The D1-N supports rotary servo motors, linear and torque motors and therefore the entire range of HIWIN motor types. The wide range of supported encoder interfaces (digital, analogue 1Vss, EnDat 2.2, resolver) and analogue and digital Hall sensors allow the D1-N to be used in many different ways, especially with linear motors in conjunction with various position measuring systems. External motors with the named encoder interfaces can also be easily controlled with the D1-N.
The D1-N servo drive amplifier supports the Ethernet-based EtherCAT field bus system and CoE (CAN application protocol over EtherCAT). Therefore the drive can be integrated in any EtherCAT master controller which supports this protocol. Furthermore, the D1-N works according to the standardised drive profile CiA 402 and can therefore be easily integrated into the TwinCAT control software of Beckhoff as an NC axis.
Because manufacturers are increasingly focusing on machine safety, the STO (Safe-Torque-Off) safety function has been integrated directly in the D1-N in accordance with IEC 61508: 2010; SIL 3, ISO 13849-1: 2006; PL e (Cat.3) and IEC 62061: 2005; SILcl 3 (all certified by TÜV Nord). In the event of an error, the motor current and therefore the torque on the motor can therefore be safely cut off via the D1-N without having to interrupt the supply voltage on the drive. Elaborate hardware for cutting off the supply voltage is not needed, and even the process of switching back on again is considerably faster and smoother.
