For solar trackers, motion control is a core technology that must be implemented as inexpensively and reliably as possible. In real-world applications, B&R's fully integrated and compact Motion control has proven to be an excellent choice.
For visualization and control tasks on solar trackers, C-Series and T-Seriesdevices are ideal because of their compact construction and customizable front design.
Compact drive technology
A number of options are available in the product portfolio for cost-effective use of drive systems:
X20 system motor drive modules
There are stepper motor modules available that are rated at 1 A or 3 A as well as motor modules with a half-bridge or full-bridge (H-bridge) rated at 3 A or 6 A.
X67 system motor drive modules
Stepper motor modules are available that are rated at 1 A or 3 A as well as motor modules with a full-bridge (H-bridge) rated at 3 A including encoder inputs for the IP67 protection class.
ACOPOSmicro compact drive series for stepper or servo motors
The compact ACOPOSmicro drive system is available for larger drives up to 650 W in servo or stepper motor variants.
All drive technology components are integrated seamlessly into the Automation Studio development tool. Regardless of the drive and motor being used, all functions are available – from single-axis movements to CNC and robotics and an extensive standard technology library.
The Power Panel C-Series and T-Series are available as cost-optimized visualization devices. The C-Series functions as a controller with integrated PLC functionality, and the T-Series is used as a terminal. Both series are available in various display sizes, formats and panel overlay colors.
- These products are characterized by:
- an extremely compact design,
- an optimized border width without compromising the mounting and sealing surface
- and cost-effective wiring.
Custom look and feel
Customer-specific panel overlay variants are available and after the initial prototypes can even be obtained as individual units.
