Control Techniques servo products deliver high performance combined with maximum flexibility. The drives can connect to a wide range of motion controllers through I/O or dedicated communication networks such as SERCOS and EtherCAT. Alternatively, these drives can use their integrated motion controller to take control of the automation system.
To optimize performance, Control Techniques servo drives and servo motors are segmented by the duty required for the application.
- Pulse Duty – High dynamic applications requiring hard accelerations and decelerations. Examples include pick-and-place, flying shear and other cut-to-length machines. These applications are characterized by high peak (e.g. 300% overload) and moderate RMS torque.
- Continuous Duty – High precision over an extended duration requiring lower acceleration and deceleration rates. Examples include printing and winding and labelling. These applications are characterized by moderate peak and high RMS torque.
