You have to be careful when replacing your Indramat DDS02.1-W050-DS01 drive. There are 150 different types of DDS drive to choose from, and they all look alike. How confident are you that you can find the exact match for your machinery? While finding the cheapest DDS02.1-W050-DS01 drive you can find on eBay may seem like a good plan (it’s not), the DIY approach can end up costing your business big in avoidable downtime and repairs.
Choosing the right Indramat DDS drive
The DDS02.1 (or DDS 2.1) drive series and DDS02.2 (DDS 2.2) drives look very similar. It’s difficult to differentiate between the two drive types on physical appearance alone. Even drives within the DDS02.1 series – all 70 of them – look indistinguishable to the untrained eye. Oh, and there are also DDS03.1 and DDS03.2 drives to further complicate things.
Always locate the model number on your drive before you try to find a replacement Indramat drive. Check, and then double check, to make sure that you have the exact model number before swapping out your drive.
Of course, the guy who found a random motion control drive, and is now trying to sell it to the highest bidder, might not be as concerned about the specifics as you are with your machinery.
“Yeah, it’s a DDS… uh, 201… uh, WD-40… uh…”
Don’t roll the dice on your machinery
The best way to avoid any confusion or compatibility issues is to restore your current DDS02.1-W050-DS01 drive.
