Providing advanced motion performance and extensive functionality to suit a broad range of precision motion applications, Applied Motion Products' (AMP) new SV200 series intelligent servo drives are now available from Mclennan. The compact servo drives include a direct-on-line power supply for convenient stand-alone operation 220VAC nominal (single- or three-phase). Continuous current ratings from 3A and 4.5A and a 300% peak current capability combine with cutting-edge features such as programmable notch filters, an anti-vibration algorithm and auto-tuning to enable smooth motion and fast settling times over a wide dynamic range. Designed to suit servo motors with power ratings from 100W to 750W, such as AMP’s J series which include 2500 line encoders, the new digital drives include multiple communication and control options that will allow machine builders maximum application flexibility.

With all models featuring a USB port for set-up and tuning users can choose RS232, RS485, CANopen or Ethernet communication ports whilst a broad choice of control options covers pulse and direction, analogue torque or velocity, streaming commands, stored program execution, CANopen and EtherNet/IP.

A generous on-board configurable I/O complement includes eight regular and four high-speed digital inputs at 5-24 VDC that can be used for over-travel switches, coordinated event handling and fast positon capture in motion synchronisation applications such as packaging machines, process controls or dispensing equipment. Six digital outputs at 30VDC maximum and two +/- 10V analogue inputs balance the SV200’s machine interfacing capability to offer users the ability to handshake and interact with PLCs or other automation controllers or even provide complete machine control for single-axis applications.

The high level ‘Q’ programming language option for the SV200 provides complete multi-tasked motion and machine control with conditional processing, maths functions and high speed position registration, for instance in complex move sequencing and electronic gearbox applications.

AMP’s SVX Servo Suite software provides a central programming and application configuration environment for all SV200 series intelligent drives and is available free of charge for use across the AMP range of servo and stepper drives, allowing motor technologies to be freely mixed in applications for added flexibility and reduced motion component costs.

The SV200 range also features comprehensive fault protection and the compact panel-mount drive includes a combination of front panel screw terminal and D-type connectors for fast and uncomplicated installation. A front-mounted control panel and 5-digit LED display provides parameter setting / reading, error and operational status information, says the company.
