The ACOPOSmicro from B&R Industrial Automation Corp. (Roswell, GA) offers support for two servo motors, allowing users to integrate different drive types. The architecture enables changeover from a stepper to a servo motor, and vice versa. It also supports up to two axes with performance levels of 500W each on one module. The device requires a base surface of less than 50 cm2 per axis. The devices can be used in a nominal voltage range from 18 VDC to 80 VDC for low-power applications. The power supply module with a network connection offers options for machine and system diagnostics. The servo version has a 24 VDC output that can be used to drive external brakes. Additional optional modules allow users to adapt to custom requirements.
