Advantages resulting from special product features

  • The axis interface bundles PLCopen motion function modules into an easy-to-use interface for drive functionality: less programming code and more powerful commands speed up application development
  • Practical initial parameterization wizard: menu-based drive start-up, including setting of controller parameters for faster hydraulic axis start-up
  • Multi-Ethernet now includes POWERLINK
  • Support for additional positional transducers: analog position transducers (current/voltage), binary SSI encoders, rotary encoders (incremental or SSI)
  • Simple connection to higher-level PLC: new PLC function modules for Siemens S7 (Step7, TIA Portal) and Beckhoff (TwinCat) for drive-controlled positioning
 

Key technical data

  • Connectivity with Sercos, Multi-Ethernet (PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, POWERLINK) and PROFIBUS
  • IEC 61131-3 programming
  • Extended temperature range: –20 °C to +60 °C
  • Extensive hydraulics libraries
  • Scan time: 0.5 ms for force controller/1 ms for positioning controller
  • Actual value detection: 4 analog inputs 1x linear measuring system (SSI, incremental or EnDat 2.2)
