ADVANCED Motion Controls Release New Micro-Sized FlexPro® Servo Drive, Model FM060-60C-CM

MC Advanced Motion Controls Releases New Micro Sized Flex Pro Servo Drive 1 400

June 13, 2022

 

ADVANCED Motion Controls has released a new 60A continuous FlexPro servo drive model FM060-60C-CM. This model is the second “machine embedded” version in this power range adding CANopen communication to the previously released EtherCAT version.

The 60A continuous current rating means the servo drive can operate at the 60A peak rating continuously with no need for current foldback. This feat is impressive because the new model is in the same package size as our “micro-sized” FlexPro models meaning up to four units can fit within the footprint of a business card.

The wide operating voltage of 10-55VDC combined with the ultra-compact form factor make this servo drive ideally suited for battery powered applications that require high power in a compact form. For example, mobile robotics and portable devices are a perfect fit for this design.

The CAN interface for the FM060-60C-CM servo drive follows the CiA DS301 communications profile and the CiA DS402 device profile (device profile for drives and motion control). The fully featured command set allows for distributed control with complete access to all critical drive functions and parameters.

The FM060-60C-CM is packaged in the Machine Embedded Form Factor that allows for direct connections with power and signal wires.  This form factor makes it easy to install servo drives just about anywhere in a machine.

Features:

  • •CANopen communication
  • •10-55 VDC input voltage
  • •Rated for 60A continuous current
  • •BiSS C and Incremental Encoder feedback
  • •Torque, velocity, and position operating modes
  • •Configuration and full loop tuning
  • •STO (Safe Torque Off)

 

Projected Industries & Applications:

The small size of the FlexPro® drives makes them perfect for cobots (collaborative robots), AMRs, AGVs, portable devices, lab and warehouse automation, military equipment, and any other integrated design.

 

Features:

  • •EtherCAT, CANopen, RS485/RS232 communication available
  • •10-55 VDC input voltage
  • •Rated for 60A continuous current
  • •Incremental encoder, EnDat 2.2, and BISS C-mode feedback
  • •Torque, velocity, and position operating modes
  • •Configuration and full loop tuning
  • •STO (Safe Torque Off)
  • •IMPACT™ architecture

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
