Beckhoff Automation Space-saving distributed servo drive system

The AMP8000 distributed servo drive system integrates a servo drive directly into a servo motor and features an ultra-compact design. By relocating the power electronics directly into the machine, a control cabinet can house a single coupling module to supply power to multiple servo drives with a single cable via the distribution module. Via EtherCAT P technology, which provides EtherCAT signals and power over one cable, such a coupling module can control as many as five distributed AMP8000 servo drives via an IP67-protected AMP8805 distribution module. Because the system is cascadable, even complex motion systems can be implemented with a simple topology.
