Waukegan, Ill. — Yaskawa Electric America, Inc is pleased to announce the expansion of the Sigma II Series servo system with the Sigma FSP amplifier.
FSP stands for Flexible ServoPack and is built on the proven Sigma II SGDH amplifier power platform. This new amplifier provides built-in position control for simple indexing applications, electronic gearing, and cam profile following, in addition to the standard analog and pulse input of the Sigma II Series. The FSP positioning mode employs Yaskawa's latest generation of real-time adaptive tuning, which dramatically reduces following error and settling time. FlexWorks, the FSP setup software, features single-button auto-tuning, digital oscilloscope, FFT mechanical analysis, and wizard set-up of amplifier mode, units, and I-O.
The Sigma FSP is available in 110, 220, and 480 VAC models ranging in power from 100 watts to 5 kW and provides flexible position feedback. Yaskawa serial encoder feedback is standard providing customers with automatic motor recognition for combinations with all Sigma II rotary and linear servomotors. An optional model provides the capability to drive non-Yaskawa servomotors with industry standard A-B quadrature feedback.
In conjunction with the Sigma FSP release, Yaskawa Electric America announces the Special Purpose Motor Program, whereby Yaskawa and Elwood-Gettys have partnered to supply tested and documented servo amp/motor combinations for severe duty washdown and explosion-proof applications.
