The SMTBD1 digital servo amplifier with CAN Bus communication is for systems where the drive is to be more fully integrated into the control system. The SMTBD1 features a compact design, and CAN Bus provides data security. Parameters can be modified on-the-fly, and with CAN Bus, the system can send commands and data over the network to each individual drive and interrogate them for any errors that may have occurred.
