µZ’s are the smallest off-the-shelf servo drives from ADVANCED Motion Controls.  Pronounced ‘Micro-Z’ these plug-in drives are designed for embedded applications in a wide range of industries including: Robotics, Lab Automation, Homeland Security/Military, Electric Mobility, Medical and Packaging.

AMC µZ Servo Drive

AMC µZ Servo Drive

AMC’s µZ servo drive family now features velocity mode capability.  With the addition of 3 models with built-in interface cards and 3 more with plug-in style mounting, these full featured drives are available for immediate shipment.

µZ servo drives are designed to drive brushless and brushed DC motors at a high switching frequency.  To increase system reliability and to reduce cabling costs, the drives are designed for direct integration into your PCB and weigh in at less than 9 grams.

Designed without the need for a heatsink, the µZ’s are true featherweights with a high power to weight ratio. The µZ’s are fully protected against over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, over-heating, and short-circuits. Depending on the model, the drives interface with digital controllers that have analog ±10V or PWM/Direction commands.  These servo drives require only a single unregulated isolated DC power supply, and are fully RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.

The DVC series motor controllers from Advanced Motion Controls are digital four-quadrant servo drives purpose-designed and built to operate today’s modern mobile electric vehicular platforms.  Providing high power from battery supplies, the DVC series features a compact design, IP65 construction and multiple operating modes for controlling either permanent magnet brushed or brushless motors.  Whether for traction / propulsion, steering, lifting or any other electrically driven actuation, the DVC series is the newest member in a long line of successful motor controlling solutions from Advanced Motion Controls.

The ability to maximize battery life and extend vehicle operations, essentially running ‘lean and mean’, is the key to keeping a vehicle operating at peak performance.  With unmatched power density, high efficiency, low weight, cool thermal operation and regen all built in, selecting the DVC series is the obvious choice.

The DVC Series motor controllers operate in torque, velocity, or position mode and provide high power from battery supplies with multiple operating modes for either 3Φ (servo, closed loop vector, or closed loop stepper) or 1Φ motors.  The DVC Series communicate over CANopen and are configured with AMC’s DriveWare® 7 configuration software.

Specific applications include: mobile robots, AGV’s, UGV’s, material handling and transport vehicles in both industrial and military environments.

Camarillo, CA-   ADVANCED Motion Controls announce the release of a full family of high performance EtherCAT Servo Drives.  Models are available with AC (single or three phase) or DC inputs, from 7.5amp continuous (15A pk) to 50amp continuous (100A pk).

ADVANCED Motion Controls provides products for the fastest, most flexible form of industrial Ethernet control – EtherCAT®.  High speed, deterministic control with standard 100 base-T hardware, EtherCAT is industry proven to achieve blazing fast, consistent results in demanding applications.

Extending the popular DigiFlex® Performance™ product line AMC’s EtherCAT communication servo drives provide for multiple feedback devices in a variety of power platforms.  ADVANCED Motion Controls EtherCAT products consist of panel mount and plug-in servo drives to allow for quick prototyping and ease of system integration.  Panel mount DPE drives serve as nodes in single or multi-axis EtherCAT networks, while plug-in DZE/DZS drives utilize AMC’s unique, proprietary high speed multi-axis communication interface and I/O expansion capabilities (‘DxM’™ and ‘DxI/O’™ Technologies).  Now a single EtherCAT node can accommodate a combination of up to 4 axes of motion with 32 digital inputs, 32 digital outputs, 4 analog inputs, and 2 analog outputs each.  The result is a highly integrated high value motion control solution for single or multi-axis applications.  Key features include:

EtherCAT® Network Drives

  • CoE (CANopen over EtherCAT) device profile based on drives and motion control device profile, DSP-402
  • Programmable PDOs allow up to 16 receive and 16 transmit messages per drive per EtherCAT cycle.
  • Watchdog monitor disables the drive when communication is lost.
  • Cycle times down to 100 µs with jitter under 1 µs.
  • Auxiliary USB interface for commissioning and diagnostics.
  • Compatible feedback types: 5V TTL Encoder, 1Vpp Sin/Cos, Heidenhain or EnDat absolute encoders

‘DxM’™ Technology

  • Allows control of up to 4 axes of servo motion from a single node on the EtherCAT network
  • One DZEANTU (node) and up to three DZSANTU (sub-nodes) provide a low-cost multi-axis EtherCAT solution

‘DxI/O’™ Technology

  • Low-cost network I/O expansion solution
  • Up to 70 additional digital and analog I/O points per axis – 280 additional I/O points in a ‘DxM’ configuration
  • All of the expanded I/O accessible via PDOs on the EtherCAT network
