The IndraDrive Mi electronic control mounts directly on the motor and uses the housing to dissipate heat. The integrated assembly provides a space reduction of more than 50 percent compared to traditional servo drives with separate motor, and control and up to 30 percent less than integrated units with the electronics mounted behind the motor. The integrated design concept eliminates the need to replace wear and tear parts such as fans, electrolytic capacitors and relays. With only a single cable to supply energy and communicate control commands via SERCOS, the combined assembly also reduces wiring harness costs. Units connected in series reduce the wiring costs even further. The servo drive integrates more than 100 technology functions, including the integrated Motion Logic system conforming to IEC 61131-3. Motion Logic provides a close coupling between numerical control (NC) and programmable logic control (PLC) functions, so these units offer expanded possibilities for decentralized automation.
