Combitronic™ Integrated Motor Technology

Combitronic technology is an optional communications protocol that is available for the Moog Animatics SmartMotor™ servo. It operates over a standard “CAN” (Controller Area Network) interface. This is the same basic hardware used in most automobiles as well as in familiar industrial networks such as CANopen™ and DeviceNet™.

Combitronic technology may coexist with either CANopen or DeviceNet protocols. However, unlike these common control networks, Combitronic has no controller or follower. Each Combitronic-equipped SmartMotor connected to the same network communicates on an equal footing, sharing all information, and therefore, sharing all processing resources.
