ClearPath® - Integrated Servo System


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.

Motion & I/O Controllers Compatible with ClearPath Servos

Control your ClearPath-MC servo systems with a ClearCore or ClearLink Motion & I/O Controller. ClearCore is a C++ programmable controller for general-purpose machine control, while ClearLink adds motion and I/O capability to any EtherNet/IP-compatible PLC.

With either controller you can coordinate up to four ClearPath-MC motors per controller. You can also control 13 software-configurable, analog and digital I/O points (up to 24VDC). Both controllers can be networked to control larger systems with more motors, and you can use I/O expansion modules to increase the I/O count.

ClearCore — C++ Programmable Controller

AC Blower Kit

Blower Kit

Blower Kit
Part Number: BLOWER-1P230V
Connector: Screw Terminal Block
Length: Adds 2.12 in to motor length (see manual/3D models for specifics)
Input Power: Single-phase 190-230 VAC
Weight: 2.0 lbs

This blower kit (AC powered fan and shroud) provides a significant increase in continuous torque for certain AC-input (integral hp) ClearPath motors. Motor part numbers shown with a “_fan” after them show the increased specifications using this blower. Note that this kit is not IP rated for dust or liquid protection, and needs AC wiring separate from the motor. For wiring and installation instructions, refer to the user manual: AC Input, Integral Horsepower ClearPath Motors
