Introducing the New Class 6 Industrial Ethernet SmartMotors 
in Both Standard and High Pole Count Versions


These new Class 6 SmartMotors have a new powerful processor that operates at nearly twice the processor speed of Class 5. The PID rate is fixed at 62.5useconds with 64K User program memory (twice that of prior SmartMotors) and larger Cam point memory space for cam tables to >3K points.

These SmartMotors are able to support Standard Industrial Ethernet protocols including: EtherCATand PROFINET. Able to support both standard and high pole count commutation, these products deliver fully closed-loop PID control. Class 6 also features a dedicated high current brake output control. 

Key Features: 

  • Dual Port Ethernet (no Ethernet switches or hubs required)
  • USB interface for programming, configuration and live diagnostics
  • RS-485 Half Duplex communications port
  • Modbus Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) Slave (RS-485)
  • Full floating-point math and trigonometric functions with 32-bit precision results
  • Dual trajectory generators enabling relative and absolute position moves or velocity moves on top of gearing or camming
  • Advanced gearing, allowing preset traverse and take-up winding parameters, including dwells and wrap counts
  • Advanced camming including cubic spline interpolation and dynamic frequency and amplitude changes
  • Virtual-axis mastering into camming through gearing which enables stand-alone; multi-axis coordinated motion
  • Programmable and non-programmable protection features (both hardware and software)
  • On Board local I/O including:
  • Drive Enable Input
  • Fault Output
  • Travel Limit inputs
  • Differential Encoder bus up to 500k Hz count rate
  • 4 General Use inputs
  • 1 High Speed Input
  • 1 High current output (may be used for external brake)
