Advanced motion performance

Applied Motion Products Inc. (AMP) has announced the SV200 series intelligent servo drives. The drives are said to provide advanced motion performance and functionality to suit a range of precision motion applications.

The SV200 servo drives include a direct-on-line power supply for stand-alone operation 220Vac nominal. Continuous current ratings from 3.0 and 4.5A and a 300% peak current capability combine with features such as programmable notch filters, an anti-vibration algorithm and auto-tuning to enable smooth motion and fast settling times over a wide dynamic range.

Designed to suit servo motors with power ratings from 100 to 750W, such as AMP’s J series which include 2500 line encoders, the new digital drives include multiple communication and control options that will allow machine builders maximum application flexibility.

The device’s I/O complement includes eight regular and four high-speed digital inputs at 5 to 24Vdc that can be used for over-travel switches, coordinated event handling and fast position capture in motion synchronisation applications such as packaging machines, process controls or dispensing equipment.Six digital outputs at 30Vdc maximum and two ±10V analogue inputs balance the SV200’s machine interfacing capability to offer users the ability to interact with PLCs or other automation controllers or provide complete machine control for single-axis applications.
