Press Release

March 13, 2013 – Oriental Motor Introduces AR Series with Built-in Controller (Stored Data)


AR Series with Built-in Controller (Stored Data)Oriental Motor is pleased to announce the introduction of our newest high-efficiency AR Series motor and driver package, now available with built-in controller (stored data) type featuring I/O, Modbus or EtherCAT (via a gateway converter) communications. The AR Series utilizes Oriental Motor’s unique AlphaStep closed loop control along with lower heat generation for continuous duty. The AR Series now has new pricing making the AR Series the right choice for many cost sensitive applications that need a high level of performance.

The Benefits of the additional built-in controller (stored data) type motor and driver package is that the built-in pulse generator allows the motor to be driven by a simple connection to a PLC or other devices. The burden on the PLC or touch screen (HMI) is reduced because the information necessary for the motor operation is built into the driver. This simplifies the system configuration for single or multi-axis control.

AR Series products are available with geared and brake options along with AC or DC input drivers. A 3m (9.8 ft) cable comes standard. Frame sizes or geared options are available in 28 mm (1.10 in.), 42 mm (1.65 in.), 60 mm (2.36 in.) and 90 mm (3.54 in.).

The AR Series' key features are:

  • Built-in controller (stored data type) or pulse input type driver
  • Closed Loop
  • High efficiency and energy saving
  • High accuracy and quick positioning
  • Continuous operation due to low heat generation

Since its founding in Japan in 1885, Oriental Motor has been a world leader in motion systems. For over a century we have concentrated on technological advancement and product design improvement — an emphasis evident in the sophisticated devices we market today. Oriental Motor's sales and service network is international, with offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia.  Domestically, ORIENTAL MOTOR U.S.A. CORP. was established in 1978.
