HIPERFACE DSL® is a purely digital motor feedback protocol that uses a minimum of connection cables between the frequency converter and motor feedback system.
It saves costs, requires less space, is easy to implement and offers the highest level of investment and machine safety at the same time. As an open interface, HIPERFACE DSL® combines all the advantages of a digital real-time interface – established One Cable Technology and an enormous increase in efficiency - and is therefore a foundation for Industry 4.0.
The reduced number of required connections makes a more compact motor design possible. In the future, a smaller servo drive will also be possible in many applications.
Only one cable between the inverter and motor cuts the drag chain in half and enables rapid cabling and fewer sources of error.
The reduced number of components simplifies installation and saves time and personnel costs for commissioning and maintenance.
HIPERFACE DSL® is characterized by increased resistance to interference and has safety technology certification for applications up to safety integrity level SIL3 (IEC 61508) and performance level e (EN ISO 13849-1). HIPERFACE DSL® can therefore be easily integrated into safety applications.
Continuous condition monitoring for the servo drive enables remote control of temperature, speed, LED current, supply voltage and rotation speed - throughout the entire service life. This increases machine availability and supports time management of the machine.
HIPERFACE DSL® allow for compact control cabinets, fewer cables, lower weight and reduced material and energy consumption whilst achieving the same high level of performance. The One Cable Technology therefore makes an important contribution to sustainability in machine engineering.
Countless manufacturers of motors and drives worldwide have already implemented HIPERFACE DSL® – proof of the high level of confidence in this innovative interface. Deciding on HIPERFACE DSL® reduces implementation effort for motion control customers to only one interface. At the same time, the customer has freedom in the choice of motor feedback systems. HIPERFACE DSL® therefore offers long-term investment security.

The opening up of HIPERFACE DSL® has been a complete success and the interface is already being implemented by Baumer. From left to right: Rolf Wagner (SICK Stegmann GmbH), Dr. Bernd Cordes (SICK Stegmann GmbH), Prof. Johann Pohany (Baumer) and Dr. Michael Schneider (Baumer).
With the opening up of the hitherto proprietary HIPERFACE DSL® interface, SICK has paved the way for all suppliers of motor feedback systems to make this internationally used standard available to their customers. Now Baumer is already implementing HIPERFACE DSL®. Other sensor producers will also start using the single-cable technology – discussions are already underway.
