JVL’s ServoStep integrated stepper motors now with wireless industrial Ethernet
JVL, the Danish motion control designer and manufacturer, has recently added a wireless industrial Ethernet communication option to its ServoStep integrated stepper motor series. Available from Mclennan, JVL’s UK distribution partner, the new wireless option supports Profinet, EtherNet/IP and ModbusTCP/UDP protocols and is available across JVL’s MIS and MIL series integrated motors in NEMA sizes 17 and 43, offering output torques from 0.3 to 25 Nm.
Mclennan notes that industrial Ethernet brings added application flexibility for machine builders and OEMs, and says that the wireless control option can be particularly useful for autonomous motion tasks. Application areas include battery powered AGVs, remotely operated machinery, theatre and stage automation systems, etc, or where motion control from a tablet or mobile phone is required.
JVL’s ServoStep integrated stepper motors combine a microstepping motor and drive with motion controls and a variety of interfacing and communications modules in a single compact unit. JVL says the single package integrated motor solution makes wiring straightforward and significantly reduces installation costs, while also providing improved electrical noise protection compared to cabinet housed drives with long noise-prone, motor power and control cable runs. The same ‘built-in technology is applied to JVL’s wide range of integrated servo motors – also available from Mclennan.
