Sick opens up Hiperface DSL

Sick has announced that it is opening up its Hiperface DSL (Digital-Servo-Link) interface to all users. When launched six years ago, the interface made a single cable servomotor a reliable proposition for the very first time. Following the rapid adoption of the One Cable Technology, Sick has decided that the interface it invented will now be available as an open protocol.

Already, over 40 major manufacturers of servo drive technology have discovered the advantages of integrating the Hiperface DSL motor feedback technology into their products. Now tried, tested and field proven across the world, Hiperface DSL has become recognised as the industry standard in One Cable Technology and the leading standard protocol for digital feedback systems in servo drive technology.

Darren Pratt, Sick’s product manager for encoders in the UK said: “Creating an open interface is the logical next step in the phenomenal success story of Hiperface DSL, especially as manufacturers move towards Industry 4.0-enabled production environments. By opening up the proprietary interface, Sick will make Hiperface DSL an open market standard. Already major manufacturers have accelerated integration of Hiperface DSL digital feedback capability into their product development.
