At the SPS/IPC/Drives 2012, Wittenstein Motion Control (Germany) will present the CANopen-capable Simco drive series for electronically commutated (EC) servo motors with up to 500 W continuous power and 1-kW peak power.
DESIGNED WITH IP65 PROTECTION, the amplifiers may be installed in the field at distributed locations, i.e. directly adjacent to the actuators requiring less wiring compared to centrally arranged amplifiers. The operating personnel is guided by an intuitive graphical user interface whenever the machine is started up, diagnosed or serviced. Network integration may be also realized using Ethercat interface. Endat 2.2, Biss C or resolver, STO (safe torque off) function according to SIL 2 (safety integrity level), high-resolution current control and event-logging with a real-time clock for the encoder interfaces are available.
The mechatronic drive specialist with 1500 employees worldwide comprises eight business units with separate subsidiaries for servo gear-heads, servo actuator systems, medical technology, miniature servo units, gearing technology, rotary and linear actuator systems, nano technology and electronic and software components for drive technologies.
