Servo Drive Safety System

Feb. 22, 2011
The company announces TÜV Rheinland certification for its ACOPOSmulti fully-digital, servo drive safety system.
Certified in February 2010, the relay-free SafeMC safety circuit automatically monitors how the motor responds to instructions from the servo drive. This is executed by using fully digital encoders that are certified according to EN ISO 13849. The electronics are integrated directly on the drive to avoid increasing response times.Programming safety functions for devices with SafeMC is done in the standard development environment using the company's automation studio. Other features include compatibility with the open network-based safety standard, openSAFETY and autonomous configuration of the components and the embedded parameter chip allow quicker configuration during service work, the company says.
