The integrated features correspond to safety level Cat 3/PL d, according to EN ISO 13849-1:2015. The I/O terminal form-factor promotes space-saving, cost-effective motion solutions via advanced servo drive technology with built-in safety functionality and One Cable Technology (OCT), which combines power and feedback signals to servomotors into one standard cable. In addition, two-channel shut-off with corresponding contactors in the motor cable provides a considerable reduction in cabling effort, space requirements and cost – a single cable connects the TwinSAFE safety output terminal (e.g. EL2904) and the STO input of the servo terminal. In addition, the OCT solution minimizes cable costs and space needed for motor connections. The EL7201-9014 variant comes in a 12 mm terminal housing and supplies an output current of up to 2.8 Arms, while the 24 mm EL7211-9014 version can supply a maximum of 4.5 Arms. Both are designed to power servomotors from the company’s AM8100 series, and can automatically read integrated electronic type plate of the motors, simplifying machine commissioning.
