ADVANCED Motion Controls® Expands FlexPro Servo Drive Range


New from ADVANCED Motion Controls® is the FM100-50-EM FlexPro® EtherCAT servo drive. This new servo drive is capable of outputting 50 amps continuous current rms and 100 amps peak current, and has a wide input voltage range of 20-90 DC.

Despite the drive’s small size, it has a maximum continuous power output of 4.5 kW, so it can handle the most demanding of applications. Designed with compact form and power density in mind, the mini-sized FlexPro® drives can outperform larger-sized digital servo drives and still be integrated into tight spaces. While slightly larger than the micro-sized models, two mini-sized FlexPro® drives can still fit on a standard business card.

The FM100-50-EM’s small size and easy connectivity allows it to be installed anywhere in a machine with standard cabling techniques. This frees the up the engineer to place the drive wherever necessary while still maintaining the small size.
