Class 5 SmartMotor

Class 5 SmartMotor

Animatics' Class 5 SmartMotor has an optional feature of patent-pending Combitronic technology. Combitronic technology allows any SmartMotor to read from, write to and control any other SmartMotor for dependability and no data collision or loss. More than 100 SmartMotor servos can be linked over CAN to create one multi-axis controller. One program can be written in one motor to control all SmartMotor servos, or each motor can have its own program for sharing resources and for a multi-tasking, multi-processing system.

Without the Combitronic option, Class 5 SmartMotor communication speeds go up to 115.2kBaud in both the RS-232 and RS-485 ports. Isolated 24V I/O has been added, program execution speeds have been increased and Gearing, Camming and Contouring functions have been added.
