"The operator doesn't have to be an engineer who speaks "servo language" to set-up and operate the unit," states Todd Lucich, VP of Sales at Bison Gear. "Within minutes the unit is up and running."

Bison's new, integrated brushless ServoNOW™ servo system for single axis applications was designed to meet basic motion needs by limiting programmability and using simple positioning and speed control applications. This new, state-of-the-art design reduces the amount of time and money spent on overall set-up and installation.
All input and output functions of the ServoNOW™ are programmed into the set-up feature through a simplified indexing type command structure making it able to interface to nearly any logic input and output. Analog inputs can be selected and set-up to control the position or velocity of the system. All set-up and installation can be accomplished with any standard PC with a built-in USB port. Free, downloadable host software called QuickLaunch is available with the package and loads on any Windows PC.
The ServoNOW™ incorporates an inclusive closed loop brushless servo motor with built-in driver, controller, magnetic encoder and 110/230VAC universal power supply all in one complete, compact package. Four programmable digital inputs and outputs, analog I/O (0 to 10VDC or 4 to 20MA, 12 bit) and position resolution of 4096 counts per revolution is included.
There are 5 standard, NEMA 34C face mount models available with varying performance variations from 0-6900 rpm and 0-310 oz-in torque. Models can be customized to meet application specific requirements.
ServoNOW™ is ideal for customers who are users of:
•Speed controlled motors
•Motors using start/stop relays with brakes
•Pneumatic cylinders with control position
•Linear slides and ball screws
•PLC's and simple switch logic or relay logic equipment
There are a multitude of industries which would benefit from the integrated ServoNOW™ servo system. Some of those industries include:
■Peristaltic & Metering Pumps
The new ServoNOW™ products are part of Bison's In-Stock, Instant-Ship (ISIS) program that supports Bison's distribution partners and web customers offering same day shipment for orders received before noon (Central Time).
