Servo motor

Whether your servo application is in industrial automation, robotics, CNC machinery or automated manufacturing, what you really need is a sophisticated, high-quality servo motor capable of top energy efficiency and reliable performance. Leading semiconductor solutions from Infineon's vast portfolio let you have it all: quality, intelligence, efficiency – and the price you demand. Discover what your servo motor can achieve when you choose servo drivers, microcontrollers and more from Infineon. See additional motor control applications here in industrial automation.

A servo motor is made of a compatible motor coupled to a sensor that gives feedback about the position. In addition, it necessitates having a refined controller specifically designed for servo motor use. As a rotary actuator, it enables precise control of the position, velocity and acceleration. A unique characteristic of the servo motor is that it consumes power while rotating to the desired position and then rests upon arrival.
