IO-Link provides a platform for sensors to report fault detection, condition monitoring and component identification, and communicate the details throughout the system. IO-Link helps shorten commissioning and reduces troubleshooting and downtime to maximize production availability.
Vibration and noise control for stepper motors has been a focus of machine builders in recent years. Too much vibration can cause missed steps, and minimization of noise can widen applications outside of factory automation. The good news is that recent advances in driver technology can help.
It can be challenging for OEMs, system integrators and distributors to find “invisible noise.” Unwanted EMI and RFI noise can degrade the performance of communication systems and cause false triggering and faulty readings in sensor circuits.
EMI and RFI are types of electric or electronic emission that can degrade, impair or prevent electrical circuit performance. To protect and optimize equipment performance, Enerdoor offers one of the largest ranges of solutions to reduce electromagnetic / radio-frequency interference.
