Decentralized Across All Industries

Ratingen, 20 October, 2015 - During assembly, it's best when everything is attached to one cable. Only then can drive controllers be installed and connected in a space-saving way without time-consuming installation. How such a decentralized structure can look in practice, and why machines from wholly different industries can be connected together so easily, will be demonstrated by KOLLMORGEN at "sps ipc drives" from November 24 to 26, 2015 in Nuremberg, Germany (Hall 3, Stand 648).

Sheet metal forming, packaging technology, beverage filling – these are just three examples of machines that KOLLMORGEN will be "putting on a leash" at sps ipc drives. By doing so, the specialists for servo drive technology and motion control will demonstrate the gains in efficiency that are possible from decentralized solutions during installation alone. Compact in protection class IP65: The decentralized servo technology in the shape of the AKD-N range of controllers has reached a level of maturity which essentially allows them to be employed anywhere. On top of that, KOLLMORGEN will also demonstrate a special edition in Nuremberg with a washdown coating for use in the food industry

New technology for new opportunities: This will soon start a discussion on communicative networking, in terms of being able to connect decentralized drive solutions with the control system level to a largely manufacturer-independent extent. To do this KOLLMORGEN has developed a revolutionary multi-language interface. This allows motion control applications to be connected to all established real-time Ethernet systems in a purely software-based manner.
