Integrated Brushless ServoNOW Servo System is Quick and Easy to Use 06/10/2011

St. Charles, IL - June 10, 2011 -- Bison's integrated brushless ServoNOW™ servo system for single axis applications was designed to meet basic motion needs by limiting programmability and using simple positioning and speed control applications. This state-of-the-art design reduces the amount of time and money spent on overall set-up and installation.

All input and output functions of the ServoNOW™ are programmed into the set-up feature through a simplified indexing type command structure making it able to interface to nearly any logic input and output. Analog inputs can be selected and set-up to control the position or velocity of the system. All set-up and installation can be accomplished with any standard PC with a built-in USB port. Free, downloadable host software called QuickLaunch is available with the package and loads on any Windows PC.

The ServoNOW™ incorporates an inclusive closed loop brushless servo motor with built-in driver, controller, magnetic encoder and 110/230VAC universal power supply all in one complete, compact package. Four programmable digital inputs and outputs, analog I/O (0 to 10VDC or 4 to 20MA, 12 bit) and position resolution of 4096 counts per revolution is included.

There are 5 standard, NEMA 34C face mount models with varying performance variations from 0 – 6900 rpm and 0 – 310 oz-in torque. Models can be customized to meet application specific requirements.

ServoNOW™ is ideal for customers who are users of:

  • Speed controlled motors
  • Motors using start/stop relays with brakes
  • Pneumatic cylinders with control position
  • Linear slides and ball screws
  • Clutch brakes
  • PLC's and simple switch logic or relay logic equipment

There are a multitude of industries which would benefit from the integrated ServoNOW™ servo system. Some of those industries include:

  • Packaging Equipment
  • Factory Automation
  • Laboratory Automation
  • Indexing Applications
  • Peristaltic & Metering Pumps Conveyors
  • Winders
  • Valves
