Machines must be safe! – This is not just one of the demands of the EU’s Machinery Directive. In order to ensure that machines can be used simply without compromising safety, powerful sensor technology is now used to detect dangerous errors and protect the user. In electric drive technology, high-quality motor feedback systems (MFS) are used for this purpose which reliably determine the speeds and positions of moving axes. Sensors with the Hiperface DSL® (HDSL) interface are particularly advantageous for connecting the motor and drive controller. Since the process data transmission is purely digital, the susceptibility to interference is lower. In addition, the single-cable technology supported by HDSL is significantly more cost-effective to install.
However, to ensure that motor feedback systems and drive controllers from different suppliers can be operated without issues, it is important that the Hiperface DSL® standard is followed precisely during the development of feedback sensors. After all, this is the only way to ensure quality and thus customer satisfaction.
For the introduction of new sensors, manufacturers can now organize for a conformity test to be performed by Brinkmann Electronic Berlin. Sick Stegmann, licensor of the HDSL technology, has authorized this independent development service provider to carry out this procedure.
In addition to conformity testing, as an expert in communications and Hiperface DSL® technology, BEL can also provide support in the implementation, diagnosis and bugfixing of the Hiperface DSL® interface. By establishing the proof of conformity, SICK STEGMANN and Brinkmann Electronic Berlin are boosting the market acceptance of HDSL technology. This gives users the certainty of being able to seamlessly combine HDSL products from different manufacturers.
