It saves costs, requires less space, is easy to implement and offers the highest level of investment and machine safety at the same time. In the future, a smaller servo drive will also be possible in many applications. Reducing the drag chain Only one cable between the inverter and motor cuts the drag chain in half and enables rapid cabling and fewer sources of error. Efficient installation The reduced number of components simplifies installation and saves time and personnel costs for commissioning and maintenance.

When launched six years ago, the interface made a single cable servomotor a reliable proposition for the very first time. Following the rapid adoption of the revolutionary One Cable Technology, SICK has decided that the interface it invented will now be available as an open protocol.
In turn, OEM machine builders have been able to optimise costs and space utilisation in their machines. The industry is surely set to see yet more extensive machine development and innovation and, in future, the interfaces needed to support servo drives will be minimised. The digital interface meets all the requirements for the condition-oriented maintenance of machines in the Industry 4.
Hybrid cables that combine both servo and encoder elements are becoming increasingly popular. Signals coming from other sensors that are integrated into the digital motor feedback protocol are also transferred.
Special processes and the application of pulse transformers ensure that the encoder signal is decoupled from disturbances created by the motor power cable cores. Motor specifications, serial numbers and part numbers, and other data are stored here and used to adjust the drive to the motor parameters automatically and when servicing is required.
The company, which was founded in by Dr Erwin Sick and has its headquarters in Waldkirch im Breisgau near Freiburg in Germany, is among the technology market leaders.
