USB Cable, for Diagnostics, or SC4-HUB to PC
Part Number: CPM-CABLE-USB-120AB
Connectors: USB 2.0 A to B
Length: 3.05 m (10 ft)

Cable is used: 1) to use the diagnostic USB port on integral hp (AC input) ClearPath motors; or 2) to connect your host PC to a ClearPath-SC communication hub (e.g SC4-HUB). NOTE: This cable cannot be used with the diagnostic (rear USB) port of fractional hp (DC input) ClearPath models; for those, use the CPM-CABLE-USB-120 which has a micro-B connector.

Components

Logic Backup Power

  • A 24VDC power supply can be connected to the 24VDC input on the integral hp ClearPath models to provide logic backup power. This way, the motors retain encoder position and communication ability when AC bus power is removed (e.g. during E-stop). This avoids the need to re-home.
  • See the video or the ClearPath user manual appendix for how to properly size your 24 volt logic power supply.

RES-225 & BLOWER-1P230V (optional)

  • For applications that cause significant regenerated energy (e.g., vertical axes, and inertial loads decelerated quickly), the regenerated energy dissipation unit can be used to monitor and manage your motor's regenerative energy. It provides up to 250W of continuous energy dissipation.
  • The blower kit (AC powered fan and shroud) provides a significant increase in continuous torque for certain AC-input ClearPath motors. (ClearPath part numbers with “_Fan” show the increased capability.)

Using Analog Control Signals?

  • ClearPath-MC can be controlled with 0-10V or 4-20 mA analog signals by using ASU-FR510 Analog Send Unit (A/D converter).

PDF Icon User Manual

Need to use analog control signals? For maximum noise immunity, ClearPath-MC natively uses digital control signals, but this “Analog Send Unit” (ASU) allows you to use analog control signals (0-10V or 4-20mA) while minimizing associated noise issues. The ASU converts analog signals to digital signals compatible with ClearPath-MC, so you won’t have noise corruption. Just locate the ASU as close as possible to your analog source and send the accurately converted digital signals to ClearPath’s optically isolated inputs for high-fidelity control.
