B&R’s ACOPOS P3 line offers servo drive with Safely Limited Torque function.
B&R unveiled its ACOPOS P3 servo drive available with safety function Safely Limited Torque (SLT) which monitors torque up to SIL 2 / PL d. The torque is limited to the configured maximum value with the aid of current measurement integrated directly in the drive system. The maximum fault detection time is 8ms. In addition to providing safety to operators, SLT can also be used as a protective measure against overloading drive axes and brakes. According to the company, this allows for the use of less expensive mechanical components since there is no need to account for torque spikes.
