Compact servo system

04 November 2014

Panasonic has introduced the MINAS range of compact servo systems which have been featured in a new 16-page catalogue.  

The MINAS servo motors and drives are available for powers up to 1.5kW suiting 230V 1-phase supply.

 The drives offers upgraded control functionality and communications, while the motors are said to offer a 20% increase in speed range with high precision encoder feedback.

The high dynamic performance of the servo system has been achieved by a response frequency in the drives of 2 kHz plus real-time auto-tuning,  Safe Torque Off is offered to the standard\
There are options for EtherCAT communications that allow fort he creation of simple and low-cost networks. Also available are models for analogue and pulse/direction input.  A positioner variant can store up to 60 moves that can be incremental or absolute.  Upgraded Panaterm software for parameter setting, monitoring, diagnostics and fine tuning is available free of charge

The MINAS servo motors come in five sizes from 50W to 1.5kW. From 200W upwards they can be fitted with planetary gearheads. With low inertias, these motors can deliver 300% rated torque at speeds of up to 6000 rev/min. To increase positional accuracy the motors now have an incremental encoder with a remarkable 1.04 million pulses per revolution. The compact motor design comes with protection to IP67.

Panasonic MINAS servo motors and drives are available in the UK through Techdrives.  The new 16 page catalogue includes all the options such as motion controllers, filters and cables. It can be dowloaded from the website:
