ADVANCED Motion Controls Introduces Extended Environment FlexPro Digital Servo Drives

ADVANCED Motion Controls® has just added three PCB mount servo drives with CANopen® communication and Extended Environment capabilities to the FlexPro® drive family. Now available are the FXE060-5-CM (5 amps continuous, 10 amps peak), the FXE060-10-CM (10 amps continuous, 20 amps peak), and the FXE060-25-CM (25 amps continuous, 50 amps peak).
 
Designed with compact form and power density in mind, the micro-sized FlexPro® drives can outperform larger-sized digital servo drives and still be integrated into tight spaces. In addition, conformal coating, copper pins, and reinforced architecture allow these drives to operate in more extreme environmental conditions.

Projected industries & applications

The small size of the FlexPro® drives makes them perfect for cobots (collaborative robots), AGVs, portable devices, lab and warehouse automation, military equipment, and any other integrated design. The Extended Environment versions further expand their utility into harsh environments like the scorching desert, the open ocean, the edges of space, and the battlefield.


About FlexPro®

FlexPro® is AMC’s newest family of digital servo drives. With cutting edge engineering, FlexPro® is meant to expand the capabilities of AMC’s already powerful and diverse product selection. The IMPACT™ architecture allows FlexPro® servo drives to maintain the intelligence and power of larger-sized servo drives while fitting into much more compact packages.


About Extended Environment

Since 2008, ADVANCED Motion Controls® has offered a selection of off-the-shelf Extended Environment servo drives designed to withstand extreme temperatures, high and low pressures, shocks, vibrations, humidity, dust, dirt, and contamination. AMC has also developed and produced custom and modified servo drives that exceed the power and/or environmental limits or our off-the-shelf Extended Environment products.


About IMPACT™

IMPACT™ (Integrated Motion Platform And Control Technology) is the architecture that makes AMC’s FlexPro® drives possible. The stacking of circuit boards with creative selection and placement of high-power components allows for much higher power density than previously produced servo drives. The expanded processing capabilities ensure the drive’s intelligence is unmatched. IMPACT™ made its debut with FlexPro®. This technology will be used in subsequent FlexPro® drives as well as any future custom products where it is desired.
