HIGH-ACCELERATION SERVO MOTORS CREATE CABLING CHALLENGES
In automated production machines, faster acceleration and deceleration of motion axes can lead to productivity gains. It’s no wonder that machine builders have started to adopt new low inertia servo motors that offer maximum accelerations up to 5g, compared to less than 3g for conventional servo motors. So what does acceleration have to do with cable? Experience shows 5g represents a tipping point for servo cables. When subject to accelerations of 5g or greater, traditional servo cables can experience forces high enough to shorten their working life dramatically. And keep in mind that rapid deceleration can be just as punishing on the cable as rapid accelerations.
CONNECTORS LOWER WIRING COSTS
If you design or build industrial machines, you probably know all about hardwiring. It remains the most common way to bring power and signal to the machine because it offers a perceived savings in installation costs. But the cost savings are really just a mirage once you factor in the full range of wiring costs. The assumption that hardwiring will minimize wire installation costs turns out to be wrong. Download our white paper to understand the differences between hardwiring and connectorization.
Understand Connector Selection To Avoid Downtime
Power and signal disruptions have many mechanical and electrical causes, everything from forklift accidents to overcurrent conditions. With all the mission-critical electrical connections in a modern plant, downtime from damaged electrical connections is a matter of when not if.
Selecting Cables for VFD Applications
For all their energy savings and process control benefits, variable frequency drive (VFD) systems have a downside too. When these drives fail, they can bring motor-driven industrial processes to a dead stop. To avoid this costly downtime, smart engineers carefully evaluate reliability when configuring a drive system.
