Easily setup for Allen-Bradley PLC
13 February 2019
Following the successful introduction of the complete range of ServoStep integrated motors, JVL is now releasing Add-On-Instructions for fast and easy setup and programming in Rockwell Automation’s Studio 5000 software.
The integrated design with the controller in the motor minimises the size of the control cabinet. With less components in the cabinet, the cooling requirements will be lower, reducing both system cost and running costs.
JVL's ServoStep motors offer performance that, says the company, in some applications can rival servo motors at a lower cost. The high torque at low speeds make compact solutions without gear possible.
The ServoStep family offers up to double power in same size compared to similar motors, due to higher current/voltage and advanced regulation.
JVL’s closed-loop ServoStep technology eliminates loss of steps and never stalls. The technology causes a paradigm shift that changes your perception of what you can do with a stepper motor. Ultra-high torque enables direct drive without gearing.
The motor series also has current control, which lowers power consumption and allows 100% duty cycle without overheating. The ultra-high step resolution of 409,600 step/rev decreases acoustic noise and results in a smooth running motor.
The wide speed range from 0 to 3000 rpm can be adjusted in increments of 0.01 rpm.
Due to automatic tuning, programming is fast and easy.
The motors have 8 programmable inputs/outputs: each can be set up as digital input, digital output or analog input. Motors are equipped with EtherNet/IP interface and as option you can choose STO (Safe Torque Off) versions.
The motors are perfect for multi-axis applications and format adjustments where high positioning speed is required. Due to ultra-high torque, no gear is needed.
For end-of-line packaging and food and beverage applications enclosure class IP65 can be delivered.
To fulfil the demands for diagnostics and easy maintenance in factories of the future the motors are designed for IIoT and are Industry 4.0 ready.
The motors include a 2-port Ethernet switch to reduce wiring in daisy-chain configuration (DLR). Several LEDs enable technicians and operators to get a quick status overview.
To save time, Add-On-Instructions are available for Studio 5000. It makes commissioning fast and easy and the motors can be set up in 5 minutes or less.
