The MAC motor is an AC servo motor and controller combined in a single unit, offering low pricing for the OEM market. Integrating electronics in a motor has been achieved previously, but never in such a compact unit with true AC servo performance. In the MAC motor, the servo motor, hall sensors, encoder and control circuitry have been especially designed by JVL to provide a self-contained, integrated unit in which the driver and controller are mounted behind the motor in a sealed housing.
System intelligence is thereby decentralized by off-loading control functions to the device level. This makes the MAC motor well suited for distributed control architectures which are prevalent in factory automation processes today.
The MAC motor is available in 3 models: 50, 95 or 140W. NEMA23 flange is standard so the MAC can directly replace a step motor without mechanical modification. Motor parameters are set-up via an RS232 port using Windows software MacTalk.
