The benefits of connecting drives using just one cable are obvious in machinery and plant construction: they include faster installation, space savings, reduced inertia, and lower costs to name a few. Following positive experiences with the AKD and AKD-N servo drives, KOLLMORGEN has now equipped the S700 with its single-cable connection technology.
The KOLLMORGEN servo controllers from the SERVOSTAR series S700 are primarily designed to fulfill particularly complex drive tasks – with safety technology up to and including SIL3.
The devices can be programmed freely with macro support in IEC 61131-3 based language.
The S700’s features also include cogging compensation for radial run-out characteristics.
KOLLMORGEN is connecting the in-house developed digital resolver SFD or high-resolution Hiperface DSL encoder with one standard motor cable through the single-cable connection technology now available for the S700 controllers.
The result is a cost-efficient and slender installation solution which reduces costs while also helping to increase machine performance - starting from space gains to more speed when positioning, as less cable needs to be moved at the same time.
