World’s first IO-Link controlled servo drive

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Festo has launched the CMMO-LK low cost drive controller, claimed to be the world’s first IO-Link controlled servo drive. The CMMO-LK can be connected with any IO-Link master or any Modbus TCP Ethernet port, allowing for system integration across many applications.

There is no need to buy or download specialist software for commissioning; the controller carries its own web server allowing customers to parameterise it with any web browser on any type of computer. The system is claimed to automatically connect to the Festo cloud parameter server to ensure it has the latest parameters for motor, axis and controller.

With features such as safe torque off, integrated inputs for referencing and Ethernet diagnostics, this compact controller offers time and cost saving features. A file is provided with the CMMO-LK to ensure set up allowing machine builders to ‘plug and play’ almost instantly.
