SMX9G16-25 Module Servo Drive

This product page covers SMB9G16-25 and SMC9G16-25 models (the X in SMX9G16-25 is a variable placeholder). SMB models use bus power logic. SMC models require an external 24 VDC logic power supply.

The SMX9G16-25 Gamma Series Digital PWM Servo Drive in the Module package configuration operates from 190-370 VDC and can output up to 20 A of continuous current.

All SMX9G16 models feature a current loop bandwidth of up to 5 kHz. Versions of SMX9G16 Gamma Series drives are available as UL Recognized Components for the USA and Canada, and can control brushless (standard servo and high-speed spindle), brush type, rotary, linear, voice coil, and AC induction motors. They also offer expanded command and control modes, including CANopen and indexing/point-to-point. Feedback is accepted from a wider range of devices and protocols, namely absolute serial encoders (BiSS, EnDat, and T-Format) and analog Sin/Cos encoders.

FOC All Gamma Series employ Field Oriented Control method which allows accurate control in both steady state or transient operation, and optimal orientation of the magnetic field.
Space Vector Modulation Glentek's advanced algorithms allow for maximum utilization of the DC bus voltage while generating minimum harmonic distortion of the currents in the winding of 3-phase AC motor.
Digital Current Loops Current loop bandwidths up to 5 kHz.
Digitally Tuned All parameters set digitally. No potentiometers to adjust. DSP control for the ultimate in high performance.
Parametric Filtering Provides control engineers advanced filtering to eliminate unwanted system mechanical resonance.
Smart-Comm Initialization Eliminates the need for Hall sensor or commutation tracks for many applications.
Auto Phase Advance Plug and Play for all types of three phase brushless motors. Provides control engineers the ability to connect any motor to the drive's motor outputs. The drives smart algorithm will automatically find and align the motor phases to allow for the most optimized smoothness and efficient commutation.
Sinusoidal Commutation For the ultimate in efficiency and smooth motion, commutates from almost any resolution linear, rotary encoder, or Hall sensors only.
Fault protection Short from output to output, short from output to ground, drive RMS over current, drive under/over voltage, drive over temperature, motor over temperature.
On-the-fly mode switching This feature allows the drive to switch between any mode of operation on-the-fly. That is, the drive can switch between current to velocity (or velocity to current), current to position (or position to current), and velocity to position (or position to velocity) while the motor is in motion. This feature is available upon request. Please contact Glentek application engineers for assistance.
Software configurable Glentek’s Windows based MotionMaestro software provides ease of set-up, monitoring and tuning with no previous programming experience required. This software is Windows 7, 8, and 10 compatible.
