Compax3 digital servo drives have been enabled with Ethernet Powerlink (EPL) motionbus technology. Ethernet Powerlink is a high-speed, digital motionbus solution connecting a motion controller to multiple drives and I/O points using standard Ethernet networking hardware. This centralized, real-time communication system for automation and control makes Ethernet deterministic for real-time industrial applications and decreases installation time for machine builders.
Parker Electromechanical Automation
707/584-2417 servo motor LIMITED HEAT
SLM series brushless servo motor line features Exlar's T-LAM segmented motor stator design, where each segment contains individual phase wiring and thus limits heat generation. Three frame sizes, 60, 90 and 115 mm, are offered with continuous torque ratings of 7.6-176 in.-lb and speeds ranging 3,000-5,000 rpm. One, two and three stack motor stators are available as standard. Standard features include IP65 sealing, stainless-steel shaft, MS connectors, feedback configuration, epoxy coating and 115, 230 and 460 Vrms motor voltages.
