Servo drives reduce BOM costs

Metronix has added a low cost option to its range of intelligent servomotor drives.

The ARS 21xx/23xx SE are said to offer motion control system builders a platform to boost the performance of machines and automation while substantially decreasing costs. According to Metronix, the drives offer a peak current capability that is up to twice that of similar drives on the market, allowing faster acceleration. A choice of six single or three-phase continuous output power ratings is available, from 0.5 to 6kVA (with peak output powers from 1 to 12kVA). The new drives also feature a universal encoder interfacing capability that allows connection to resolvers, analogue/digital incremental encoders, and single/multi-turn absolute encoders such as HIPERFACE or EnDat.
