Enabling High Accuracy and Controlled Automation for Intended Operations
Manufacturing establishments are banking on synchronous motors specifically AC type servo motors for the operation of collaborative robots or cobots owing to high accuracy and control. Utilizing the PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) of the DC source via fast switching transistors, the optimum voltage and current waveforms for the AC motors are created. The angle detector attached on the other side of the shaft provides high-accuracy information of angle in order to control rotation speed and rotation angle of the rotor. Further coupling with a feedback system – an encoder - allows operators to control robots as intended, making them a great fit for automation purposes. However, the application of servo motors is restricted to large-scale enterprises due to high initial costs

Leveraging ‘Integrated’ and ‘Ethernet’ for Compact Size and Non-Delay Operation
Direct drive industrial robotic motors are carving space in industrial robotics on account of their greater torque. The torque of direct drive motors is controlled more precisely by adjusting the winding current, eliminating the need for cost prohibitive sensors. Low inertial property of direct drive motors enable acceleration and direction reversal at a sweeping rate. Absence of slack in teeth couplings allow accurate automation, unlike gear motors.
Integrating industrial robotic motors with an on-board drive, reduces size, wirework, and expenses. The control electronics are attached at the rear, beside the feedback system, dismissing external electronics packages required to drive or control the motor. In addition, the rear of the integrated industrial robotic motors encompass connections for power, communications, and I/O.
Manufacturers are shifting to deterministic network - industrial ethernet (IE) – on the grounds of high-speed, cost-efficient, and mutual physical layer across the network. The system permits for a pliable network hub and a flexible number of nodes. Further, time-sensitive networking (TSN) complements the protocol by adding latency to deterministic operation for delay prevention.
