Integrated safety technology

10 August 2016

Enabling advanced safety solutions to be implemented with minimum space requirements, B&R’s compact ACOPOSmotor servo actuator has integrated network-based safety functions certified up to SIL 3 / PL e / Cat 4.

For the encoder system, B&R uses safety encoders with an EnDat 2.2 interface. The digital encoders are resistant to interference and highly precise. Since they are mounted securely and each encoder is checked for adherence to installation guidelines, errors in the connection between encoder and motor shaft can be ruled out. Position data can therefore also be used for the safe absolute position.

ACOPOSmotor units offer IP65-rated protection thanks to their fanless design and oil seal. Daisy chaining considerably reduces the number of cables required. The units are also extremely compact, because the electronics are cooled directly via the motor.
