PRESS RELEASE: February 10, 2014.
Birkerød, Denmark --JVL presents a new AC Servo Motor with built-in controller, Nano-PLC and direct AC mains supply with same capacity and length as traditional servo motors.
JVL, the European leader in the development of integrated servo and stepper motor technology, has now again developed a new and unique product in the field of integrated motor control.
JVL’s newest additions to their portfolio is a complete, high-capacity MAC motor® with rating of 1500W. The first prototype has been revealed at the German SPS/IPC/Drives 2011 exhibition in November and in 2013 the official launch took place.
New Compact Motor
The MAC motor® sets completely new standards for the performance and size of servo controls. With a length of only 250mm for a 1500W motor with a torque of 4.78/14.3Nm at 3000rpm, this MAC motor matches the size of traditional servo motors without built-in controllers with flange 130x130mm. This has only been possible through the use of extremely compact motors and the development of electronics and mechanics that utilise the latest technologies and manufacturing methods.
So what about vibrations and temperature? As with the other integrated servo motors in the range (50-4500W), both the motor and all electronic components have been specifically selected to withstand the rigorous demands required by industrial use.
Power Supply and Energy Savings
Powering this motor is easy since it only requires connection of the main voltage of 3x400VAC through the M23 connectors. Control voltage for the encoder and microprocessor circuitry is 24VDC: In an emergency-stop situation, where an approved relay has cut-off the main power, encoder position and other values are maintained by this control voltage.
Furthermore highly effective switching technology is used to ensure low heat generation resulting in appreciable energy savings.
One of the big advantages of using the integrated MAC motor®s is that you don't need to install a separate servo driver or controller in a control cabinet. This gives you many subsequent advantages: Space savings in your control cabinet, saving of expensive motor and encoder cables, saving time (and money) for cabling, noise is minimized due to internal cabling and also installation errors between driver and motor are eliminated.
In addition, service is much easier, since the motor and controller can be replaced as a single integrated unit. Hence downtime is minimized and production is maximized.
About JVL- JVL is
recognized as a leader for its development of efficient and compact integrated
motors for VAC and VDC. MAC motor series of integrated VAC servo motors
(up to 4500W and 13,5kW peak), and the QuickStep integrated stepper motors (up
to 25Nm). Both the servo motor and stepper motor series includes the
controller, PLC, encoder, AC power supply and bussystem integrated into one
compact unit. All industrial ethernet busses like Profinet, EtherCat, Ethernet
IP, Modbus TCP, Powerlink etc. are available. Furthermore, traditional modules like CANopen,
DeviceNet, Profibus, Profinet, Nano PLC, RS232/RS485/USB, Process Control can be incorporated.
JVL with more than 20 years of motion control experience enjoys a
reputation for the development of highly specialized integrated motors with
industrial ethernet and customized improvements. They work together with their
customers and representatives to find an economic, yet technically advanced
solution to complicated control applications.
JVL's wide selection of quality products for motion control components include:
Integrated VAC and VDC Servo motors, Integrated Stepper motors, VAC Servo motor
controllers, Motor drivers (Stepper, VAC and VDC), Brakes, Gears, and HMI
