Don’t forget these two things when selecting an amplifier for a servo-motion application

Jan 29, 2019

Design engineers who are running sizing calculations for a servo application should consider dynamic braking as well as regenerative braking requirements when selecting a servomotor and digital amplifier for that design. The terms are sometimes used interchangeably, as both types of braking involve processing regenerative energy. But as we’ll explore, there is a subtle difference between dynamic braking and regenerative braking.

We’ll also explore how to leverage the benefits of servo amplifiers that include dynamic-braking provisions.
