ACOPOSmicro drive supports stepper and servo motors

In addition to controlling stepper motors, a new variant of the ACOPOSmicro from B&R now also offers support for servo motors. This new addition to the ACOPOSmicro product family enables users to integrate different drive types. The flexible drive architecture makes it simple to switch from a stepper motor to a servo motor and vice versa. Users therefore benefit from the ability to combine both technologies in a single application with ease.

Despite its compact dimensions, the ACOPOSmicro also supports up to two axes rated at up to 500W each on one module. The compact drive requires a base surface of less than 50cm2 per axis, which makes it possible to implement multi-axis applications with minimal space and wiring requirements.

The ACOPOSmicro product family can be used in a nominal voltage range from 18-80V DC for low-power applications. State-of-the-art semiconductors ensure that minimal waste heat is generated, which eliminates the need for cooling. Furthermore, the intelligent power supply module features a network connection to offer new options for machine and system diagnostics.

In addition to the Safe Torque Off function and trigger inputs, the servo version of the ACOPOSmicro also has a 24V DC output that can, for example, be used to drive external brakes. Additional optional modules make it possible to adapt to customer-specific requirements at any time - without taking up more space.
