Multi-Axis Servo DriveAutomation Machine Building Beckhoff servo drive
Beckhoff AX8000 delivers high-precision positioning and short machine control cycles.
Beckhoff Automation debuted its AX8000 servo drive system, designed to meet high control speed and accuracy requirements. Measuring 223mm high and either 60 or 90mm wide, multi-axis systems feature the company’s One Cable Technology (OCT) and combines FPGA technology with multi-core ARM processors to provide response times of less than 1 µs for current control, as well as velocity control cycle times as low as 16 µs. The series includes two 60mm and two 90mm wide power supply module variants for different worldwide voltage systems: 100 to 230VAC with 20 or 40A for Asia and North America, as well as 400 to 480 VAC with 20 or 40A for Europe and North America. A brake resistor, brake chopper and mains filter are integrated in all four versions.
