What makes the Moog Animatics SmartMotor™ by far the most powerful integrated motor in the industry is its unique ability to control an entire machine. The SmartMotor is not just a product; it is a complete motion control system and a byproduct of an innovative design philosophy. The unsurpassed programming ease, networking capability, highly flexible and expandable I/O, and high power density servo performance is exactly what you should expect from the pioneer and recognized global leader of truly integrated motion control.The simplicity and ease of use goes beyond just “compactness;” it results in overall reduced machine development time (shortening time-to-market), lower total machine cost, greater field reliability, and simplified machine design and build time, eliminating heavy procurement and support activities.


The Class 6 Industrial Ethernet SmartMotorTM, which is available in both standard servo (shown) and hybrid servo versions, represents the next step in the evolution of the SmartMotor integrated motor design. The Class 6 motor lineup includes EtherCAT® (EEC option), PROFINET® (EPN option), and EtherNet/IPTM (EIP option) versions.
These motors are designed for maximum performance and connectivity. They incorporate a high-end, high-speed processor for exceptional performance, data update rates are as fast as 1 millisecond. There are dual industrial Ethernet ports onboard (no hub or switch required), as well as connections for RS-485 and USB. Additionally, they provide plenty of I/O, with the option to add more through an external expander, for easy integration into any system.


  • Onboard controls allow for distributed controls across the machine

  • Simplify wiring, reduce cost through the onboard dual-port Ethernet switch

  • Fieldbus communication through EtherCAT®, PROFINET® or EtherNet/IP™

  • Supports Combitronic™, the parallel-processing system, over EtherNet/IP™

  • Easily access SmartMotor™ programmable autonomous control features in slave mode, which allows special user-programmed functions

  • Optionally communicate with the motor through the RS-485 half-duplex port, which provides access as a Modbus Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) Slave
