Geo Brick, the newest addition to the Geo Drive family of programmable servo amplifiers, continues to expand Delta Tau's strategy for combining the power of Turbo PMAC2 motion controllers with its Geo servo drives in one compact, easy-to-use package. These servo drives deliver a highly integrated motion/drive solution to fit a wide range of machine automation applications. With the inclusion of PLC programming features for logic control, CNC, gantries and even robotics and kinematics, the embedded Turbo PMAC2 motion controller within the Geo Brick can be programmed for virtually any type of motion control application. The Geo Brick is available in 4-, 6- and 8-axis packages, simplifying installation and wiring and reducing panel space requirements.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
