The Sigma-5 Powerlink from Yaskawa provides a communication profile that meets timing demands for high-performance automation and motion applications
The Powerlink is an add-on board, compatible with Sigma-5 series command option attachable type amplifiers type SGDV which offers a wide range of functions. Powerlink is an open real-time Ethernet network supported by the Ethernet Powerlink Standardisation Group see: http://www.ethernet-powerlink.org The Powerlink network module offers a wide range of functions based on the EPSG DS 301 and the CiA 402 drive profile standards.

Ethernet POWERLINK (EPL) is a communication profile for Real-Time Ethernet (RTE) that extends Ethernet according to the IEEE 802.3 standard with mechanisms to transfer data with predictable timing and precise synchronisation. The communication profile meets timing demands typical for high-performance automation and motion applications. It does not change basic principles of the Fast Ethernet Standard IEEE 802.3 but extends it towards Real-Time Ethernet.

The Module supports many functions including profile position mode, homing mode, interpolated position mode, profile velocity mode and profile torque mode. The communication rate is up to 100Mbps; there are two standard RJ45 connectors and 4 LEDs for status indication.

It conforms to most required standards: EPSG DS 301 specifications, CiA 402 Drive profile specifications, safety standard UL508, material compliance UL94V-0 and RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC. In addition it meets the WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC, Low Voltage Directive 73/23/EEC and EMC Directive 89/336/EEC.
