Shibaura Machine Products

The Shibaura/Toshiba Machine X Series are high performance servo products available in North America with local stock, support and service. The X Series represents quality products at competitive prices.

High speed and performance

Excellent speed control is realized by the use of dedicated speed/current digital control loop hardware and high-speed sampling rate of the motor’s positioning sensor.  The amplifier includes a servo loop damping function creating stable motion operations in machines of low rigidity construction.

The VLASX amplifier models offered by SHIBAURA/Toshiba Machine

The standard amplifiers feature a built-in command system that allows machine control for speed, current, direct feed and draw control. Direct feed and draw control modes utilize the pulse and direction type input or a slave encoder input. Both current and speed control utilize an analog +/- 10 VDC input command.  Available in ten sizes; 2.2 to 166 Arms/phase, 230 to 460 VAC.
