In servo systems, power cables that transmit electrical current to the motor run in close proximity to the feedback cables responsible for transmitting position and velocity data. Even with cables encased in protective jackets, magnetic fields generated by power cables can induce faulty feedback signals that cause unwanted motion. By understanding your choices for cable design, you can mitigate electromagnetic interference while reducing setup and commissioning time.

In this session you’ll learn:

  • How Kollmorgen provides servo-ready cables for reliable motion performance and peace of mind
  • Strategies to prevent electromagnetic interference with feedback signals, mitigating a potential cause of unintended motion
  • How to use Kollmorgen’s cable selection resources and information
