into 1 unit includes space saving benefits, reduced cost and simplified wiring.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
