Servo2Go - CANopen Input Sinusoidal Brushless Servo Amplifiers establish a new benchmark in versatility
CANopen digital servo drives are designed to drive brushed and brushless servomotors in torque, velocity, or position mode and employs Space Vector Modulation (SVM), which results in higher bus voltage utilization and reduced heat dissipation compared to traditional PWM drives.
