All relevant mechanical and electrical information and data is stored in the EnDat encoder used for B&R motors. This means that the user does not have to configure settings on the servo drive. As soon as the encoder is connected to the servo drive and the power supply to the electronics is switched on, the motor is automatically identified. The motor sends its nominal parameters and limit parameters to the servo drive. The drive then automatically determines the current limits and current control parameters required for optimal control of the motor. The only things that the user has to optimize are the speed and position controllers. Support for this is provided by the integrated commissioning environment of B&R Automation StudioTM.
In addition to assistance during commissioning, routine service work is also simplified, and motors can be replaced without having to take extra time to set parameters.
