Servo motor and amplifiers for designers and end users
The Sigma-7 rotary, linear and direct drive servos and amplifiers from Yaskawa are designed for system designers and automation end users. Sigma-7’s features include 24-bit encoding and a package of algorithms designed to correct machine imperfections, including ripple compensation, anti-resonance and friction model compensation. It also features dual-axis amplifiers that mount in smaller spaces, cut parts counts and regenerate power for long-term energy conservation.
Eighteen Sigma-7 products cover a wide range of motion control applications, with rotary servos from 3 W to 55 kW in output. Users can choose from two direct drive servos and four linear products, including a SigmaTrac option designed for easy bolt-on, plug-in implementation. Sigma-7 Servopack amplifiers offer the option of interface via EtherCAT, Mechatrolink or analog connections. The line also includes a SigmaLogic Servopack that sequences motion using the add-on instructions (AOIs) used by programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
