Compumotor has developed a direct drive rotary servo system that's the most compact in the company's Dynaserv line. Each consists of a brushless servo motor with 10-ft of motor and encoder cables, microprocessor-based drive, power supply, and an incremental encoder. Offered in both 4-inch and 6-inch diameter versions, they are available in speeds up to 2.5 rps and resolutions up to 655,360 positions per revolution. Axial and radial runout measures 10 mm--10 times better than the Dynaserv DR and DM series--with 5 mm available. Applications include scanning, semiconductor processing, disk drive assembly, rotary indexing, industrial robots, and low-speed inspection. Parker Hannifin, Compumotor Division, Product Code 4173.
