Beckhoff I/O system is an I/O solution for highly-dynamic positioning tasks
onto the market. The EL7201
servo terminal with resolver interfaces features a compact design, while
offering high servo-performance. The integrated fast control technology, with a field-oriented current and PI speed control, supports highly dynamic positioning tasks. Apart from the
direct connection of motor and resolver, the connection of a motor holding
brake is also possible.
magnet synchronous motors with a rated current of up to 4A can be connected as loads. The monitoring of numerous parameters, such as
overvoltage and undervoltage, overcurrent, terminal temperature or motor load,
offers maximum operational reliability. Modern power semiconductors guarantee
minimum power loss and enable feedback into the DC-Link when braking.
terminal is fully integrated into the Beckhoff automation software TwinCAT,
enabling convenient parameterisation. In the case of third-party masters,
parameterisation takes place via the CAN over EtherCAT profile (CoE).
terminals cover a broad range of positioning tasks: from packaging and assembly
machines to small robots. With the EL7201 servo terminal, the range of servo drives from
Beckhoff becomes even more finely scalable: from the miniature servo drive up
to 200W in the EtherCAT Terminal format to the AX5000 Servo Drive with 118 kW.
Why would the biggest connector company in the world design and build the first fully functional 3D-printed motorcycle? To show TE Connectivity's engineers what the technology can really do in making working load-bearing production parts, and free up their thinking when approaching design problems.
The enhanced ST8 includes new functionality designed to help users accelerate design speed and improve the user’s ability to leverage synchronous technology. The update offers greater flexibility in choice of platform and purchasing options, according to the company.
“How can European standards affect me, especially since I only use machines built in the US?” This is a common question, and one way to answer this is to look at how machine safety is enforced, where the information comes from, and how well you can prove you followed the regulations.
