Motor ID? It's on the Chip

An embedded parameter chip has been added to the vendor’s family of servo, synchronous and torque motors.

This integrated chip stores pertinent mechanical and electronic motor data such as serial number, type, parameters and manufacturer specifications, making the entire power transmission system clearly identifiable in the application program. The drive reads the motor data from the encoder. With this data, the encoder automatically determines the current control parameters for optimal control of the motor, substantially reducing the time and resources required for manual entry of motor data during commissioning. The chip supports automatic system configuration. Machine builders and end-users can field-swap motors of varying performance without adjusting their program file or drive configuration.
