DRIVE-CLiQ Disclosure for measurement system manufacturers

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The DRIVE-CLiQ interface has been disclosed for measurement system manufacturers. Thus, rotary and linear measurement systems from different manufacturers will be provided with an integrated DRIVE-CLiQ interface and can be directly connected to SINAMICS. New measuring systems from RENISHAW have been certified.

Updated Oct 2nd 2019

The interface conformity of the encoders in the system will be checked through tests at our Support Center and documented through the corresponding certificate.

To round off the system, we offer MOTION-CONNECT signal cables with M12 connectors which are required for encoders with DRIVE-CLiQ interface, see also 60179485.

Various general conditions must be fulfilled before you can operate the encoders on SINAMICS, SINUMERIK und SIMOTION. These general conditions as well as the currently available measurement systems are stated in the attached slide set.

This slide set will be regularly updated if further measurement systems are certified.
