Servo terminal supports One Cable Technology equipped AM8000 motors
The servo terminals from the EL7201 series for the Beckhoff EtherCAT I/O system integrate a complete servo amplifier for motors up to 200 W in a standard HD terminal housing. A new advancement in this area, the EL7201-0010 version supports the ‘One Cable Technology’ (OCT) equipped on the AM8000 servomotor series instead of the traditional resolver interface. OCT combines power and feedback signals in one standard motor cable. Material and commissioning costs can be significantly lowered as a result.
