The MR-J4-GF servo amplifier by Mitsubishi Electric Automation has been integrated with safety features of CC-Link IE Field, an open, 1-gigabit industrial Ethernet automation network, facilitating industrial communication.
With these features and the optional MR-D30 card, the servo amplifier meets international safety standards for Category 4 PLe SIL3. The 1-gigabit-per-second data transfer rate is said to provide the speed and capacity for Industry 4.0.
Other features include one-touch tuning and 2.5-kHz speed frequency response to reduce settling time and minimize overshooting. It contains a failure prediction and diagnosis function that monitors and detects age-related changes in machine performance based on its friction and vibrations.
