A range of integrated AC servo motors makes JVL a world leader in the field of motion control. The numerous features of these motors include a modular concept that makes it extremely easy to adapt the motors to a very wide range of applications.
JVL is now introducing what is claimed to be the first wireless integrated servo motor. The MAC00-FB4 module facilitates wireless control of the MAC motors.
The new module makes it possible to have a direct Bluetooth connection to the motor. Via the Bluetooth link, the motor can be set up and controlled with the same possibilities offered by a serial connections. Functionality is exactly as with the nano PLC module but, instead of the serial connector, the FB4 module is equipped with an antenna. The module can be programmed via JVL's MacTalk software, and control is typically achieved using either a mobile phone or a PC; on a PC, MacTalk can be used directly. Commands or programs can be sent from the user's own program.
In addition, the module offers the possibility to connection to a local zero-set sensor. Connection of supply and signals takes place through three robust M12 connectors.
The module has a standard antenna plug connection, to which the included antenna is connected. Other antennae can be connected if required.
