Integrated safety technology in a compact unit
B&R servo actuator with advanced safety functions
B&R now offers its compact ACOPOSmotor servo actuator with integrated network-based safety functions. Advanced safety solutions can now be implemented with minimum space requirements. ACOPOSmotor safety functions are certified up to SIL 3 / PL e / Cat 4.
Intelligent encoder system
For the encoder system, B&R uses safety encoders with an EnDat 2.2 interface. The digital encoders are resistant to interference and highly precise. Since they are mounted securely and each encoder is checked for adherence to installation guidelines, errors in the connection between encoder and motor shaft can be ruled out. Position data can therefore also be used for the safe absolute position.
