Advanced Motion Controls Releases the FM060-25-CM Micro-Sized High-Power Servo Drive

February 8, 2021

The FM060-25-CM is part of a new breed of micro-sized, high-power servo drives, immediately available from ADVANCED Motion Controls. Rated to output 25A continuous and 50A peak, this fully featured digital servo drive is small enough to fit in the tightest locations.  It is ideally suited for mobile and portable applications such as mobile robotics, automated mobile robots (AMRs), AGVs, material handling, warehouse automation, lab automation and more.

The mounting footprint of the FM060-25-CM is 50.8mm x 25.4mm with a height of 22.1mm making it possible for up to 3 units to fit within the footprint of a standard business card.  The FM060-25-CM uses CANopen for network communication.  Along with this model are two lower current options, the FM060-10-CM rated to 10A continuous and FM060-5-EM rated to 5A continuous, designed to the same dimensions.

Features include:

  • 8 x 25.4 x 22 mm (2 x 1 x 0.87 in)
  • 10-55 VDC input
  • 25 A continuous, 50 A peak for FE060-25-CM
  • 10 A continuous, 20 A peak for FE060-10-CM
  • 5 A continuous, 10 A peak for FE060-5-CM
  • Incremental encoder and BISS C-mode feedback
  • Torque, velocity, and position operating modes

The FM060-25-CM can be configured to work with any servo motor because the control loops for Current, Velocity and Position can be individually tuned to match the application’s motor, load inertia, supply voltage and motion requirements. 

Once configured for the system, the FM060-25-CM can be controlled over a CANopen network using PVT commands or profile motion commands. It can also be commanded using analog signals, indexes & sequences, step & direction, and encoder following.  Despite its small size, no feature or capability has been spared when compared with full-sized counterparts.

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.
