Class 6 SmartMotor™

Smart Choice

From just £774

Ahead of the class

The new Class 6 Moog Animatics Smartmotors are the next generation of integrated servo motor technology.

An entire servo control system integrated into a single compact solution, now with support for Standard Industrial Ethernet protocols including EtherCAT, PROFINET and soon EtherNet/IP.


SmartMotor™ is a highly programmable, integrated servo motor system that is integrated with a motor, an encoder, an amplifier, a controller, RS232/RS485 communication, and IOs.


Class 6 SmartMotors have a new powerful processor that operates at nearly twice the processor speed of Class 5. The PID rate is fixed at 62.5µs with 64K User program memory (twice that of prior Class 5) and larger Cam point memory space for cam tables to >3K points.


These SmartMotors are able to support Standard Industrial Ethernet protocols including: EtherCATand PROFINET. Able to support both standard and high pole count commutation, these products deliver fully closed-loop PID control. Class 6 also features a dedicated high current brake output control.

The future of automation is here.

The SmartMotor looks great, it's really quiet and saves us a lot of space by removing the need for other bulky components.
