To prevent interference, communication between the Motor and Controller takes place via two separate cables: The orange Power Cable feeds power to the Motor, while the green Data Cable is reserved for data transfer. In addition to colour coding, distinct connectors ensure cables are not connected to the wrong terminals.
All cables are available in standard lengths of 5 and 10 metres. Data Cables feature EMC shielding. When selecting Power Cables, it is important to choose the correct type of cable for the load involved. The connectors make the separate types of cable unmistakeable and ensure they are not connected to the wrong terminal.
Note: If you use item MotionDesigner® to configure a turnkey system, the software automatically selects the right Cable.
