HELUKABEL® announced it has expanded its motor cable product portfolio with the introduction of the new TOPSERV® Hybrid PVC and TOPSERV® Hybrid PUR cables. These cables now allow machine end-users, OEM machine builders, and drive system manufacturers to combine the existing power and feedback cables into a single cable in order to connect the frequency inverter to the motor’s feedback system.
HELUKABEL®’s latest product offering is designed to combine the existing structure of power conductors and break pairs with an encoder cable element. Working alongside encoder industry and drive manufacturing engineers, HELUKABEL®’s cable development team created a revolutionary cable design that replaces one of the traditional brake pairs with an encoder cable. The encoder element serves as the central communication interface between the frequency inverter and the motor-feedback system. The use of an encoder cable allows for enhanced transmission of motor position data and feedback, such as operating temperature.
Combining both the power and data transmission elements into one cable allows HELUKABEL® to minimize the amount of cabling used, which reduces installation/maintenance time and lowers the overall costs for machine end-users, OEM machine builders, and drive system manufacturers.
