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.
