What Causes Servo Drive Contamination?
Summer’s higher indoor temperatures and humidity are a natural catalyst for oil, dust and chemical contamination, helping wreak havoc on a servo drive’s circuitry and cooling system. These unwanted substances can cause tracks corrosion and components damage, which can be a source of intermittent problems.
While some damaged components can be replaced, multiple damaged tracks can render a circuit board unrepairable. To avoid all of these issues, it is crucial to remove the contaminants from the circuit board.
Motor Systems uses a state-of-the-art cleaning system for this delicate task. The first step is to apply a biodegradable cleaning solution that is safe for electronic components. Following this treatment, the circuit boards are then run through a “burning” process in a temperature-controlled lab oven. Having been rid of any remaining moisture, the drive is now ready for testing.
