Single-cable technology for servo drives

Kollmorgen Europe : 10 November, 2013  (New Product)
The benefits when connecting servo motors to servo controllers with only a single cable are experienced along the entire value chain. Because encoder signals and motor power are both physically transmitted through the same cable, an interface becomes superfluous for each axis connected. Tangible cost savings are realised by discarding a cable and two connectors.
Single-cable technology for servo drives
Kollmorgen has expanded its range of single-cable motor-drive interconnection options with a new one-piece cable and connector assembly for Hiperface-DSL. Already widely used for many conventional applications with the digital resolver (SFD), this brings many benefits for users of Hiperface-DSL encoder technology.
 
Robust resolver based encoder systems have been proven for several years in many drive systems. More than ten years ago Kollmorgen began pioneering the advance towards the digital resolver, bringing to market the innovation that combines the benefits of a robust analogue technology with the advantages of digital encoder systems. 
 
The advantages of the single-cable technology are clear: as each axis includes both motor power and feedback in a single cable assembly, it removes the need for one cable and two connectors. Thus installation cost are reduced by half - and with the removal of two connections - sources of error also decline.
 
The performance of high-resolution feedback systems is not required for some applications. Here, the Kollmorgen Smart Feedback Device (SFD) offers a digital feedback system that can be used for many common applications. These cost-effective feedback systems offer the further benefit of single-cable technology where high resolution encoder systems are not needed.
