ADVANCED Motion Controls debuts FlexPro digital servo drives

AMC FE060-25-EM Servo Drive

The FE060-25-EM is the first servo drive of the new FlexPro digital drive family from ADVANCED Motion Controls (AMC). Designed with compact form and power density in mind, the micro-sized FE060-25-EM can outperform larger-sized digital servo drives and still be integrated into tight spaces.

At just 1.5 x 1 x 0.6 in. (38 x 25 x 16 mm) in size, the footprint of the drive is approximately the same as two standard postage stamps. In other words, four of these drives can fit on a standard business card. Even with its small size, the FE060-25-EM can supply brushed, brushless, stepper, and linear servo motors with up to 25 A continuous current and 50 A peak current.

AMC FE060-25-EM Servo Drive

Here are some of the features of the FE060-25-EM servo drive:

  • 10 to 55 Vdc supply voltage
  • Highest power density servo drive from AMC to date
  • EtherCAT Communication
  • Incremental encoder and BISS C-mode feedback
  • Torque, velocity, and position operating modes
  • Configuration and full loop tuning
    IMPACT architecture

IMPACT (Integrated Motion Platform And Control Technology) is the architecture that makes AMC’s FlexPro drives possible. The stacking of circuit boards with creative selection and placement of high-power components allows for much higher power density than previously produced servo drives.

A developer version is available for proof-of-concept and testing purposes – part number FD060-25-EM. It comes with an FE060-25-EM soldered to a larger board equipped with various connectors for simplified interfacing.

The small size of the FE060-25-EM makes well-suited for cobots, AGVs, lab and warehouse automation, military equipment, and any other integrated design.
