The BXT motor family, comprising brushless DC-motors with especially short design, was expanded with the diameter-complaint IEF3-4096 magnetic encoder. With just 6.2mm of additional length, the motor/encoder units also remain extremely short. In addition, the encoder is fully integrated in the robust motor housing.
In this flat design, the IEF3-4096 offers three channels with index function and a high resolution of up to 4096 lines per revolution. Furthermore, a variant with line driver is available with the IEF3-4096 L. The encoder can be combined with the 2214…BXT H, 3216…BXT H and 4221…BXT H housed BXT motors.
The combination of the BXT motors with the IEF3-4096 encoder is the ideal solution if it is necessary to precisely position in a constrained space and high torques are also required. Typical applications are found in robotics, medical technology, laboratory automation and industrial automation. The encoder is connected with a ribbon cable; suitable connectors are available.
The advantages at aglance:
- Short design, since fully integrated
- Index function and high resolution
- Line Driver available
- For precise positioning with high torque in constrained spaces
Embedded systems grow more intelligent
Interface becomes International Standard
E-SOL, a developer of real-time embedded software solutions, today announced that SHIM has been formalized as IEEE Std 2804-2019, the first such standard to be formulated by the IEEE Computer Society/Design Automation/Software-Hardware Interface for Multi-many-core Working Group (IEEE C/DA/SHIM WG), which was established in February of last year within the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The Multi-many-core Working Group’s role was to work on the standardization of hardware architecture descriptions from the standpoint of software design. Masaki Gondo, eSOL’s CTO and Technology Headquarters GM, played a central role in formulating the standard, serving as working group chair and making continuous contributions that resulted in the standard being issued less than one year after the working group got underway, an extraordinarily short time for an IEEE standard.
The IEEE C/DA/SHIM WG was established in February 2019 as a working group for the standardization of hardware architecture descriptions from the standpoint of software design within the Design Automation Standards Committee of the IEEE Computer Society, one of the 39 separate societies within the IEEE. This working group is in charge of defining descriptive standards of architecture from the standpoint of software design for Software-Hardware Interface for Multi-many core (SHIM), as well as providing XML schemas to abstract the key hardware properties that are critical to enabling multi-many-core tools. The XML interface will assist in reducing costs for supporting new multi-many-core hardware. This is expected to spur development of new and innovative multi-many-core tools for building an ecosystem of multi-many-core technology.
Easy machine validation
Guided safety acceptance test for frequency converters
With Sinamics Startdrive commissioning software, Siemens supports machine builders in the validation of safety functions for Sinamics frequency converters with a guided acceptance test. With Sinamics Startdrive, Siemens offers a tool for the integration of drive hardware into the TIA Portal engineering framework. The integrated guided acceptance test for safety functions is available for Sinamics G and S series frequency converters and complies with EN ISO 13849-2 and IEC 62061.
The safety acceptance test is extremely user-friendly. A wizard guides the user step by step through the acceptance process and checks whether the safety functions have been parameterized correctly and executed correctly in the relevant application. For documentation purposes, a standard-compliant acceptance report is then created automatically. With the safety acceptance test integrated in Sinamics Startdrive, Siemens helps machine builders to carry out the legally required validation of safety functions easily and safely.
