Integrated Motion Axes

Synapticon > Integrated Motion Axes


Reduce cabinet complexity and cost. Simplify engineering and maintenance. The SOMANET solution for Integrated Servo Motors brings the benefits of Synapticon’s SOMANET servo drives into ready-to-use components for advanced machine builders. Highest efficiency enables for minimal derating and high power output, filling a critical gap in the world of integrated servo motors.


The SOMANET solution describes integrated servo motors which are built by various motor manufacturers and automation platform vendors based on SOMANET ultra-compact, high-performance servo drives.

The high level of motion performance, advanced motion control features and disturbance rejection algorithms of SOMANET make these integrated servo motors an option for demanding applications. The motors are compatible with any EtherCAT controller that supports DS402, for example Beckhoff TwinCAT, CODESYS or MOTORCORTEX provided by Synapticon. 

Stop spending time selecting and testing numerous combinations of gears, motors, brakes, encoders and drives. Stop the hassle of cabinet engineering. Meet your turn-key solution for machinery, logistics and AGV/AMR.


Highest power density

Enabling integrated motors from 100W to 1.5kW, the SOMANET solution fills a critical gap in the integrated motor landscape

Minimal derating

Synapticon’s efficiency technologies ensure low heat dissipation, boosts the continuous power and torque output

Simple integration

Prepared mounting and heat management design, engineering guidance as well as connector interface modules provided

Maximum motion performance

Synapticon SOMANET servo drives respond to the highest demand for motion control performance – now available for your integrated motor product


Synapticon´s Integrated Servo Motors can be run with any EtherCAT motion control software that supports the CiA 402 Drive Specification, as for example TwinCAT, CoDeSys or MOTORCORTEX. Commissioning and tuning are done using the extremely easy to use Synapticon OBLAC Drive Tools, that can be installed on PC or are available in the handy OBLAC Drives Box.
