Space-saving multi-axis servo drive for low-power applications

26 May 2022

Trio Motion Technology has launched a multi-axis servo drive to provide precision motion coordination for space critical, lower power machines up to 750W.

The DX5 servo drive is designed to be cost-effective for machine builders who need multi-axis EtherCAT performance control, and a zero-stacking gap and compact dimensions enable a small footprint.

The multi-axis servo drive is aimed at applications of between two and 16 axes. The multi-axis drive is also intended for packaging machines with lower power requirements, including form fill seal, and labelling applications.

Multi-axis synchronisation includes EtherCAT control performance down to 250µs, with 350% overload for pulse duty cycles. The DX5 multi-axis servo drive also supports 20-bit single turn or 23-bit multi-turn absolute encoders enables high speed and precision control with optimised multi-axis coordination across the machine.

The compact servo drive is designed as a space-saving dual axis module in 750W and 400W frame sizes. It promises high energy efficiencies, providing savings for end users across the lifetime of the machine as a result of the integrated DC Bus regenerative energy system. The DC link absorbs motor braking energy, reusing it across the machine’s axes. This system reduces cost for the machine user and contributes to their environmental commitment.

Cost saving is also achieved by removing I/O from individual drive axes with functionality integrated instead into the motion coordinator which achieves one of the lowest cost-per-axis counts between two and eight axes up to a 750W requirement, or up to 16 axes at 400W.
