Isolation

For safety, servo drives that derive their power from an AC outlet must have isolation between the power ground and signal ground.

  • In addition to increased safety, isolation also helps with noise issues by reducing the possibility of ground loops

ADVANCED Motion Controls' Capabilities

  • All drives with AC input have built-in isolation
  • Most DC input drives rated to over 100 VDC are also isolated
  • Isolation for a 230VAC / 400 VDC drive is typically 2.2 kV
  • Drives with 4 kV of isolation have been delivered for medical applications
