Add the Servo Motor Option NERSHC-S

Adding the servo motors allow positive applied torque control through recipe settings in the HMI. The closed loop system gives feedback to the controller. Cappers with the servo option utilize a programmable electric cam, which stores container and cap parameters in the controller memory. The values can then be recalled via recipe selection in the HMI.

Servo Motor Benefits:

  • Supports the flexibility of recipe-driven format changes and torque control through the HMI
  • Senses and rejects mis-torqued caps
  • Allows you to document applied torque values

All Servo motors are options, not on the base model.
