The SeGMo-Positioning internally monitor data such as motor current, speed and temperature. In the event of an error, the positioning drives output alarms and messages and alert the operating personnel.
The real-time-capable communication and exchange of data between sub-systems are just one step towards full digitalisation. Information on the condition of machines and their components plays a key role in the complete production process.
In addition to monitoring through the PLC, the user can access the SeGMo-System remotely using a web server. The system provides a separate communication channel through which the machine operator receive the relevant data independently of the real-time bus. That allows to protect the runtime-critical plant control system against influences from remote accesses and gives a complete overview of the machine.
The integrated absolute multiturn encoder means the drive is aware of its current position at all times. These limits are not exceeded even if the user makes an incorrect input, protecting the machine from critical situations.
