Animatics introduces the world’s most powerful integrated servo: the Class 5 SmartMotor featuring patent-pending Combitronic technology. In 1994, Animatics introduced the first fully integrated SmartMotor servos featuring an internal brushless motor, encoder, controller and amplifier, and have been improving and perfecting the technology ever since. Building upon nearly 15 years of innovation and advancement, the new Class 5 SmartMotor shatters every precedent set by the previous generation SmartMotor servos.
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 highest 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 one giant multi-tasking, multi-processing system. Even without the Combitronic option, Class 5 SmartMotor communication speeds blaze at up to 115.2kBaud in both the RS-232 and RS-485 ports. Isolated, 24V I/O has been added, program execution speeds are vastly increased and the industries most advanced Gearing, Camming and Contouring functions have been added.
