8CVI - distributed inverter
Drive solutions that are matched perfectly to the application are essential to keep machines and systems competitive. That's why directly integrating inverters in the immediate environment of the actuator – without the need for additional accompanying measures – represents an ideal situation. With the new ACOPOSremote drive system, B&R is now accommodating this wish. This architecture offers many different advantages when it comes to machine configuration.
The ideal topology
One of the most substantial advantages has to do with the hybrid cabling between the inverters themselves. Simply connecting ACOPOSremote drive modules together in a line – the "daisy chain" wiring scheme – results in an uncomplicated and flexible machine architecture where energy is passed from one drive module to the next.
All modules in the ACOPOSremote product line are designed with IP65 protection, which makes it possible to mount them directly on the machine. The control cabinet then only has to contain the power supply, high-powered inverter modules and other necessary electrical switching devices. The result is a much easier implementation of modular machine architectures. When optional machine functions are required, they can easily be connected – with the requisite dimensioning of the power supply – to the machine's main line using hybrid cables.
Free motor selection
Because the inverter is separate from the motor, the user is free to select the actuator best suited to his drive solution. This type of installation is particularly well suited for the increasingly prevalent linear and torque motors. It prevents the properties of the motor from being negatively influenced, and the maximum possible dynamics remain available throughout.
Homogeneous and compatible
ACOPOSremote drive systems offer the well-known functionality of the ACOPOSmulti drive family and can therefore be integrated homogeneously into a drive solution.
Optimal machine and system configurations are based on the ACOPOSremote – the ideal enhancement for modular drive solutions that require the highest levels of performance and flexibility.
