Sigma-7 SERVOPACKs are fully digital, networkable servo amplifiers that offer the output needed for precise, high speed actuation of one or two axes of servo motor motion. The power options range from 30 watt to 15 kW with 100/200 and 400 VAC operation. The Sigma-7 line of AC brushless rotary servo motors covers a full range of load requirement in both small and medium capacities. The advanced technology built into Sigma-7 sets a new industry standard for responsiveness, precision and long-term reliability. Each Sigma-7 motor is engineered to maximize compatibility with existing Sigma-5 motors in control electronics, electrical rating and mounting conventions. Sigma-7 motors can be equipped with matching gearheads to suit a wider range of speed or mechanical linkage requirements. Control two axes of servo motion within a single SERVOPACK amplifier that offers the advanced options of a MECHATROLINK-III motion network. Dual axis capability decreases system costs, cuts component counts and conserves panel space. Boost the performance, precision and versatility of your automation system with an amplifier that delivers the advanced options of a MECHATROLINK III motion network. Plug-and-play MECHATROLINK III functionality means fast 1000 Mbps communication and the ability to synchronize control of up to 62 slaves. Amplifier bandwidth of 3.1 kHz sets a new speed standard for servo response, and Yaskawa’s advanced set of servo tuning algorithms assure world class vibration suppression, autotuning and tuning-less commissioning without the need for installer intervention. The result is reduced settling times, reliably precise control and faster setup of a new automation system.
The flexible design of Yaskawa machine controllers allows cost-effective configuration of motion control for any sized automation system. Controllers can be easily adapted for stand-alone use on a single axis, for networking with other control devices or for complete control of a multi-axis machine. The MPiec Series offers up to 62 axes of motion control in 6 controller variations while adhering to the IEC61131-3 and PLCopen global programming standards. The control variations are MP3200iec, MP3300iec, MP2310iec, MP2300Siec, MP2600iec and Sigma-7Siec. Control capacity is the hallmark of the MP3200iec controller, with a maximum of 62 axes of motion control and as many as 8 slots for option modules. The MP3300iec controller offers the most advanced control technology in the MPiec line, plus control for 62 axes of motion and up to 8 slots for option modules. The time-tested reliability of MP2310iec is available with motion control to 16 axes and 3 slots for option modules. The MP2300Siec is a controller with a single option module slot and up to 16 axes of motion control. The MP2600iec saves control cabinet space by combining a servo amplifier and machine controller in one unit, featuring 1.5 axes of motion control.
