SmartNews | April 2022

Moog Animatics is pleased to announce the launch of its new Class 6 D-style SmartMotor™ product line. These new models expand the capabilities of the already highly programmable SmartMotor servo system, integrating a motor, battery-less multiturn absolute encoder, amplifier, and controller along with a range of communication options including USB, dual port Industrial Ethernet (EtherCAT®, PROFINET®, EtherNet/IPTM) and standard RS-232/RS-485 and CAN connections.

The extended power range, together with a wider ambient operating temperature range (-20° to 100° C), significantly expands the application of the Class 6 D-style motors in areas such as autonomous guided vehicles, agriculture automation and a broader range of industrial automation.
