A wide range of sizes and feature rich functions make the Emerald servo drive the most versatile servo system in today’s automation market. State of the art software minimizes hardware cost while maximizing features and performance.
The Emerald servo drive is a certified SERCOS II drive designed to integrate with any industry standard SERCOS II controller. The SERCOS II standard forms a fiber optic isolated network and when interfaced to the IIS Emerald Automation Controller, this drive is part of a network of up to 32 servo drives or I/O devices with a minimum 500 micro-second scan rate.
The Emerald Servo Drive is available in 7 size ranges: 5, 10, 20, 40 and 60 amp @ 220 VAC and 25 and 50 amp @ 440 VAC. Emerald servo motors are available from 400W to 21kW, 1500 to 3400 RPM rated speeds with low and medium rotor inertia versions.
Selecting the proper motor and drive combination for a motion control application depends on the analysis of the load that is to be driven by its performance goal. A performance goal requires specifics of how far, how fast, and how often a given load needs to move. Motion analysis determines the peak and rated horsepower a motor and drive combination needs to produce to perform as required. The proper definition of the load and the actuator design should be as accurate as possible.
With the actuator size and the size of the load defined, the optimum performance will also determine the proper gearing between the motor and the load needed to achieve the goal. Gearing selection is a trade-off between speed and torque at the given horsepower. Varying a belt pulley ratio, leadscrew pitch, roll feed diameter, and/or gearbox ratio in the actuator design are examples of the gearing analysis that allows the designer to select the motor and drive combination that gives optimum system performance.
Optimum performance can be a tradeoff between system cost and initial goals. Industrial Indexing Systems, works with our customers to achieve those goals and guarantees an agreed-upon performance standard.
Our motors are for complex environments such as food production, medical applications, oil refining, explosive liquid, dust and vapor atmospheres, and submersible assemblies. Agency standards: UL, cUL, ATEX, IECEx and FDA (rated and certified).
