TorqueControl4.0 | Bauer Gear Motor

As digitisation advances and with Industry 4.0 on the rise, passive actuators are becoming active components by relaying data that can be used in the machine or system for diagnostics or further processing. Developed under the slogan "Geared Motor Goes Online", TorqueControl4.0 has been combined with a mains-powered geared motor to create an Industry 4.0 component with a range of useful additional functions. Connecting TorqueControl4.0 via IO link enables the geared motor to be integrated into the machine control interface without the need for additional components.
