Developments in sensors have extended the potential of servos to an impressive degree, but there’s another big change in the wind. Bosch Rexroth has now created servos that can serve as sensors.
The servos send information on things like their temperature to the controllers. “For the first time,” say Rexroth experts, “the servomotor can act as a reliable sensor, as well as a data source.”
We’re talking about the new MS2N motors. They come in six sizes and each size is available in multiple lengths. They offer 30% higher torque densities than the previous models, and the sensor capabilities allow more tighter operating tolerance ranges.
It’s all part of the increasing IIOT communication possibilities that make Industry 4.0 a realistic prospect.
The MS2N motor range has single-cable capacity, and the motors deliver plenty of power along with energy savings. You could say that they combine all the major new trends in industrial motion control in one small but mighty package.
If you’re ready to look at new Rexroth industrial motion control components, we’re glad to help. If you’re pleased with your legacy components and want to make sure they’re in trim so they can continue serving you into the future, we can help with that, too.
We have the largest selection of legacy Rexroth electric components in the nation, engineers who really know Rexroth, and charter planes at the ready. Get our number into your phone and you’ll be ready for anything.
