and the
single most significant advancement

in the Integrated Servo Industry since its
inception.





What is ?

1) Fast, easy communication over CAN

2)
Up to 120 axes working together

3) Instantaneous setup

4) Elimination of master

easy, modular package

Class 5 makes SmartMotors
Smarter

1)

Expanded Math Capabilities

-

Floating point, trig functions, and more

2)

8 user
-
defined interrupts


-
Change parameters on the fly

3)

DE/Dt Error limit rate of change


-
Protect the user, protect the equipment.

4)

Up to 17 programmable I/O channels per motor

An entire automation system
in the palm of your hand

Class 5 Is

Up to 6 axes, with mimicing on any axis


Full I/O control


Cutter compensation



NEMA 34 ServoStep



Encoder Resolution of 4096
Counts



Capable of Micro
-
Stepping



the
ServoStep is not confined to the ‘full
-
step’ resolution of the stepper motor


Full 4096 Positional Resolution is
achieved via PID Control


It’s commutated



uses less power
causing it to run cooler and save you
money


Many typical steppers can only
achieve 200 steps/revolution and
don’t have PID feedback



ServoStep Advantages





Uses all of the same great
features as the Class 5
products





Programming Language

Optional 24 VDC
expanded I/O and CAN bus
available



Low Speed and High Torque
allows for the elimination of
gearheads
