DS2020 Drive with Combitronic™ Capability

SmartNews | February 2021

Moog Animatics is pleased to announce the DS2020 digital servo drive with Combitronic capability. This single-axis drive operates a Moog CD series motor, providing high-torque capabilities for large axes of motion and other demanding applications.

The DS2020 Combitronic version expands the standard drive’s capabilities by allowing it to act as a follower device on the SmartMotor™ Combitronic network, which means the drive can be easily controlled by any SmartMotor on that network. This allows the DS2020 Combitronic drive to fit and work seamlessly in your SmartMotor-based machines and applications, and allows you to use the familiar SMI software and AniBasic programming language to configure and program the entire system.

It also offers these advantages:

  • Combitronic technology is standard*
  • Significant space saving during installation
  • Personalized functionalities and flexible configurations
  • Quick, precise movements
  • Cooling options: natural and fan cooling
  • Integral holding brakes

*Allows control of the DS2020 drive as a SmartMotor follower

Incorporating the SmartMotor Combitronic communication protocol into the DS2020 drive allows target customers to simplify their machine, make them more compact, and remain within the SmartMotor's ease-of-use ecosystem while also addressing the power needs of these large axes of motion and other demanding applications.
