Automation for Antenna Control Systems

An interesting application that uses nearly all KEB Automation products is an Antenna control system.   KEB is best suited for difficult and demanding applications and this one is no different.  First, the antenna application demands high motion control performance. Antennas are used to track satellites and require precise and dynamic positioning capability. This puts demands on both the control and mechanical system.  The mechanical system must provide low backlash and be able to withstand high peak forces in the case of wind gusts. The second reason this is a difficult application is because of the extreme environments the Antennas are...

Internal positioning capabilities of KEB VFDs

This is an introduction and overview of KEB’s Internal Positioning Module™ (IPM) that is built-in to all KEB’s closed loop VFDs and servo drives. This is part of our ongoing series on motion control basics. Historically, motion control applications required a central controller to calculate the movement profile and then command it from the controller to the drive or “amplifier”. For complex coordinated motion, this is the most effective way to design a control system. But in the case of single-axis or non-coordinated positioning applications like a rotary wheel or crane – there is a better option. …in the case...

Product Lifecycle Management for Automation Components

On March 11, 2011 there was a 9.0 magnitude earthquake about 40 miles east of Japan.  The earthquake set off a chain reaction including a tsunami and what became known as the Fukushima disaster.  As a result of the Fukushima disaster, many chip fabrication facilities located in Japan went offline.  Even after the disaster was contained and life continued, many of those chip fabrication facilities did not continue to manufacture the older chipsets.  Instead, they chose to focus on producing the next generation chips rather than retool and continue making the old.  Very abruptly, this sequence of events spelled the...

KEB S6 Servo Drive – Start-up procedure

Starting a Motor in 10 Steps This is how to quickly and effectively start-up a servo motor using our S6-K drive. Utilizing the programming Wizards in KEB’s COMBIVIS 6 software, we can break down the process into 10 simple steps. In this blog post specifically, we will be highlighting the startup of a KEB Dynamic Line III servo motor utilizing closed-loop control with encoder feedback.  The general process will be similar for other motor types. What do I need to get started? Closed-loop control with encoder feedback is a VFD control method that utilizes measured speed feedback through an encoder...

How a 3 Phase AC Induction Motor Works

This article and video will focus on the basics of a 3 phase AC induction motor, one of today’s most common types of industrial electric motors. This overview will explain what 3 phase power is, how Faraday’s law works, understanding the main components of an induction motor, and the effect of the number of stator poles on the rated speed and torque of a motor. You can also watch the video below for an overview of 3 phase AC induction motors. What is 3 Phase Power? The first concept we need to understand about a 3 phase induction motor is...
