3rd Generation MAC140/MAC141 Motors with Absolute multiturn encoder technology

PRESS release: May2022

Birkerød, Denmark - JVL A/S, one of the world’s leading producers in the field of integrated servo and stepper motors, is proud to announce a completely new generation of Mini-MAC 140 W servo motor. This new motor is based on previous designs and customer feedback collected for many years and offers a wide pallet of options and possibilities which makes this product fit into almost any application. 
New Compact Motor
The well-known MAC140-A is now coming in a new version with new features and better performance already know in motors like MAC400-4500 and also with an option for absolute multiturn encoder without the use of battery. There will also be an option for control of external brake and for Safe Torque Off (STO).
It has a torque of 0.32Nm RMS and 0.9Nm peak and runs at speed from 0 to 4000rpm (134W).
New MosFet technology and more advanced FOC control filters have made the motors more efficient and with less noise.
Graphical Programming and Ethernet
This motor can be programmed internally using MacTalk and the icon-based ePLC programming tool for simple and rather complex applications. It can be used for stand-alone applications and also in combination with Ethernet based applications.
If you use industrial Ethernet then functionality and handling is similar for all supported protocols: Profinet, EtherNet/IP, SERCOS, EtherCAT, Powerlink and ModbusTCP/UDP.

Using JVL’s universal software MacTalk® you can even change between the different Ethernet protocols just by making a firmware update—it is free and you can do it as many times as you like.
