With ACOPOS P3 B&R sets new standards for motion control. With a power density of 4 amps per liter of space, this innovative system is the most efficient servo drive with integrated safety functions available on the market. Previously unobtainable dynamics and precision: The sampling time is just 50 µs for the entire controller cascade.
More than ever before, machine and system manufacturers are being bombarded with demands for increased productivity and availability. At the same time, pressure is constantly building to reduce the manufacturing costs for production machines. The new servo drive generation from B&R was designed to meet these challenges. Offering a high degree of integration and an extremely fast sampling time of 50 µs, the ACOPOS P3 is opening up entirely new opportunities for virtual sensors.
- 69% smaller footprint
- 50 µs sampling time
- Virtual sensors
- Use anywhere in the world
69% space savings. Compact products represent the future of automation.
The ACOPOS P3 is offered as a 1, 2 or 3-axis drive and covers a power spectrum ranging from 0.6 to 24 kW, or 1.2 to 48 amps. The housing of the three-axis drive is as small as a conventional one-axis drive, making it possible to reduce the amount of space required in the control cabinet by 69%.
The short cycle time of 50 µs for current, speed and position control open up new possibilities for virtual sensor technology. A virtual motor position encoder does away with the need for an encoder, encoder cable and evaluation unit in the servo drive while increasing availability at the same time.
Thanks to machinery directives in the EU and similar legal regulations in other parts of the world, the safety functions in automation components are becoming increasingly important. The ACOPOS P3 provides many safety functions that satisfy SIL 3 / PL e, Category 4 requirements. A completely new function, Safely Limited Torque (SLT), checks whether the maximum permitted torque has been exceeded.
