Technical Overview

This upgrade is to replace the rewind arm positioning motors, knife positioning motors and to modify the control architecture to give a more robust positioning system. This consists of a new motor drive assembly that is fitted in place of the existing positioning motor. The cabling between the new motor cables will be replaced by a pre-manufactured cable loom.  

The controllers (M258 Télémechanique) will be mounted in the desk. The communications to the M258 will be via an Ethernet connection. New communication cables will be fitted to the first node, removing all existing connectors in this existing line.  New power supplies will be installed in the panels to supply the new motors. Control equipment to protect the new components will be provided for. The obsolete parts can be disposed of.
