With the ACOPOS P3, B&R is setting new standards for motion control. This 3-axis servo drive offers a power density of 5 amps per liter, making it one of the most efficient servo drives with integrated safety functions on the market. It also tops the charts with regard to dynamics and precision with an impressive 50 μs sampling time for the entire controller cascade.
-> The ability to use virtual position encoders eliminates the need for a position encoder, cable and evaluation unit in the servo drive while increasing availability at the same time.
-> Thanks to machinery directives in the EU and similar legal regulations in other parts of the world, the safety functions used in automation components are becoming increasingly important. The ACOPOS P3 provides a whole range of safety functions that satisfy SIL 3 / PL e / Cat 4 requirements. The new Safely Limited Torque (SLT) function, for example, monitors a defined torque threshold for violations.
-> Even the most basic automation system can be equipped with a full-fledged safety solution. The SafeLOGIC-X virtual safety controller runs on an ordinary PLC – giving B&R customers the reliability they have come to expect without requiring a dedicated safety controller.
-> The ACOPOS P3 supports the world‘s most common power mains configurations, including TN, TT, IT and corner grounded TN-S systems. In some circumstances, only an additional line filter is needed to meet the necessary regulations. In addition, the ACOPOS P3 satisfies the machinery and equipment manufacturing requirements set forth in EN 55011, CISPR 11 and EN 61800-3(first environment, category C2).
