A06B-6079-H106

A06B-6079-H106 Servo Amplifier by FANUC – Product Spotlight

The A06B-6079-H106 is a 1-axis Alpha Servo Amplifier Module that uses a Type A or Type B interface. When installing the module, observe the ambient temperature and output rating requirements. The continuous output rating  or continuous operation period of some amplifiers may fall as ambient temperature increases. If the amplifier is used continuously with an excessive load applied, the amplifier may be damaged. Before operating the amplifier for the first time, mount and adjust the speed and position detectors so that an appropriate waveform is obtained. If this is not done, the motor may not rotate normally or the spindle may fail to stop as desired.

If the motor makes any abnormal noise or vibration during operation, stop operation immediately. If operation is continued, the A06B-6079-H106 could become damaged. Take corrective action before continuing with operation. Be sure to only replace the battery when the servo amplifier is on. If the battery is replaced while the power is turned off, the stored positioning data will be lost. Also ensure that the battery connector is correctly inserted. The cover on the front of the A06B-6079-H106 carries a label indicating the specification code. When mounting a previously removed front cover, take care to mount the correct cover to the right unit.

You can observe an instantaneous motor current value on the A06B-6079-H106 by checking the voltage across a reference voltage check pin and a motor current check pin with an oscilloscope. You cannot use a device such as a multimeter to find the correct values. To check the power supply voltage, use the reference voltage check pin and the power check pin with a multimeter, oscilloscope, or similar. This will tell you the power supply voltage for the control circuit in the amplifier.

The signal ground and frame ground terminals are connected inside the panel. There is risk of electric shock if precautions are not taken. When using the signal ground terminal to connect an external device to the panel, verify that a short circuit loop was not created when you set up the system. Connect the #8 signal ground terminal to remote equipment when the host PLC unit is not isolated. Connect the #8 signal ground terminal to a known reliable ground connection to reduce the risk of damaging the circuit.

When setting up RS-485 communication, the cable diagram for some equipment may require polarization on the terminal side. This terminal does not require any special setting as it handles polarization automatically.

FANUC A06B-6079-H206 – Beyond the User Manual

The FANUC A06B-6079-H206 is a 2-axis servo amplifier module. Its standard dimensions are 380 x 60 x 307 mm. The Status display is a 7-segment LED that indicates the operation status on the module. If the Status display is not on then the power is not turned on, the cable has a power connection, or the module is defective. If the module is defective, replace the fuse or servo amplifier. If there is a single middle line on the display, the control power supply is waiting for the ready signal. If all the outside lines are on, the servo amplifier is ready to operate and the servo motor is supplied with power. If an alarm is issued on the servo amplifier, a value other than “0” and “-” is displayed.

A pin board can be used with the A06B-6079-H206. The use of a check pin board allows you to observe the signals inside the servo amplifier. CN1 and CN2 are wired with a one to one correspondence. The connector pin numbers correspond to the check pin numbers. You can observe an instantaneous motor current value by observing the voltage across a reference voltage check pin and a motor current check pin with an oscilloscope. Note that you cannot use a device as a multimeter to observe the correct values. You can also measure the voltage across a reference voltage (0V) check pin and a power check pin with a multimeter, oscilloscope, or the like to observe the power supply voltage fr the control circuit inside the servo amplifier. If the measured voltage is within 5% relative to the nominal voltage, the measured voltage is considered acceptable.

A special lithium battery can be installed in the A06B-6079-H206. Be sure to install the battery with correct polarity, otherwise it may overheat, blow out, or catch fire. Use the factory-installed protection sockets in the unused connector after installing. This can help prevent the battery from short-circuiting.
