Battery-driven DC drives are very common in drive technology for applications where there is no AC or three-phase current network available.
In modern, automated production lines, there is a trend towards drive solutions that can operate independently of AC or three-phase current networks. Automated guided vehicles, for example, use batteries as a power supply during operation, which require a suitable low input voltage at the drive. Also applications in which no alternating current may be used for reasons of user safety require such drives - for example in medical technology or robotics. To meet these challenges, Panasonic offers special servo motors and servo drivers from the MINAS A5M series. The drives are optimized for a supply voltage of 24 or 48V DC and achieve a rated power output of 200 or 400W. With their compact dimensions, the A5M motors offer high power density coupled with very good energy efficiency. They are also characterized by their long life time and their overload capacity, which is particularly important in the case of short-term power peaks. The 23-bit absolute encoder and the pulse train with up to 500kpps ensure precise and dynamic positioning.
