What's the Difference Between a Servo Motor and Motion Controller?

In the automation world, there can be a fine line between what is considered a motion controller and what represents a basic servo drive. It is critical to understand the functionality and intelligence of each device.

Robots on the Set

Intelligent robotic cameras that automate live transmission are used on stages, racetracks, and playing fields, operate autonomously - and provide a perfect TV experience.

Slotless Brushless Servo Motors Improve Machine Performance.

From the outside it looks just like any other industrial brushless servo motor but inside it utilized advanced manufacturing techniques to provide higher torque, higher speed, smoother operation, higher efficiency, and better inertial matching in a smaller package.

maxon motor - Formulae Handbook for Design Engineers

The extensive collection with illustrations and descriptions includes formulas, terminology and explanations of the calculations that are relevant for drive systems. A flow chart provides assistance in selecting the right drive for each purpose.

Understanding Torque Ripple in Servo Motors

Torque ripple must be defined as a function of output load and speed. For load specification the most sensible rating point is the continuous duty thermal torque rating for the servo motor.

Development of Battery-Free Multi-Rotation Absolute Encoder

In recent years, there have been many demands for equipment with high productivity to have a system that retains positioning information, even after the main power supply is turned off.
