Choosing a controller that matches your project is important. You don't want to overspend on a device that is significantly more powerful than you need, but buying something that is not robust enough can be even more costly. By defining your project's number of axes, the desired cycle time (µs), and the complexity of the application, we can recommend the minimum viable controller that is best suited to your KAS project.

This fault is related to the commutation hall effect sensors in the encoder of the motor, and the corresponding wiring in the feedback cable.

The cascaded pressure/volume regulation in S700 ensures compliance with a specified cylinder pressure or flow profile.
