Breakout Terminal Board & Interface Cable
Another very useful accessory is the Breakout Screw Terminal Board and interface cable to the CN1 connector on the drive. This accessory makes all the I/O signals from CN1 available for user connection at the screw terminal board. There is a 10 foot limit on the length of the interface cable. This breakout board and interface cable should be contained within your control cabinet. Please consider this accessory to make your interface connections to the drive easy and trouble-free.
The most common cause of start-up problems is faulty cabling. This is why we offer and require factory tested and fully terminated cables for all connections between the drive and motor. We offer motor power cables and motor feedback cables in several standard lengths. We also offer custom cable lengths in one foot increments at the same price per foot as standard length cables. Ordering information for cables is included on each system page. Use the selection chart to select a system page.
Fibre Optic Cables
Fibre optic SERCOS cables are available in plastic and glass for use inside and outside a control cabinet. Plastic fibre optic cables are available in several standard lengths but we also offer custom cable lengths in one-foot increments at the same cost per foot as standard length cables.
A range of regeneration resistors are available for applications that require regeneration capability in excess of the drive´s built-in regeneration resistor. All external regeneration resisters are equipped with built-in thermostats. Please contact our Technical Support Engineers to evaluate your application and any need for external regeneration resistors.
