Simplex Motion’s integrated electric servo motors are engineered for high output torque, energy efficiency and precise control. The compact design enables cost optimization and easy configuration. The technology behind the products is designed and developed in Sweden, and patented since 2012.
“Half Weight – Double Torque”
The advantage of the Simplex Motion smart integrated servomotor is that it offers a very powerful motion control capability at the same time as its weight and size is only up to half of other integrated motors on the market.
By utilizing a patented sensor technology, Simplex Motion integrated servomotors are compact, high performance and a complete servomotor system. Compared with other existing integrated servomotors on the market, Simplex Motion servomotors excels in output torque for its size and weight as well as cost efficiency.

The SM-Series is SimplexMotions servomotor solution with enclosed aluminum casing with 100W of continues output power.
The SH-series is an high performance open framed servomotor solution with 160W-300W continues output power.
The SC-series is a compact open framed servomotor solution with 25W-80W continues output power.
The SimplexMotionTool software runs on a PC computer in the Windows environment and allows the user to configure and test the SimplexMotion motor units.
The first part of the software establishes a connection to the motor unit using the USB of RS485 communication interface.
The functionality of the motor unit is entirely controlled by registers that can be read and written. The next part of the software allows the user to inspect and change these registers. The registers are updated in real time and form the parameters and settings of the motor system. The current register values can also be saved to a memory to be loaded at the next startup.
To facilitate performance validation and optimization it is necessary to be able to measure parameters in the motor device. To accomplish this there is a recorder feature within the SimplexMotion device. This part allows direct access to this recorder feature. Up to 4 channels can be recorded simultaneously, and can be triggered from different events.
To make it simple to quickly test the motor we have the following screen. It allows running the motor in speed, position or torque mode. A few common motor data values are shown, and other can be selected for inspection in the rolling graph. These data can also be logged to a file. Graphing and logging is running even if the motor is controlled from another interface, allowing this to be a convenient debugging mode.
Typical use for the SimplexMotion devices is in position control with rapid transfers from one position to another. To accomplish this with high performance and a minimum of mechanical vibrations it is important to use ramping where the acceleration and maximum speed are controlled. To further improve performance when dealing with high inertia loads it is common to use feed forward control in addition to the PID feedback regulator.
