CDHD Servo Drives now support BiSS-C interface

CDHD servo drives operate seamlessly with BiSS-compatible encoders and other devices.

CDHD_BiSSServotronix announces the adoption of the BiSS-C interface on its CDHD family of high-performance servo drives.

An open-source digital interface for sensors and actuators compatible with the universal Serial Synchronous Interface (SSI), BiSS operates synchronously—serially and cyclically—and communicates bi-directionally via two unidirectional lines. The BiSS-C interface corrects for disadvantages related to mode-setting in bidirectional interfaces caused by the interruption of a sensor data stream, particularly detrimental to fast digital control units in motor feedback systems.

Adopting the BiSS protocol enables Servotronix’s CDHD high-performance servo drives to work seamlessly with motors that depend on BiSS. Customers who have already invested in such motors can now take advantage of the high power density, simple commissioning, versatility and cost-effectiveness of Servotronix servo drives.

“We continue to expand the capabilities of our flagship CDHD servo drive family, delivering high-performance, cost-effective options to our customers,” stated Dr. Markus Erlich, Servotronix’s VP of Marketing. “Compliance with an ever-increasing set of interface standards enables our customers to adapt our drives and motion controllers to a growing variety of environments and applications.”
