Fieldbus interfaces

A wide range of fieldbus interfaces enables simple integration in any controls concept.



1. Details

Connection to an upper-level controller can be made via analog, digital, or serial interfaces, fieldbuses, or ETHERNET. The wide range of fieldbus interfaces and protocols makes LinMot servo drives easy to integrate with any controller, whether a PLC, and industrial PC, or a proprietary controller.

LinMot provides customers with extensive functional building blocks and example programs to support trouble-free integration. The functional building blocks can be used to execute functions such as drive parameterization and configuration directly from the controller, in addition to standard motion commands. Complete drive configuration of the associated axis is thus saved in the controller. In case of service or replacement, this makes it possible to automatically detect and parameterize the drive via the bus. This eliminates the need for time-consuming manual configuration of the drives in case of a fault.
