Analog Servo Drive Amplifiers

Advanced Motion Controls' family of brush and brushless Analog Servo Drives provides unparalleled benefits in both simplicity and performance. Drive setup and operation is more straightforward than digital drives, while achieving higher bandwidth and faster response times at a lower cost. Analog drive technology has been a staple of servo system solutions since day one, and our years of experience in building the highest quality products has created a solid and continuously improving selection of analog drives. A variety of command options, including ±10V analog, PWM and Direction, dual Sine wave, and specialized electric vehicle commands make the Advanced Motion Controls' family of analog drives your best choice for proven servo solutions.

µZ Plug-In Drives

µZ’s are the smallest off-the-shelf servo drives from ADVANCED Motion Controls.  Pronounced ‘Micro-Z’ these plug-in drives are designed for embedded applications in a wide range of industries including: Robotics, Lab Automation, Homeland Security/Military, Electric Mobility, Medical and Packaging.

AMC UZ Graphic

µZ servo drives are designed to drive brushless and brushed DC motors at a high switching frequency.  To increase system reliability and to reduce cabling costs, the drives are designed for direct integration into your PCB.  Weighing in at less than 9 grams, µZ Drives output 10A peak and 5A continuous and operate with a bus voltage range of 10-36VDC.

Designed without the need for a heatsink, the µZ’s are true featherweights with a high power to weight ratio.  The µZ’s are fully protected against over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, over-heating, and short-circuits. Depending on the model, the drives interface with digital controllers that have analog ±10V or PWM/Direction commands. These servo drives require only a single unregulated isolated DC power supply, and are fully RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.
