Servo actuators: TPM+ goes DRIVE-CLiQ

(PresseBox) (Igersheim, ) Now that the DRIVE-CLiQ encoder interface has been integrated into the TPM+ product family, WITTENSTEIN motion control GmbH's high-performance servo actuators can also be securely and reliably connected to SIEMENS Sinamics S120 motion control systems.

DRIVE-CLiQ makes an ideal complement to the TPM+ system interfaces already available for resolvers, SinCos, TTL and single or multiturn motor feedback systems with Endat or HIPERFACE®. Thanks to the extended interface portfolio, the TPM+ product family and its "dynamic", "power" and "high torque" variants - not to mention the water-cooled "endurance" - now provide maximum flexibility when transferring parameter and control data between the motor encoders of these servo actuators and a wide range of servo amplifiers.

"Factor S": Integrated functional safety

WITTENSTEIN motion control's TPM+ servo actuators with a DRIVE-CLiQ interface fit seamlessly into the company's "Factor S" philosophy of safety, security and reliability. The encoder systems used here meet the requirements of international standards for functional safety, for instance as described in EN ISO 13849 "Safety of machinery - Safety-related parts of control systems" and EN IEC 62061 "Safety of machinery - Functional safety of safety-related electrical, electronic and programmable electronic control systems". In short, the servo actuators comply with all the safety specifications of servo amplifier manufacturers.
