Is Servo Motor and Servo the Same Thing?

Servo motor and servo driver are the two main components of a servo system. The servo motor serves as a power source, and the servo driver controls the parameters such as rotational speed, position, and torque of the motor. Let's follow Premier Cable to learn more about it.

Servo Motor


Servo motor is a high-performance motor that has higher torque accuracy, lower inertia, and faster response speed compared to ordinary motors. The servo motor is usually powered by a three-phase AC power supply, and its parameters such as rotational speed, position, and torque can be accurately controlled by a servo driver.


Servo Driver


The servo driver is a controller in the servo system, responsible for converting control signals into control signals of the motor, and controlling parameters such as rotational speed, position, and torque of the motor. Servo drivers usually include modules such as signal acquisition, signal processing, and power amplification, which can achieve accurate control of the motor and ensure the stability and reliability of the system.

Servo motors and servo drives are usually sold as a whole, and can also be customized and assembled according to user needs.

Traditionally, servo systems are called servo. Therefore, servo does not necessarily refer to only servo motors, but may refer to both. There are also individual inertial pointing servo motors.
