Safety even without encoders: The safe operation of machines often requires safety functions to limit speeds, directions or axis positions. The Drive Controller Combivert F6 from KEB Automation is frequency converter and servo drive in one device.
It is applicable for sensorless and sensor-afflicted control of different motor technologies and offers scalable safety functions directly in the drive. The device variant Pro enables the implementation of sensorless safety. Safe solutions can be implemented, for example, in applications where no safer speed sensor can be installed on the motor. Encoderless safety functions offer cost-effective options for simple motion monitoring in addition to more individual machine concepts. They also reduce the amount of maintenance and servicing required. When designing machine concepts, the integration of the safe fieldbus system "Safety over EtherCAT" (FSoE) plays a central role. Conventional safe wiring can be eliminated.
