SGDM-04ADA Wiring Configuration

There are a few precautions to take before putting your SGDM-04ADA into operation. Firstly, never connect a 3-phase power supply to the U, V, or W output terminals as this could result in injury or fire. It is also crucial that users never touch the power terminals on their Servopack for at least 5 minutes after turning the power Off since high voltages could still be present. One should also install the battery at either the host controller or the Servopack of the encoder. If both batteries are installed simultaneously, there will be a loop circuit between the batteries.

A06B-6087-H130 Configuration
A06B-6087-H130 Configuration

Always install the circuit breakers, magnetic contactor, and AC reactor on your A06B-6087-H130. Be sure to use the correct breakers as specified in the FANUC manual. To protect the module from lightning surge voltages, install a lightning surge protector across each pair of power lines and across each power line and the grounding line at the power inlet of the magnetics cabinet. Always connect the control power supply cable to the CX1A. If it is connected to the CX1B, fuses inside the module could blow.  If you are using two power supply modules, the magnetic contactors and AC reactors cannot be shared – they each have ratings that matches each power supply module. However, the lightning surge protector can be shared. Make the wires used as short as possible if you do this.

Notes on Cleaning the A06B-6087-H130 Fan and Heat Sink:

  1. A dirty heat sink or fan results in reduced semiconductor cooling efficiency, which degrades reliability. Periodic cleaning is necessary.
  2. using the compressed air for cleaning scatters the dust. A deposit of conductive dust on the amplifier for peripheral equipment will result in failure.
  3. To clean the heat sink, do so only after turning the power off and ensuring that the heat sink has cooled to room temperature. The heat sink becomes extremely hot, such that touching it during operation or immediately after power-off is likely to cause a burn. Be extremely careful when touching the heat sink.

6SL3244-0BB12-1FA0

6SL3244-0BB12-1FA0: Beyond the User Manual

The 6SL3244-0BB12-1FA0 is a Sinamics G120 Control Unit. This unit features a Safe Torque Off (STO) function that prevents energy from being supplied to the motor, which can generate torque. This function can be used in a number of ways. It can be used with an Emergency Stop button, so that when it is pressed, the stationary motor does not start. It can also be used with a central Emergency Stop button to ensure that several drives cannot unintentionally start. The module functions by recognizing the selection of STO via a fail-safe input or via the safe communication PROFIsafe. The converter then safely switches off the torque of the connected motor. If no motor brake is present, the motor coasts to a standstill. If a motor holding brake is in use, the converter closes the brake immediately after selecting STO.

The Safe Stop 1 (SS1) is another function of the 6SL3244-0BB12-1FA0. The SS1 function brakes the motor, monitors the magnitude of the motor deceleration within defined limits and initiates the STO function if the motor speed falls below a specified value. The SS1 function brakes the motor, and monitors its absolute speed. If the motor speed is low enough, the converter safely switches off the motor torque using STO.

The third function of the 6SL3244-0BB12-1FA0 is Safely Limited Speed (SLS). The SLS function prevents the motor from exceeding the defined speed limit. SLS monitors the absolute value of the actual speed and limits the speed to values below the monitoring threshold. The Safe Direction Function (SDI) prevents the motor shaft from moving in the wrong direction. It does this by monitoring the actual direction of rotation, and also limits the speed to values in the permissible direction. The Safe Speed Monitor (SSM) function supplies a safe output signal to indicate whether the motor speed lies below a defined limit. SSM cannot be selected or deselected, it is only active when monitoring velocity is > 0 for SSM. The converter then compares the load speed with the speed limit and signals if the limit value has fallen below the high-level control.
