fast servo motorAnimatics introduced its Class 5 SmartMotor integrated servo. With the optional feature of patent-pending Combitronic technology, more than 100 SmartMotor servos can be linked over CAN to create what the programmer experiences as one giant multi-axis controller. Combitronic allows any SmartMotor to read from, write to, and control any other SmartMotor to ensure the dependability and no data collision or loss. One program can be written in one motor to control ALL, or each motor can have its own program, sharing resources with every other, for a desirable multi-tasking, multi-processing system. Without the Combitronic option, Class 5 SmartMotor communication speeds reach up to 115.2kBaud in both the RS-232 and RS-485 ports. Isolated, 24-V I/O has been added, program execution speeds are vastly increased and advanced gearing, camming and contouring functions have been added.
