Servostar 700 controller gets single-cable connection

Posted Date: 18th Apr 2018

The Kollmorgen S700 servo controller, available in the UK through INMOCO of Daventry, is now supplied with a single-cable motor connection, as are all Kollmorgen drives.

The benefits of connecting drives using just one cable are obvious in machinery and plant construction: they include faster installation, space savings, reduced inertia, and lower costs to name but a few. Following very positive experiences with the AKD and AKD-N servo drives, Kollmorgen is now also fitting the high performance S700 servo controller with its pioneering single-cable connection technology.

The S700 controller is from the Servostar series and primarily designed to fulfil demanding drive tasks. It can be programmed with a macro language similar to IEC 61131-3 and can integrate with safety technology up to and including SIL3. The S700’s features also include cogging compensation for excellent radial run-out characteristics.

INMOCO’s Gerard Bush explains that Kollmorgen is now able to connect its in-house developed digital resolver SFD or high-resolution Hiperface DSL encoder with a standard motor cable through its single-cable connection technology. “The result is a cost-efficient and slender installation,” he says. “As well as space savings, less cable is needed which reduces the load and inertia during positioning movements.”
