Inovance Technology Europe recently launched four new products for the European market which includes, the high-performance Easy Series PLC, the GL20 I/O modules, the AC703 IPC motion controllers, and the SV670 servo series. The company also re-presented the MD800 compact AC drive which has never been seen at the SPS show and gave an advanced preview of the SV680 servo drive.
The company offers a complete motion solution package that includes motion controllers, servo drives with EtherCAT and servo motors, HMIs, and LV and MV AC drives. The Easy Series is a high performance, compact, EtherCAT-enabled PLC. The highly compact GL20 I/O modules are 2/3 smaller than Inovance’ s previous generation product and offer a minimum cycle time of 125 microseconds. The AC703 IPC motion controller offers a CODESYS (IEC 61131-3) programming environment, up to 32 axes control, a Webvisu server, EoE support, IIoT capability and safe shut-down (without the need for an additional UPS). Finally, the SV670 single-axis pulse servo drive offers high performance, enhanced functionality, and true flexibility.
The launch happened at an in-person press conference at SPS. At the event, Inovance also reported rapid growth, both globally and in Europe, revealing that global sales have hit $3 billion.
Along with the product launches, the company offered a preview of the SV680 servo drive with advanced functional safety functions - including FSoE - and extremely high performance, and also presented the MD800 AC multidrive at SPS for the first time. While MD800 was launched late last year, it has never been seen at SPS until now due to last year’s cancellation of the show. MD800 is a compact AC multidrive that is designed to answer the call of European OEMs for reduced installation costs and smaller machine cabinets.
During the event, David Bedford Guaus, Strategic Marketing Manager – AC drives and servos, Inovance Technology Europe, said, “With the resources of a $3 billion global corporation behind us, we are investing heavily in Europe for growth. In 2021, we invested 9.4% of revenues, and fully 20% of our global headcount, into R&D. Our product range includes LV and MV AC drives, servos, motion control, PLCs, HMIs, CNCs, 6 axes and SCARA robots.”
