High-performance servo drive design
The ACOPOS servo drive family is an important component of the complete automation solutions provided by B&R. Industry-specific functions and intuitive tools form the basis for short development times.
An important criteria for the performance of an automation solution is fast and precise reactions to events handled in the application or to immediate changes in the production process. Therefore, ACOPOS servo drives work with very short scan times and communication cycles of 400 µs, which only amount to 50 µs in the control loop.
Outstanding quality, robust and secure
EMC was given special attention to facilitate use in harsh industrial environments. Field tests have been carried out under difficult conditions in addition to the tests defined in the standard. The results confirm the excellent values measured by the testing laboratory and during operation. The necessary filters, which meet CE guidelines, are also integrated in the device.
Using computer-aided models, the thermal behavior of the entire system is pre-calculated based on measured currents and temperatures. This results in maximum performance by taking advantage of the system's full capabilities.
ACOPOS servo drives use the information on the motor's embedded parameter chip, which contains all relevant mechanical and electronic data. The work-intensive and error-prone task of manually setting parameters is no longer necessary and start-up times are substantially reduced. During service, relevant data can be requested and the cause of any problems that may exist can be determined.
The ACOPOS servo family is also available with partially-coated circuit boards. These versions have identical specifications but are more robust in regard to environmental influences such as dust, aggressive vapors or moisture.
Modular and precise with communication options
Further configuration of the ACOPOS servo drive to meet the respective application-specific demands takes place using plug-in modules. Plug-in modules are available to make network connections with other drives, controllers and visualization devices as well as for the connection of encoders, sensors and actuators. Additionally, CPU modules for controller and drive integration are also available for drive-based automation.
