New servo cables address requirements of Hiperface DSL® Communications

Hybrid cable construction

Of all the components that make up an effective servo system, the power and signal cables don’t get much attention. Yet the cabling plays a big role in the system’s performance and lifecycle cost. That role is about to get even bigger, thanks to an emerging digital communications interface for servo systems. Called Hiperface DSL® by SICK, this new communications interface allows power and signal to share a single cable.

This hybrid cable can drastically reduce the installation and maintenance costs associated with servo systems. At the same time, the hybrid cable supports servo performance advantages related to Hiperface DSL’s robust handling of feedback signals, which includes transmission rates up to 9.375 MBaud at lengths up to 100 meters.
