Synchronised Servos

24 April 2009

You’ve seen this kind of display at trade fairs before: spinning wheels from synchronised servo motors, dancing around with stunning precision. So, this was nothing new. But, take another look at this, said Martin Rostan in the EtherCAT stand at Hannover Fair.

It’s a synchronised motion interoperability demonstration for EtherCAT, but with a difference: there are 25 different synchronised axes, using 25 different servo drives supplied by 16 different vendors: AMK, Beckhoff, Baumüller, Control Techniques, Copley Controls, Danaher, ESR Pollmeier, Fuji Electric, Jenaer Antriebstechnik, KEB, Kuhnke, Lenze, LTi, Moog, SEW-Eurodrive, and Stöber Antriebstechnik.

The servo drives filled two cabinets, one on each side of the spinning wheels.
