Tue 7th Nov 2017 - Talented all-rounder now acting in unison

Kollmorgen S700 KOLLMORGEN equips its S700 servo controllers with single-cable connection technology
The benefits of connecting drives using just one cable are obvious in machinery and plant construction: they include faster installation, space savings, reduced inertia, and lower costs to name a few. Following very positive experiences with the AKD and AKD-N servo drives, KOLLMORGEN is now also equipping the talented all-rounder S700 with its pioneering single-cable connection technology.
 
The KOLLMORGEN servo controllers from the SERVOSTAR series S700 are primarily designed to fulfill particularly complex drive tasks – with safety technology up to and including SIL3. The devices can be programmed freely with macro support in IEC 61131-3 based language. The S700’s features also include cogging compensation for excellent radial run-out characteristics.
 
KOLLMORGEN is connecting the in-house developed digital resolver SFD or high-resolution Hiperface DSL encoder with one standard motor cable through the single-cable connection technology now available for the S700 controllers. The result is a cost-efficient and slender installation solution which reduces costs while also helping to increase machine performance - starting from space gains to more speed when positioning, as less cable needs to be moved at the same time.
