ProMotion servo products include high-performance dc servomotors offering continuous torque ratings from 28 to 640 oz-inches. Both ferrite and neodymium magnet models are available in eight different frame sizes and a variety of stack lengths. Catalog provides product specifications and describes how to select or tailor a motor to suit application requirements. For each product, charts illustrate characteristics. Performance curves, tachometer specifications, and features are provided for each model.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
