The AC servo system used in machine tools, industrial robots, and variety of other manufacturing machinery precisely controls the rotor position, rotation direction, rotation speed, and torque of servo motors. Features such as fast calculation, the ability to generate and output multiple waveforms, and feedback control are necessary to achieve fast response to changes in load, improved stopping accuracy, and minimal vibration.
The AC Drive system is a variable-speed controller that precisely controls the shaft rotation speed, typically, an induction motor or synchronous motor, and is widely used in industrial machinery such as production line conveyors, cranes, elevators, fans, pumps, and compressors.
