Mitsubishi Electric Automation releases MELSERVO-J5 series of servo products

08 April 2020

The next generation MELSERVO-J5 series of AC servo motors, amplifiers and motion control units released by Mitsubishi Electric Automation Inc. brings performance, reliability, flexibility and efficiency to a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, packaging, printing, converting, material handling and more.

A “quick tuning” function allows users to quickly and reliably tune their servo mechanism in approximately 0.3 Source: Mitsubishi Electric Automation Inc.Source: Mitsubishi Electric Automation Inc.seconds. The servo amplifier sets the speed loop gain and suppresses machine resonance through the servo on command. No tuning experience is required because gain values are automatically generated, reducing machine setup time and effort.

Additional functions and features include an advanced vibration suppression function, multi axes servo amplifiers, expanded predictive maintenance capabilities powered by Mitsubishi Electric’s Maisart AI technology, a 31.25 μs communication cycle time, multi-network capability including compatibility with CC-Link IE TSN and EtherCAT. In addition, MELSERVO-J5, like previous MELSERVO products, was designed with long-term migration paths in mind, making retrofits and upgrades, both now and in the future, easier and more cost-effective for users.

The fast communication cycle time combined with a 3.5 kHz speed frequency response rate ensures precise, responsive movement and short settling time. Compatibility with CC-Link IE TSN facilitates internet of things infrastructure across the manufacturing enterprise, and enables time synchronization across all connected devices at one gigabyte per second (1 Gbps). The MELSERVO-J5 series is also able to meet any axis requirements, from single axis to a 256 multi-axis system, due to its scalable synchronous axes — while all the motion modules are programmed in a single software environment.
