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
  • Available for both cabinet and decentralized system architectures


Drive-Integrated Servo Motor (DI2020)

New integrated servo drive with on-board power electronics for decentralized machine architectures and IP65/67 requirements.

  • The decentralized solution allows a reduction in the number of connections and of potential failures
  • Sensitive cost savings due to reduced wiring (no feedback cabling)
  • The decentralized architecture saves up to 90% of cabinet space
  • High resolution and high sampling rate of its control loops provide high accuracy and fast execution of movements
