Mitsubishi Electric Automation offers the MR-J4 series of next-generation servomotors, servo amplifiers and motion controllers. According to the company, speed is essential to maximize machine throughput in motion control. The MR-J4 features 2,500-Hz frequency response speed time, which reduces settling times to less than 2 milliseconds and maximizes machine performance and throughput for machine builders and end users.
Safety features include a modular architecture that provides a redundant, two-channel safe torque off (STO) input on all MR-J4 amplifiers, as well as an optional module that provides safe stop (SS1) input in line with EN61800-5-2. For more advanced systems additional safety support needs, Mitsubishi Electric’s MR-J4B employs amplifiers and motion controllers with safety modules. Users can reduce costs by “tuning” their system configuration to meet only the needed safety requirements for the target applications, the company says.
In addition to the MR-J4A (analog/pulse train) and MR-J4B (SSCNET III/H motion network) models, the MR-J4 series includes two additional versions for two- and three-axis operation amplifiers. The servo is also fully supported by Mitsubishi Electric’s iQ Works integrated engineering software suite, which provides PLC, motion and HMI programming and development in a single software package.
