B&R added two compact variants to its integrated motor-drive solution. Equipped with powerful processors, the new devices are perfect for applications where tight synchronization and positioning precision are important. 

With the new options, the ACOPOSmotor portfolio now covers a power range from 283 W to 2.3 kW.  A powerful processor gives the ACOPOSmotor variants a fast internal cycle time of 50 µs for current, speed and position control. This makes them the right choice for highly dynamic processes where high-speed movements must be synchronized with perfect precision. That opens up potential new applications for these devices in areas like printing and packaging.

12% boost in power density
The new ACOPOSmotor units have new motors with particularly high torque density. This enables the use of a considerably smaller flange and increasing the power density by 12%. There is also a broad selection of gearboxes to use with them.

Reduced cabling
The ACOPOSmotors are equipped with two 300° swivel connectors for hybrid cables. There is only one cable that is to be run to the control cabinet. The hybrid cable transmits both the power supply and POWERLINK communication. 

Additional ACOPOSmotor units are added via daisy-chain cabling and saves up to 90% of cabling effort and makes testing and installation substantially easier. The integrated motor-drive units come with the STO safety function. No extra wiring is necessary. 

Perfect for intelligent product transport
The compact ACOPOSmotor variants can be connected directly to the ACOPOStrak or ACOPOS 6D power supply. This simplifies cabling for processing stations and does not need an extra power supply.
