The AB5 amplifier revolutionizes the driving concept for Nanomotion ceramic servo motors, enabling a frictionless and smooth motion throughout the entire velocity range. At stop, the inherent brake is activated, maintaining the many advantages of brake at power off. Consequently, the control scheme is simplified, facilitating the use of any low cost servo controller to achieve outstanding performance. As a result, in addition to our own FlexDC Motion Controller, the whole range of controllers in the marketplace can be used with Nanomotion motors, as well as generic control algorithms. No custom algorithm is needed to be used with Nanomotion motors. In addition, exceptional control performance is achieved at servo systems, showing robust performance at various working conditions.
