Servo control made easier to integrate
KOLLMORGEN’s single-cable technology is now available for its SERVOSTAR series S700 servo controllers. The single motor feedback and power cable option is said to offer faster, more straightforward and lower-cost installation.
The in-house developed technology is included with the S700 series in combination with the SFD digital resolver or Hiperface DSL encoder options. A single-cable replaces the more traditional separate power and signal leads and dual connectors.
As well as simplified wiring and cost advantages, other benefits are said to include space and weight saving which reduces inertia on moving machinery as well as a lowered spares inventory burden. The fully scalable technology is equally suited to new-build or retrofitted machine automation applications.??KOLLMORGEN’s SERVOSTAR series S700 servo controllers include a plug-in SIL3 safety technology module which is not subject to communications bus limiting factors, and so performs with no loss of time or reaction delay. With macro support in IEC 61131-3 based languages plus EtherCAT and CANopen integrated bus communications, the range suits high-throughput automation where fast and synchronised position control is required with high levels of safety.
