Imbedded parameter chip
The embedded parameter chip stores pertinent mechanical and electronic motor data for servo, synchronous and torque motors. Stored data includes such information as serial number, type, parameters and manufacturer specifications, making the entire power transmission system clearly identifiable in the application program.
The drive reads the motor data from the encoder. With this data the encoder automatically determines the current control parameters to guarantee optimal control of the motor. This reduces the time and resources required for manual entry of motor data during commissioning. Another advantage of the embedded parameter chip is that it supports automatic system configuration. Machine builders and end users can seamlessly field swap motors of varying performance without adjusting their program file or drive configuration.
