B&R Integrated safety technology in a compact unit
The compact Acoposmotor servo actuator is equipped with integrated network-based safety functions. Advanced safety solutions can be implemented with minimal space requirements. The functions are certified to SIL 3/PLe/Cat. 4. The digital safety encoders have an EnDat 2.2 interface and are resistant to interference. Because they are mounted securely and each encoder is checked for adherence to installation guidelines, errors in the connection between encoder and motor shaft can be ruled out. This allows position data to be used for the safe absolute position. The motor units offer IP65-rated protection because of their fanless design and oil seal. Daisy chaining reduces the number of cables required.
