TomCat460 Evo

TomCat.The evolution of the species. also at 400VAC

TomCat460 Evo


Redesigned in a big way.

New 32Bit processor.

32-Bit latest generation processor with 32-Bit FPU computing capability. Standard PWM frequency of 10kHz selectable from 2kHz up to 20kHz and a pass band of 1600Hz. 

Optimized firmware.

More responsive and performing thanks to the redesigned firmware to be lean and light. Standard applications for complex positioning, management of electric axes, electronic cams or simply for torque and speed control.
Dedicated to those looking for economy without sacrificing performance.

All-around connectivity.

New field buses to adapt to a wide variety of situations.
From the timeless CANopen to the ever-versatile Modbus, the powerful EtherCAT CoE is added and not least the prevailing ProfiNet to seize the opportunities to work with the Siemens world
TomCat knows no limits.

Motor control: no longer just brushless.

A single servodrive to manage any type of motor. Rotary brushless, linear brushless, asynchronous, spindle, direct current with permanent magnets.
The flexibility you were looking for.

Resolver. The option that was missing.

In addition to reading Incremental Encoders with Hall sensors or SSI Absolute Encoders, we have added the option for reading the Resolver with a resolution of 16Bit.The precision and robustness necessary for harsh working environments. 
The precision and robustness necessary for harsh working environments.

DC Bus. When environment and savings go hand in hand.

TomCat adds the DC Bus to be able to transfer the energy generated during the slowdown from one drive to the other instead of dispersing it in the environment through the braking resistor.
Simple and economic solution for energy saving and environmental protection.

USB 2.0. Comfort makes its way.

Type 2.0 USB port. We chose it because it is fast, but above all because it is comfortable.Enough with serial or USB/Serial converters that drive you crazy. Now to connect to Caliper, our parameterization tool, you just need a simple cable and you're done.
Long live simplicity.

Motor control.

Not just brushless.

TomCat460 Evo is able to indifferently control synchronous (brushless) rotary and linear motors, permanent magnet direct current motors equipped with encoders but also asynchronous/spindle motors in V/F (Volt/Hertz) or FOC (Vector) control with frequencies up to 1200Hz.This will allow you to manage the axes for positioning or interpolation but also to manage any asynchronous spindles for drilling, milling or other high-speed applications.

A truly unique drive with incredible flexibility.

Incremental Encoder.

A main input for reading Incremental Encoders with or without Hall sensors. 5V line drive signal, push-pull or Open Collector. Specific output dedicated to the repetition of the encoder signal.

Absolute Encoder SSI.

The same main input can be used for reading absolute digital encoder : SSI (Bin), BiSS, EnDat with resolution up to 32Bit/turn and 16Bit/multit. 

External Encoder.

A second input is dedicated to reading an external auxiliary incremental encoder, rotative or linear, positioned on the application.

Resolver option.

The same input can be enabled for Resolver reading with 16Bit resolution.
Specific output dedicated to encoder simulation.

Analog References.

In line with tradition.

For traditional motion control through the analog signal +/- 10V and 0 / 10V, TomCat460 Evo is equipped with two 12Bit inputs. An input dedicated to the main speed or torque reference or for reading the pressure transducer.

A second input dedicated to a secondary speed or torque limit or position reference.

Frequency references.

Most loved by PLC users.

For PLC control through frequency and direction control or in CW/CCW frequency, TomCat460 Evo has two inputs that receive up to 2MHz per channel.

The same input also manages any feedback from an external A/B incremental encoder.

Graduated in languages.

With new field buses TomCat240 Evo widens the possibilities of interaction with the world of the most advanced PLC and NC.

EtherCAT CoE the most powerful and versatile real-time protocol for Motion applications with very fast interpolations.
ProfiNet RT/IRT the real-time protocol for dialogue with the most important PLCs and CNCs on the market.
Modbus TCP/IP * the simple and robust Ethernet protocol for 4.0 communication.
CANopen Cia402, the flexibility and economy of an open protocol.
Modbus RTU the robustness of a serial protocol for positioning.

He only misses the word

1 secondary 12 Bit differential analog input.


6 programmable optoisolated PNP / NPN inputs.
3 programmable optoisolated PNP / NPN outputs.
1 optically isolated frequency input.

Simplified wiring

Enough with connectors to be soldered or screwed!
New I / O connectors with spring connection.
Superior resistance to vibrations compared to screw fixing.
Easier to wire than a tin connector.

Becouse your time is precious.

STO Safety.

Integrated and certified.

TomCat460 EVO integrates the Safe Torque-Off (STO) safety function is manufactured and certified by TUV in accordance with IEC EN 61800-5-2, with stop in category 0, and with reference to IEC61508 for SIL3 level.
This makes it possible to eliminate the contactor upstream of the drive, guaranteeing the maximum possible safety.

DC Bus.

Another way to be green.

Unique in its size to have the DC Bus in order to exchange the energy generated by the motor during the slowdown phase with other drives.
Energy is no longer dispersed on a braking resistor but reused by the system for the benefit of the environment and energy savings.

A simple solution to be even greener.

USB 2.0

Comfort makes its way.

TomCat communicates with the PC through the micro USB 2.0 type port.
We chose it because it is fast, but above all because it is comfortable.

Enough with complicated serial converters, now to connect to Caliper, our parameterization tool, just a simple USB cable and you're done.
