ADVANCED Motion Controls Introduces 45 Amp Continuous FlexPro Servo Drives

New to the ADVANCED Motion Controls® FlexPro® digital servo drive family are the FE060-45C-CM and the FE060-45C-EM. The two micro-sized drives are each capable of outputting 45 amps continuous current and support CANopen and EtherCAT communication respectively. This is nearly double the continuous current rating of previous FlexPro® models of the same size.
 
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.
 
Also available are the developer board versions, the FD060-45C-CM and FD060-45C-EM, with large connectors for research, development, and prototyping purposes.
 

Features

  • 38.1mm x 25.4mm footprint, 11.5 mm tall (1.50 x 1.00 x 0.45 in) for the FE060-45C-CM

  • 38.1mm x 25.4mm footprint, 16.0 mm tall (1.50 x 1.00 x 0.61 in) for the FE060-45C-EM

  • 10-55 VDC input

  • 45 A continuous

  • 45 A peak

  • Incremental encoder, EnDat 2.2, and BISS C-mode feedback

  • Torque, velocity, and position operating modes

  • CANopen and EtherCAT variants available, inquire for Ethernet/IP

  • Configuration and full loop tuning

  • STO (Safe Torque Off)

  • IMPACT™ architecture


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 new 45 amp continuous models ensure that sufficient power can be provided to motors even when the available space is limited.


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 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.
