Introducing Mitsubishi MR-J4-TM Demo Unit

August 19, 2020

RSI has 3D printed and built a demo kit using Mitsubishi MR-J4-TM EtherCAT servo drive for potential customers. Our 60-day evaluation program allows a user to test out the servo demo kits using our RMP EtherCAT motion controller.

Key Benefits

  • CAN application protocol over EtherCAT (COE) – Standard IEC61158 Type12 CAN application protocol over EtherCAT (CoE) and IEC61800-7 CiA402 drive profile provides excellent compatibility with common controllers and easy system integration.
  • One-Touch Auto-Tuning™ – Fast, trouble free servo tuning that really works. Get optimum performance with no tuning experience necessary.
  • High speed update rates – Communication cycles as fast as 250 µs
  • Short settling times – Industry-leading performance with 2.5 kHz speed frequency response
  • High resolution encoders – High speed and accuracy with absolute 4,194,304 pulse/rev encoders
  • Advanced Vibration Suppression Control II™ – Suppress vibration both on the load and the machine base
  • Clean installation – No additional motion controllers or protocol converters are required
  • Machine diagnosis function – Avoid unnecessary downtime due to mechanical component wear and tear

Outstanding Performance

  • Reduce downtime – Vibration Tough Drive™ feature automatically readjusts when a change in machine resonance frequency is detected, reducing wear and tear on mechanical components and maintaining optimal performance. As mechanical components wear, the machine diagnosis function will detect changes in machine parts (ball screw, guide, bearing, belts) and changes in the vibration of the system. The MR Configurator2 software analyzes the data to aid in scheduling preventative maintenance.
  • Improve machine efficiency – The MR-J4 servo drives feature advanced One-Touch Auto-Tuning that sets gains and filters in real-time. Over the life cycle of the machine, continuous tuning optimizes gains to minimize setting time and eliminate overshoot.
  • Improves system performance and efficiency – The MR-J4-TM brings the benefits of its high performance, ease of use, and quality you expect from Mitsubishi Electric. It improves system integration and flexibility with the open industrial real-time and deterministic EtherCAT (CoE) network.
