Designed to reduce machine footprint and control cabinet space requirements, the new space-saving AMP8000 distributed servo drive system from Beckhoff Automation integrates a servo drive directly into a servomotor to relocating the power electronics directly into the machine, with its ultra-requiring the control cabinet to compact design a control cabinet only needs to house a single coupling module in module in order to supply power to multiple servo drives with a single cable. Available in two flange sizes, the AMP8000 distributed servo drive system uses EtherCAT P technology to provide EtherCAT signals and power over one cable to control up to five distributed AMP8000 servo drives to enable implementation of even complex motion systems within a remarkably small footprint.
