Solved Servo Applications

Automated Guided Cart


Automated guided carts come in various forms with widely varying load capacities from tens to hundreds of thousands of kilograms cargo weight in order to transport materials from one location to another. Either used as tugs or to position themselves under/over the pending target loads, these autonomous delivery vehicles are perfect for manufacturing and/or assembly processes and can be scaled to the size of the operation.

Solutions Technology

ADVANCED Motion Controls' DigiFlex® Performance PCB mount drives provided accurate and reliable operation

  • Recommended by long-time sales representative with direct knowledge of customer's needs
  • Competitive drives produced errors when performing stopping operations with very inconsistent low-speed regulation that resulted in speed perturbation
  • DigiFlex® Performance PCB mount drives performance was considered "...outstanding!" and exceeded customer's expectations
  • particularly low speed velocity control

Cooperation to improve ultimate project success

  • ADVANCED Motion Controls able to quickly implement and ship modified drive and mounting card to meet specific system specifications
  • Servo drive's overall output power level matched application's constraints
  • Customer specified connectors on the mounting card to ease their final integration and installation
