The two companies will show off a new jointly developed servo control kit at the sps 2019 exhibition, this week in Nuremberg.

The EVALKIT-ROBOT-1 has been designed to help users develop new designs with precise positioning and high-end motion in servo drives and robotics. The kit contains a maxon 100-Watt BLDC motor with built-on 1024-pulse incremental encoder. The motor ensures provides fine control even at low rotor speeds.

The servo control board in with the kit uses the ST STSPIN32F0A intelligent 3-phase motor controller and a complete inverter stage designed with ST power transistors ready for connection with the motor. Motor-control firmware is also included, allowing projects to get off the ground quickly and simply.
