Offering 30 W/dm³ power density for decentralized positioning tasks, AG05 actuating drives from SİKO are no larger than a 0.33 drinks can. They can easily carry out such tasks as automatic adjustment of formats, stops, tools and valves as well as many other comparable positioning. Flexibly integrated into various machine concepts, the drive requires no additional material for assembly. Start-up is done either at the drive itself or via the bus communication. A two-line display facilitates start-up as well as monitoring of target and actual values during operation. The drive’s hollow stainless steel shaft has a 14 mm diameter. The robust, glass fibre-reinforced plastic housing with smooth surface is resistant to acid and bleaches. The actuating drive is installed directly on the feed and auxiliary axles. In the compact housing, there is a brushless 24 V DC motor with planetary gears, controller, power electronics and integrated field bus interface. As the power supplies for the control and power electronics are separate, various safety concepts can be integrated easily. The workload of the higher-level PLC is substantially alleviated by the integrated regulating electronics. Monitoring functions for temperature, power and contouring errors are also integrated in the drive. The charging status of the battery is continuously monitored so that any necessary change of battery, which can be carried out by the user, is indicated or reported early on. Through the battery buffering of the magnetic measurement system, position deviations are also recorded in a powerless state and repeat referencing is no longer needed.
