B&R Industrial Automation: Embedded parameter chip
B&R’s embedded parameter chip stores pertinent mechanical and electronic motor data such as serial number, type, parameters, and manufacturer specifications making the entire power transmission system clearly identifiable in the application program.
The drive reads the motor data from the encoder. With this data the encoder automatically determines the current control paramaters to guarantee optimal control of the motor. This reduces manual entry of motor data during commissioning and helps eliminate errors. The chip also supports automatic system configuration. When troubleshooting a drive system, the chip allows users to quickly eliminate the motor as the issue and focus their diagnostic efforts elsewhere.
