Industrial Servo Drives Overview

Servo Drives provide fully digital control over position, velocity or torque for synchronous, asynchronous, linear or torque  servo motors. Moog specializes in high performance Servo Drives with a wide selection of power sizes  that are flexible to work with a variety of machine designs.  Some key features include:

  • Highest dynamics and reliability
  • Thermal management for operation in demanding industrial environments
  • Characteristics matched to optimize the performance of Moog Servo Motors

Single-Axis Servo Drives

Programmable Single-Axis Servo Drive

High performance, programmable servo drive platform

  • Programmable with comprehensive IEC 61131 motion control software package and control loops functionality using MathWorks C /C++
  • High update rates, operating at cycle times of 62.5 µs for curent and 125 µs for velocity and position control loops
  • 8 sizes based on output current rating from 4 up to 450 Arms  and 3 compact size versions based on output current rating  from 2 up to 8 Arms

Note: This can also be used as a module in the Programmable Multi-Axis Servo Drive (MSD)
