Trends in servo drives: productivity, speed, performance
Increased performance, support for up to 128 axes, and onboard Ethernet are among features in today’s advanced servodrives.
Servodrive and motion control product trends, according to Siemens Industry, include better performance and support for up to 128 axes of motion with one controller. New servodrive features include onboard communications and ability to cover all levels of performance for production machines.
Controllers can offer PLC, motion control, advanced technology functions, and an integrated drive control. Advanced networking capabilities with integrated Ethernet network switch can facilitate different network topologies, such as line, star, or tree structures, without additional external switches.
Graphical software simplifies configuration, programming, testing, and commissioning of applications.
