Serial configuration cable for servos


General DPN

DPN WEB EXCLUSIVE: Animatics Corp. has introduced the Add-A-Motor serial configuration cable. With the cables and Animatics SmartMotors, the servo system is said to be ready to plug and play.

The molded cable connects SmartMotor to SmartMotor in a daisy-chain configuration for serial operation, thus eliminating the need to create custom, multi-axis cable configurations for each SmartMotor application. The cables are designed to supply dc power and RS-232 communications to multiple SmartMotor 1700 and 2300 Series motors.
Each cable has a female 7-pin SmartMotor 7W2 Combo-D-sub connector on one end and a female 7-pin 7W2 D-sub connector backed by a male 7-pin connector on the other end to transmit and receive data between SmartMotors. The cable on the compact dual connector end is displaced to the side to permit easy placement of the next Add-A-Motor cable. The cables come in four standard lengths: 0.3, 1.0, 3.0, and 7.5 m.
