Multi-Axis Controller b maXX 5800

Compact and Individual Control

With the new multi-axis controller b maXX 5800, Baumüller, Nuremberg, Germany, provides a compact solution for controlling up to six drive axes, e.g., for robot and handling applications.

The combination of multi-axis controllers with a single-cable solution offers customers savings in terms of start-up costs, space requirements and weight (© Baumüller)

The new controller can be configured individually and fully flexibly. This means that users can freely combine axis powers in the controller. They can also integrate the exactly right axis power for every single axis. The result is a device that meets the requirements of their applications perfectly. As part of the b maXX 5000 family, the b maXX 5800 is fully compatible with the modular systems made by Baumüller. Baumüller thus offers an optimal solution for applications that require a particularly compact platform.

The combination of six independently controllable axes into one controller enables even faster communication in the system than with separate axis units. Downtimes caused by field bus communication are omitted and gantry axes, for example, can be calculated within one CPU. The combination also reduces wiring costs, as only one field bus connection is required for all axes. Another advantage consists of the safety functions of the multi-axis controller. Every axis unit can be equipped with different safety functions. Following the implemented basic STO function, higher security functions are already being executed.

The multi-axis controller b maXX 5800 will be seen with a single-cable solution on the Hannover Messe 2017. Different from classic wiring that always requires an encoder and motor cable, Baumüller enables simpler and less error-prone wiring with the combination of signal cable and power supply, which means that the commissioning effort and thus costs can be lowered. Furthermore, the single-cable solution requires less space – the cable ducts are e.g. smaller – offers more flexibility during machine design, and requires less wiring time.
