Servo motor equipped with SIL3 encoder

June 2019 Motion Control & Drives

The new MS2N synchronous servo motor is Tectra Automations’ latest product offering to the electric drives and controls industry. The range combines high dynamics, compact dimensions and excellent energy efficiency, with more torque, higher speeds, a practical single-cable connection and extensive options for the highest servo performance.

Over 50 motor types are available in six motor sizes, five motor lengths, and more than 20 fully configurable options, covering maximum torque up to 360 Nm and maximum rotational speeds up to 9000 rpm. They are 30% smaller than their predecessors with rotor inertia optimised for maximum dynamics and adaption to motor masses.

The product line comes equipped with a quick locking mechanism which is simple, practical and reduces installation time. It also includes a certified SIL3 encoder to allow maximum safety levels for all safety functions. This includes safe absolute end position, which replaces the hardware limit switch by software, 31 configurable safe cam areas, reduced commissioning due to semi-automatic support and PC-free device replacement when servicing. The motor has a maximum torque error range of 5%, which compares well with the standard.

Applications in which this product may be utilised include force and pressure control in robotics and production machines and condition monitoring, like detection of production faults or bad parts.
