The Digitax ST servo drive from Control Techniques, an Emerson Industrial Automation company, is an ultra-compact, feature-rich drive with scalable fieldbus communications capability.
The Digitax ST features two expansion slots that accept optional
snap-in Solution Modules (SMs). Users can install any combination of
SMs to customize the drive to accommodate the fieldbus best suited for
the application requirements. Fieldbus communication can be separated
into Real Time and Non-Real Time categories. The flexibility of the
Digitax ST’s modular design easily accommodates common industrial
fieldbus types and provides scalability as application needs change and
future capabilities are released. Upgrading modules versus replacing an
entire drive provides a cost effective means of updating packaging
systems with minimal downtime.
