Triple servoamps cut space requirements by up to 90%

04 January, 2017

Schneider Electric has developed a drive system for servomotors that, it claims, could cut the need for space in control cabinets by up to 90% compared to conventional servo amplifiers, as well as reducing energy consumption by up to 40%. It unveiled the Lexium 62 ILD system at the recent SPS IPC Drives exhibition in Germany.

The system uses a single hybrid cable to link triple servo amplifiers to their motors, cutting cabling and installation costs. The IP65-protected system is said to allow motor performance to be varied precisely to suit the load, thus saving energy.

Schneider was also showing a new range of servomotors that match the new amps. The Lexium SH3 40 motors have 40mm flanges and come in a choice of two lengths.
