Our cyber® power motors combine an outstanding power-to-weight ratio with optimal efficiency

cyber® power motors are high-performance servo motors which are characterized by an outstanding power-to-weight ratio and optimal efficiency.

When throughput matters most, the ability of servo motors to accelerate faster is often the limiting factor. Our cyber® power motors can be designed with an ultra-low rotor inertia, which allows for much faster acceleration rates than traditional servo motors. The position, speed and temperature of the motors can be detected at any time in combination with a multiturn absolute encoder and a temperature sensor.
