Motion controllers with CANopen interface

26 June 2013 Computer/Embedded Technology

With a new CANopen interface, Faulhaber has made its complete motion control product range compatible with the preferred field bus for multi-axis applications in automation technology. In addition to the external controllers of the MC 3002, 3003 and 3006 series, the integrated 22 … BX4 CxD, 32xx … BX4 Cx and 3564 … B Cx versions are also available with the new interface.

Measuring only 22 mm in diameter, the brushless DC servo motor solution offers full CANopen functionality in accordance with CiA 402. Operation on higher-level controllers such as PLCs and easy networking via dynamic PDO mapping is beneficial for networked applications in factory automation and industrial machinery.

The standardised protocol with corresponding device profiles enables the synchronous control of several axes in a convenient and reliable manner. The drives on the fieldbus level – the motion controllers and the motors connected to them – can be configured with Motion Manager 5 software.
