    The ∑- Vdelivers the highest Performance in the industry.

    • The best amplifierresponse in the idusty slashes settling time*: Representative value when using a combination of the SGMAV-02 ADA servomottor and SGDV-1R6A SERVOPACK at one time of the moment of inertia ratio.
      Servo adjustment Example:When the ball screw slider was run using a combination of the SGMJV-02ADA servomotor ans SGDV-1R6A SERVOPACK
    • Enhanced vibration suppression Existing functions to minimize vibration have been enhanced,and new ones added,improving tracking and further improving settling time.Vibration and noise during driving have also been cut,along withvibrationat machine edges when stopping
    • Contributing to machine perfomance in conjunction with a medium-inertia motor



    • Small Capacity
      SGMJV Series
    • Low Heating Improved motor constants have reduced both losses and heating.
    • Better Tact Time Instantaneous peak torque has been boosted from 300% to 350%, contributing to shorter tact times
    • Ease of Use Moment of inertia ratio has been doubled in the same motor, reducing the moment of inertia ratio and boosting gain for faster settling
    • Medium Capacity
      SGMGV Series
    • Compact Design Smaller package and about 20% lighter, but with the same rotor moment of inertia as the conventional model. A small encoder connector is applied.
    • Improved Vibration Resistance New coupling delivers typical 5G vibration resistance

    Setup Wizard

    Simple parameter set-up with wizard-aided input.

    Trace Function

    Trace function supports to observe motor and machine condition instantly.

  • Easy to use with latest technologyNew tuning-less Function means no adjestment is needed. Impressive load regulation with strengthened Vibration Suppression Function
    More Details

    Simple Tuning

    Even without servo adjustment and with load changes, you can achieve oscillation-free drive within the allowable load moment of inertia.

    1. 1. There is no limitation in referencetype, friction degree, or machine type. The ∑-V allows stable operation at any time, without setup and saving the parameters.
    2. 2. No tuning required, You can start or stop operation at any time, without setup and saving the parameters.

    * Settling time: 100 to 150 ms level.


    The feedback gain adjustment function has a new automatic feed forward gain adjustment performance. Friction Compensation Function automatically cancels out the effect of friction on machine characteristics.* Settling time: 10 ms level.




    Fine tuning with the up and down key of the digital operator or with SigmaWin+ software can maximize machine performance.

    Settling time: 0 to 4ms level*.

    * Settling time varies depending on machine mechanism and rigidity.
