DATE: Thursday, September 11
TIME 3:15 PM – 4:10 PM
ROOM: W-193B

Abstract

With Motion Control being added to all areas and levels of machines, it is becoming common place to see more and more servos in the latest designs.  Increased cost position, both upfront and operational, along with the leapfrog in usability of servos, have been major drives in this adaption outside of the obvious productivity benefits.  In this session we will look at emerging trends revolving around cabling and encoders for servomotors that are leading this innovation.

We will first look at using field replaceable encoders for servomotors which have greatly improved the on-site serviceability.  Next, we will discuss benefits of using digital communications for encoder signals and built-in electronic type plate technology, which has provided plug-and-play commissioning for servo systems.  This discussion would not be complete without exploring the single cable approach for both encoder and motor power, and what this emerging trend will mean for future machine designs.
