Servos on Firewire

Rochester, N.Y. —ServoWire Drive Network now uses IEEE-1394 (developed by Apple Computer and called Firewire) to create a 200 Mbps digital network for servodrives. New axis modules with a ServoWire interface connect to an Orion PC-based controller. Eight drives and motors can be controlled by a single ServoWire module at loop update rates of up to 2 kHz.

Rochester, N.Y. —ServoWire Drive Network now uses IEEE-1394 (developed by Apple Computer and called Firewire) to create a 200 Mbps digital network for servodrives. New axis modules with a ServoWire interface connect to an Orion PC-based controller. Eight drives and motors can be controlled by a single ServoWire module at loop update rates of up to 2 kHz. Four axes can be controlled at up to 4 kHz updates. ServoWire drives offer I/O capability for high-speed sensors and programmable limit switches. Analog I/O devices are also accepted. ServoWire uses digital torque mode to eliminate manual drive set up. A single ServoWire drive can be configured to handle a range of compatible servo-motors.
