SGD7S EtherCAT with FSoE




SGD7S EtherCAT FSoE - Overview

FSoE Amplifier Features

  • FailSafe over EtherCAT (FSoE) integrated network safety
  • 16 Supported safety functions including Safe Torque Off (STO), Safe Limited Speed (SLS), and Safe Limited Acceleration (SLA) are accessible when using the ASM7 Safety Option Module
  • Certified up to Safety Integrity Level 3 (defined in ISO 62061) which is equivalent to Performance Level E (defined in EN ISO 13849-1)
  • Networked safety I/O removes the need for complex relay-logic safety circuits

EtherCAT Amplifier Features

  • Industry-leading 3.1kHz bandwidth significantly improves settling time.
  • Tuning-less capability reliably tunes servo system automatically - no user adjustment needed.
  • Powerful package of tuning functions include compensation for the effects of machine inertia, vibration, friction, and ripples in output.
  • Maintains tuning accuracy despite inertia changes up to 30:1.
  • IEC 61508 SIL3 safety certification.
  • Improved filtering minimizes inaccuracies due to electrical interference, machine resonance and mechanical vibration.

EtherCAT (CoE) Communications Reference

  • High Speed Deterministic Digital Network
  • Open Protocol (
  • Adheres to the CANopen device profile (CiA402)
  • 30W to 15kW Output
