ClearPath® - Integrated Servo System

CPM-MCVC-N0564A-RLS_Fan

The ClearPath-MCVC model is used mainly for velocity (speed) control replacing AC induction motors, synchronous motors, DC motors, and more expensive (and non-integrated) servo systems. But it also has a torque mode, as well as the ability to precisely move between two different user-defined positions, so it can replace pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders. In all cases, you get smooth, quiet, bi-directional, and precisely servo-regulated motion in a low-cost, integrated package.

Operating Modes

Ramp to Selected SpeedBy changing digital inputs (from your PLC, switches, etc.), ClearPath will smoothly ramp to one of four preset speeds.
Manual Speed ControlFine control of speed from zero to max speed at the turn of a knob. Remembers your last set speed or resets to zero speed when motor is enabled.
Spin on Power UpJust turn on power and smoothly ramp to your preset speed. For when all you need is reliable, constant speed from a brushless motor, and a bare minimum of wiring. It doesn't get any easier than this.
Variable SpeedConnect a digital waveform (PWM or frequency) from your PLC or other device, and ClearPath will run at a speed proportional to the waveform. (This mode can also be used to make ClearPath a drop-in replacement for a brush motor.)
Variable TorqueApply a variable torque (or force or tension) in proportion to a digital command (PWM or frequency)
Sensor PositioningTrigger ClearPath to move in either direction and it will smoothly ramp up to a chosen speed and stop when it detects a sensor (or switch).
Absolute PositioningTrigger ClearPath to move to one of two preset positions. Perfect for replacing air cylinders where more power and finesse is needed.

ClearPath International Shipping Policies

Teknic ships ClearPath products to a number of selected countries outside of the United States. To see if we currently ship to your country, check the drop-down menu in the “Calculate Shipping Cost” box in the shopping cart or the Country drop-down menus on the Checkout page. Products shipped internationally may take up to two more days to ship due to extra processing time, but we will do our best to ship small quantities within three days.

If your destination country is not available for shipments through our website, and your company expects to purchase more than 320 ClearPath motors per year, you may be able to purchase through Teknic's OEM-direct sales channel. Another alternative may be to purchase through our website using the shipping address of a global freight forwarding service. Please fill out our contact form or call us at +1 585 784 7454 for more information on these other options.

IMPORTANT: Additional charges not included in Teknic's shipping charges
Teknic's international shipping charges include express air transportation, brokerage fees, and clearance entry fees, but your destination country may charge you import duties (tariffs) and/or taxes and other fees for the products you import from Teknic. These charges are not included and must be paid by you upon receipt of your shipment.

Unfortunately, we cannot calculate what your additional charges may be because customs and taxation policies vary widely from country to country. As a general guideline, the European Union duty rate for ClearPath motors is 2.7%; the global average import duty rate is about 4%; rates of 8-12% are not uncommon; and a few countries are higher. For exact details, please contact your destination’s customs office or visit their official website.

The tariff codes for the products available on our website are as follows:

Product TypeHarmonized System (HS) Tariff Code

Where to Enter a VAT (Value Added Tax) Registration Number:
During checkout, you can add "VAT:" followed by your VAT Number on the second address line. If you already have a second line in your address, you can put the VAT Number in the same line after a "/" symbol.

Lead Time/Shipping Info


Can Teknic ship my order in less than 3 days?

Possibly.

Teknic is able to promise that any part number ordered from the web will ship within three business days. We are able to promise this because we keep a stock of semi-finished assemblies. Your order is what triggers the final assembly, full test, and shipment of that specific product. This production method allows Teknic to promise a consistent, short lead time for any one of almost a thousand unique part numbers.

Depending on the exact manufacturing and order details, we may be able to build the order in less than three days. If that's the case, we won't hold off from shipping earlier. We just can't promise to ship anything in less than three business days. (And remember to add the shipping transit time to estimate the actual arrival date of your order.)

Up to 16 axes per
com port
Using low-cost SC Hub boards ($49), create up to 4 "mini-networks" of up to 4 axes each, which can be daisy-chained (distributed or plugged directly into each other without cables) to allow maximum flexibility and minimal wiring.checkcheck
Robust communicationInnovative hardware and communication design allows high command throughput (over 1,000 commands per second) without using noise-sensitive high-speed circuitry or non-deterministic "crash and retry" protocols. All inputs are optically isolated for even more noise immunity.checkcheck
Automatic network configurationNo need for setting DIP switches or programming network addresses. Just power up the system and each axis is automatically addressed based on its position in the network.checkcheck
g-Stop™ anti-vibration move profilesMotion profile sculpting based on patented anti-vibration technology. Allows the fastest possible moves without exciting mechanical resonances in the machine. Easy to configure, and robust operation even as mechanics wear over time. See video demonstration.check
Triggered movesOne or more axes can be configured to start simultaneously upon command or electronic signal for the most precise synchronization requirements.check
Head-tail movesCreate two- or three-part move profiles where the beginning and/or the end of the moves are at a different maximum velocity than the middle part of the moves. This is useful for making fast moves with one or two slower segments (e.g., moving past a camera slowly and then moving to a target quickly, or slowly clamping something at the end of a fast move).check
Asymmetric movesCreate move profiles with different acceleration and deceleration limits. Often, because of friction (or gravity), an axis can decelerate faster than it can accelerate, and this feature allows faster moves in these cases.check
Trigger events at user-defined positionsGet a notification when an axis reaches a certain position (either after the start or before the end of the move) to allow synchronization with other events or processes.check
Positive/Negative torque limitingIndependently limit positive torque and negative torque (typically used in clamping applications).check
Conditional torque limitingAutomatically limit torque (positive and/or negative torque) when an axis is in a certain positional zone, or based on an electrical signal, or when a move completes.check
Attention generationAutomatically generate interrupts based on user-defined events so that you don't have to constantly poll for them. This creates a more responsive and synchronized system.check
Position capturePrecisely capture axis position on-the-fly based on an electronic input.check
