MILPITAS, Calif., 2 Sept. 2014. Moog Animatics in Milpitas, Calif., is introducing the Class 6 SmartMotors for rugged and industrial motor control applications.

The Class 6 SmartMotors have a powerful processor that operates at nearly twice the processor speed of Class 5. The PID rate is fixed at 62.5 microseconds with 64K user program memory and large Cam point memory space for cam tables of more than 3K points.

These SmartMotors are able to support standard industrial Ethernet protocols including: EtherCAT and PROFINET. Able to support standard and high pole count commutation, these products deliver closed-loop PID control. Class 6 also has a dedicated high current brake output control.

Key features include dual-port Ethernet; USB interface for programming, configuration and live diagnostics; RS-485 half duplex communications port; Modbus remote terminal unit (RTU) slave (RS-485); and floating-point math and trigonometric functions with 32-bit precision results.

Other features include dual trajectory generators enabling relative and absolute position moves or velocity moves on top of gearing or camming; advanced gearing, allowing preset traverse and take-up winding parameters, including dwells and wrap counts; advanced camming including cubic spline interpolation and dynamic frequency and amplitude changes; virtual-axis mastering into camming through gearing which enables stand-alone; and multi-axis coordinated motion.

On board local I/O includes drive enable input; fault output; travel limit inputs; differential encoder bus to 500 kilohertz count rate; 4 general use inputs; 1 high speed input; and 1 high current output (may be used for external brake).
