Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control – Advanced Motion Controls (AMC), a leading provider of servo amplifier solutions, is proud to announce the addition of six new CANopen servo drives with Extended Environment capabilities to their FlexPro® line. These new drives join AMC’s existing EtherCAT Extended Environment FlexPro drives, making the FlexPro® line the go-to solution for motion control applications in harsh environments.

Many motion control applications take place in conditions that are less than ideal, such as extreme temperatures, high and low pressures, shocks and vibrations, and contamination. Electronics, including servo drives, can malfunction or sustain permanent damage in these conditions. That’s why AMC offers off-the-shelf extended environment servo drives within the FlexPro™, DigiFlex® Performance™, and AxCent™ drive families, as well as custom-made modified servo drives to handle extreme conditions.

Motion Control – Application – Mini Pan/Tilt for HD Cameras

Motion Control – Custom Gearmotors
motion control - pan tilt stage

With digital television fast approaching, camera manufacturers are flooding the market with new, lightweight units, but few companies are providing the professional equipment that goes with the upcoming change.

“We searched across all known small motor manufacturers, but only Maxon Precision Motor was able to provide a motor that met our requirements,”
motion control - maxon

Fall River, MA — Motion Control  Application – Up until 2006, the only broadcast-use professional motorized Pan/Tilts in the market were very heavy. This is because the equipment was built to hold analog video cameras, which could weigh as much as 50 kg and up. With February 2009 approaching, the final day of transition for digital TV, the leading HD camera manufacturers, Sony and Panasonic, have flooded the US market with new lightweight HD digital cameras, such as HDR-FX1 and AGHVX200, respectively. These new, HD cameras weigh less than 4.5 kg, and that weight continues to drop as the use of flash memory storage devices continue to rise.
