EtherCAT Networking with Yaskawa Amplifier Performance
Yaskawa engineered SGD7S to provide the latest Sigma-7 SERVOPACK amplifier capabilities for automation systems standardized on EtherCAT industrial networks. Plug-and-play EtherCAT functionality means immediate compatibility, faster refresh rates and minimum system infrastructure for extra cost effectiveness. Yaskawa’s Sigma-7 amplifier technology adds 3.1kHz bandwidth to improve speed and precision. Yaskawa’s advanced set of servo tuning algorithms include world class vibration suppression, ripple and friction compensation, advanced autotuning and tuning-less commissioning right out of the box.
This procedure outlines setting up Fully Closed Loop operation using the SGDV-OFA01A option card and a SigmaLink linear encoder as the external encoder on a rotary ball screw system mounted to a Yaskawa servo. The procedure is described using SigmaWin+ ver. 7.
