Animatics’ Class 5 SmartMotorT features an internal brushless motor, encoder, controller, and amplifier, as well as Combitronic technology that enables linking of more than 100 SmartMotor servos over CAN. The system can read from, write to, and control any other SmartMotor to ensure high dependability and no data collision or loss. One program can be written in one motor to control all, or each motor can have its own program, sharing resources with every other, for one giant multitasking, multiprocessing system. Even without the Combitronic option, communication speeds are up to 115.2 kbaud in both the RS-232 and RS-485 ports. Enhancements to the previous version include the addition of isolated, 24-V I/O; advanced gearing, camming, and contouring functions; and increased program execution speeds.
