Servo Drives better than anywhere from Rockwell automation

An electronic amplifier used to power electric servomechanisms is referred to as a servo drive. A servo drive constantly adjusts for deviations from expected behavior by monitoring the feedback signal from the servomechanism.

What are Servo Drives?

A servo drive gets a control system command signal, amplifies it, and sends electric current to a servo motor to produce motion proportional to the command signal. The command signal typically represents a desired velocity, but it can also represent a desired torque or position. A sensor attached to the servo motor communicates the motor’s current status to the servo drive. The actual motor status is then compared to the commanded motor status by the servo drive. It then modifies the voltage, frequency, or pulse width applied to the motor to compensate for any deviation from the commanded status.

How does it help in industry?

Servo systems have a variety of applications, including CNC machining, factory automation, and robotics. The addition of motor feedback gives them a significant advantage over traditional DC or AC motors. This feedback can be used to detect unwanted motion or to ensure that the commanded motion is accurate. An encoder of some kind is usually used to provide feedback. In constant speed changing applications, servos have a longer life cycle than typical AC wound motors. Servo motors can also function as brakes by shunting off the electricity generated by the motor itself.
