MR-J3 Servo Amplifier's Hallmark Performance Benefits Now Available Over EtherCAT
The MR-J3-xxA-RJ158, offered as part of the MR-J3 family, is an AC servo drive designed to provide users with connectivity to Mitsubishi Electric high-performance servo amplifiers over EtherCAT communication. It connects with the MR-J3-T04 unit that is part of the required construct for the EtherCAT solution, and also houses the EtherCAT interface RJ45 connectors. With this solution, Mitsubishi Electric offers connectivity to EtherCAT master controllers over CANopen or CoE protocols along with the CiA402 drive profile application communication. The drive can run control modes including position, speed and home position. The new line is designed for packaging, material handling, textile, machine tooling, printing and automotive applications, and leverages Mitsubishi Electric's best-in-class servo amplifier performance. Enterprises that require the open EtherCAT network can now connect with the MR-J3 series' machine analyzer and simulation, advanced gain search, vibration suppression control and auto tuning functions, among others. Mitsubishi Electric will offer the EtherCAT amplifier with a capacity ranging from 100W to 22kW. These amplifiers will be able to drive the MR-J3 servomotors, which are equipped with built-in absolute high precision 18bit (262,144 pls/rev) standard. In addition to being compact and offering superb controllability, certain models also allow for up to 350 percent torque overload during acceleration and deceleration periods.
