AMD5x G2 Multi-Axis Servo System

The EtherCAT®-based AMD5x G2 Series is a multi-axis servo system that delivers high efficiency and performance motion control for rotary and linear motors. The bussed system architecture significantly reduces the complexity of multi-axis control implementation to simplify the installation process. The system simply attaches the required number of drives at various output current ratings to the central Passive Infeed Unit (PIU). The robust AMD5x Passive In-feed Unit generates a shared DC-Link that supplies multiple servo drives and communicates across an EtherCAT® fieldbus. Multiple cabinet mounting options are available for optimal thermal management. Detailed drive configuration and turning parameters can be customized easily for unique applications designed to optimise system performance.

  • Product Details
    The AMD5x Series consists of drive models with continuous current ratings of 3A, 6A, 12A, 20A or 35A, and a 15KW central PIU with direct connection to 380-480VAC 3 phase input. The drive’s large encoder bandwidth and ultra-low current sensing noise enhance its excellent operating characteristics. The build-in high-speed probe inputs, high-speed I/O,  galvanic isolated motor temperature sensor input and brake control simplify the system integration. The PIU provides power to all bussed drives by converting 3 phase mains to a filtered DC supply and also has the ability to diagnose various system faults.
