Process control expansion modules for servo motors
21 February 2012
JVL has introduced two process control expansion modules for its MAC400 (400W) and MAC3000 (3,000W) motors, which are aimed at process control applications with 4-20mA analogue control signals. The interface consists of a 4-20 mA (12 bit) input for controlling the motor position and a 4-20 mA (12 bit) feed-back output that indicates actual position. Both signals have full galvanic isolation and there is a galvanically isolated digital error output.
The P4/P5 module enables a second motor to function as a slave with a very high degree of signal integrity. After configuring both master and slave motors, their built-in high-speed communications interface ensures that the slave will always follow the master. Should an error arise in either the slave or the master then further movement is stopped in both motors.
Standard M12 connectors (MAC00-P4) for industrial use
Standard M12 and Harting connectors (MAC00-P5) for even higher reliability
