Gearheads | SmartMotor | Class 6 | SmartMotor
SmartMotor™ is a highly programmable, integrated servo motor system that is integrated with a motor, an encoder, an amplifier, a controller, RS-232/RS-485 communication, and IOs. The Class 5 SmartMotor offers dual trajectory path generators and Velocity Mode and Electronic Gearing summed together. It now features optional combitronic technology, which is a parallel-processing system. The Class 5 SmartMotor is now available with CDS7 Option, power, CAN bus and RS-232 through 7W2 (for SM23165 series motors). D-style connectors have a primary RS-232 comm port and M-style connectors have a primary RS-485 comm port and 11 channels general purpose 24V ISOL I/On.
Class 6 SmartMotor
The Class 6 SmartMotor features onboard controls that allow for distributed controls across the machine. Simplified wiring reduces cost through the onboard dual-port Ethernet switch. Fieldbus communication through EtherCAT®, PROFINET® or EtherNet/IP™ and supports Combitronic™, the parallel-processing system, over EtherNet/IP™. Easily access SmartMotor programmable autonomous control features in slave mode, which allows special user-programmed functions. Optionally communicate with the motor through the RS-485 half-duplex port, which provides access as a Modbus Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) Slave.
