HIPERFACE DSL® for premo servo actuators from Wittenstein Motion control

Free access to diagnostic data


The continuous condition monitoring of electrical drives is growing in prominence. This is because the purely digital HIPERFACE DSL® interface makes it possible to provide status data such as the temperature of servo actuators in a format which can be evaluated by control technology. The fully scalable premo servo actuator platform from WITTENSTEIN motion control GmbH, located at Igersheim, Germany, not only uses the future potential of HIPERFACE DSL®, but also benefits from numerous design and safety advantages.
