G5 Servo Drive with EtherCAT

Omron Industrial Automation now offers a complete line of compact Accurax G5 servo drives with built-in, EtherCAT communications to meet the growing need for high-speed, precise motion control as part of whole machine automation. The servo drives are certified compatible by the EtherCAT Technology Group. Omron selected the EtherCAT real-time I/O network as its I/O fieldbus of choice because it enables a seamless convergence of sequence control, motion control with servo and variable frequency drives, vision inspection, and high-speed I/O.

Omron’s Accurax G5 Servo system provides machine builders with simple-to-use capabilities to build more accurate, faster, smaller and safer machines. The G5 servo motors (R88M-KN_) have been scaled to provide an almost 25 percent reduction in motor weight. Side-by-side mounting of G5 servo drives (R88D-KN_-ECT) saves 50 percent cabinet space. In combination, they deliver submicron precision and millisecond settling time.
