The M2DC Series Servo System from MOONS’ features drives that are high on functionality with a range of control options, programmable notch filters, an anti-vibration algorithm and auto-tuning. The drives are designed to be used with MOONS’ servo motors in the 60/100/200/300/400/550W/750W power range. The M2DC drives can communicate over Modbus/RTU, CANopen, Ethernet/IP and Ethernet(eSCL). Using MOONS’ Q Programmer software they can create complex motion programs that can be stored in thedrive and then run in a stand-alone mode.
Easy to Use On-line Auto Tuning
The M2 servo system can accomplish real time response to the dynamic feedback of the load andn optimize gain tuning parameters on-line automatically. The auto tuning function can greatly save on debugging time and simplify the debugging procedure. This can all be done by the PC based software in only a few minutes.
Before auto-tuning     After auto-tuning
Advanced Anti-Vibration Function
The M2 servo system has an advanced antivibration function which includes anti-resonance and vibration damping.
● Anti-resonance uses two notch filters to overcome the resonance from the natural mechanical characteristic of the system.
● Vibration damping uses an adjustable damping ratio in the controller to improve the damping characteristic of the system, which can reduce the vibration of the system.
Safety Standards
Functional Safety -- STO (Safe Torque Off)
Safe Torque Off (STO) is a hardware level safety protection function. When the STO function is activated, the drive’s hardware circuitry automatically forces all power transistors OFF to cut off the motor current, immediately disable motor operation and prevent unexpected restarting. The operator isn’t required to physically shut off the electromagnetic contactor to ensure personal and equipment safety in case of an emergency.
Internal Regeneration Resistors
All M2 Servo Series drives have an internal regeneration resistor.
Digital Pulse Position Modes
Support STEP/DIR, CW/CCW Pulse and A/B quadrature pulse.
● Open Collector Pulse Input: 500KHz, 5-24VDC
● Differential Line Input: 2MHz, 5VDC
Analog Input Control Modes
● Two analog inputs
● Support analog position, analog velocity and analog torque control
Built-In Q Programmer Software
Q Programmer is MOONS’ own single-axis motion control software based on SCL commands. It can be used to create sophisticated and functional programs that can be saved to a drive’s nonvolatile memory, and then run standalone, or without a permanent connection to the host. Q drives offer a high level of flexibility and functionality to the machine designer and system integrator.

SCL(Serial command language), was developed by MOONS’ to give users a simple way to control a motor drive via a serial port. This eliminates the need for separate motion controllers or to supply control signals, like Pulse&Direction, to your servo drives. It also provides an easy way to interface to a variety of the industrial devices like PLC, industrial computers, and HMI, which most often have standard serial ports for communication.
eSCL is based on MOONS’s SCL for commanding and querying motion control products over Ethernet.

■ Holding Brake Option

A holding brake is used to stop the load from moving when power is lost. Typical applications include vertical axis that would drop if power is lost. Holding brakes are not intended to slow a motor that is spinning. The motor should be stopped and then the brake applied.
With no power, a spring presses a friction plate into a stationary plate, whitch produces holding torque. When power is applied to the brake coil, the brake solenoid pulls the friction plate away from the stationary plate, whitch allows the motor to turn.

■ Shaft Seal

A shaft seal can extend the life or a motor by keeping contaminants out of the motor. MOONS’ servo motors typically include a shaft seal shipped with the motor, but not installed in the motor. These are high quality seals. Installing a shaft seal is recommended if the front of the motor will be exposed to significant amounts of oil, dirt or liquids.
