Advanced Motion Controls Release µZ Servo Drives

µZ’s are the smallest off-the-shelf servo drives from ADVANCED Motion Controls

Camarillo, CA- Weighing only 8.5 grams and capable of outputting 10A peak and 5A continuous µZ's are the smallest off-the-shelf servo drives from ADVANCED Motion Controls. Pronounced ‘Micro-Z' these plug-in drives are designed for embedded applications in a wide range of industries including: Robotics, Lab Automation, Homeland Security/Military, Electric Mobility, Medical and Packaging.


These full featured drives operate with brushless and brushed servo motors and are available for immediate shipment.

µZ Servo Drives are Current Mode drives that measure 1.5" on a side and output 10A peak and 5A continuous at up to 36VDC.

Designed without the need for a heatsink, the µZ's are true featherweights with a high power to weight ratio. The µZ's are fully protected against over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, over-heating, and short-circuits.

Depending on the model, the drives interface with digital controllers that have analog ±10 V or PWM/Direction commands. These servo drives require only a single unregulated isolated DC power supply, and are fully RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.

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.
