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.


All gearhead units are precision ground planetary gear sets capable of sustained servo input speed. They can be ordered by themselves, or pre-mounted to the SmartMotor™ prior to shipment. Moog Animatics provides three series of gearheads: High Performance (P), OEM Series (SP), Right Angle (RAP). Each gearhead is shipped with appropriate mounting hardware, fasteners, Allen key and pinion gap gauge.
