SmartMotor servos bring integrated benefits to wet environments 

Animatics' new harsh environment-rated SmartMotor servos offer IP65 ratings with the convenience of a smaller frame size, NEMA23 and NEMA34, for compact applications. The sturdy design and thicker motor casing provides protection and durability, and therefore, any factory process using wash-down techniques or wet processing environments can benefit from the easily programmable SmartMotor and its unique features such as Combitronic IP Smartmotorscommunication protocol and stand alone linear interpolation.
