B&R's BiSS Interface for ACOPOS Servo Drives

B&R's BiSS Interface for ACOPOS Servo Drives

B&R has extended its range of plug-in modules for the ACOPOS servo drive family to include a module for evaluating BiSS encoders. The BiSS fully digital bidirectional sensor interface is an open and license-free communication standard that allows sensor data to be read synchronously, securely and quickly. The BiSS interface is characterized by a high transfer rate and reliable error detection.

ACOPOS is an intelligent servo drive that increases production volume, reduces production cycles and improves quality with greater precision. With ACOPOS, B&R offers bus-capable servo drives for machine manufacturing in the power range from 400W to 64 kW. With Ethernet POWERLINK, it is possible to operate up to 240 axes on one line using the same network.

Highlights of the BiSS interface include bidirectional communication, secure data transfer, digitization right on the sensor and error detection.
