ADVANCED Motion Controls introduces the FE060-25-EM – FlexPro™ Digital Servo Drive

Designed with compact form and power density in mind, the micro-sized FE060-25-EM can outperform larger-sized digital servo drives and still be integrated into tight spaces.

Available immediately, the FE060-25-EM is the first servo drive of the new FlexPro™ digital drive family from ADVANCED Motion Controls (AMC). Designed with compact form and power density in mind, the micro-sized FE060-25-EM can outperform larger-sized digital servo drives and still be integrated into tight spaces.


At just 1.5 x 1 x 0.6 inches (38 x 25 x 16 mm) in size, the footprint of the drive is approximately the same as two standard postage stamps. In other words, four of these drives can fit on a standard business card. Even with its small size, the FE060-25-EM can supply brushed, brushless, stepper, and linear servo motors with up to 25 amps continuous current and 50 amps peak current.

Features include:

• 1.5 x 1 x 0.6 inches (38 x 25 x 16 mm) in size
• 10-55 VDC supply voltage
• 25A continuous current
• 50A peak current
• Highest power density servo drive from ADVANCED Motion Controls to date
• EtherCAT Communication
• Incremental encoder and BISS C-mode feedback
• Torque, velocity, and position operating modes
• Configuration and full loop tuning
• IMPACT™ architecture



A developer version is available for proof-of-concept and testing purposes - part number FD060-25-EM. It comes with an FE060-25-EM soldered to a larger board that is equipped with various connectors for simplified interfacing.

Projected Industries & Applications:
The small size of the FE060-25-EM makes it perfect for cobots (collaborative robots), AGVs, portable devices, lab and warehouse automation, military equipment, and any other integrated design.

About FlexPro™
FlexPro™ is AMC's newest family of digital servo drives. With cutting edge engineering, FlexPro™ is meant to expand the capabilities of AMC's already powerful and diverse product selection. The IMPACT™ architecture allows FlexPro™ servo drives to maintain the intelligence and power of larger-sized servo drives while fitting into much more compact packages. The FE060-25-EM is the first drive in the series with many more to come.

About IMPACT™
IMPACT™ (Integrated Motion Platform And Control Technology) is the architecture that makes AMC's FlexPro™ drives possible. The stacking of circuit boards with creative selection and placement of high-power components allows for much higher power density than previously produced servo drives. The expanded processing capabilities ensure the drive's intelligence is unmatched. IMPACT™ makes its debut with the FE060-25-EM. This technology will be used in subsequent FlexPro™ drives as well as any future custom products where it is desired.

About ADVANCED Motion Controls
ADVANCED Motion Controls, a U.S. company in business for over 31 years, was founded with the idea of designing and manufacturing lower cost / higher power density servo drives. The company's focus remains to create and deliver the best motion control drives for brushed or brushless servo motors. With approximately 3 million servo axes shipped, ADVANCED Motion Controls has become one of the fastest growing servo drive companies in the world.

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.
