Rk II series motor cable shielded?

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Mon Jun 02, 2014 6:29 pm

Q: I'm planning to use some of your RK II series high efficiency stepper motors and drivers for a high duty cycle application. One piece of information I cannot find on your literature. Is the motor cable shielded or not? I see 6 wires. Is one of them a drain wire for the mesh shield?

A: The RK II series motor cables are not shielded. The 6th wire is for a frame ground to prevent electric shock. It's not a drain wire for the shield. Please provide shielding if necessary. FYI our AR series offers shielded motor cables with both FG and drain.
