Easy set-up servo drive for machines requiring less than 1.5kW
15 October 2010
The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix 3 component servo drive from Rockwell Automation is offered in models as small as 50W, the drive having the flexibility to tailor axes to a machine’s actual power requirement, which minimises system size and cost. Its compact design makes the drive ideal for machines that require less than 1.5kW and up to 12.55Nm of instantaneous torque.
The Kinetix 3 component servo drive is easily configured using Allen-Bradley UltraWare, a free software available as part of the Kinetix Accelerator Toolkit. Configuration can be further simplified by using the automatic motor recognition with Allen-Bradley TL-Series rotary motors, TL-Series linear actuators, and LDL-Series and LDC-Series linear servo motors. Additional features include online vibration suppression, advanced auto-tuning and faster settling time. The drive can index up to 64 points via Modbus or its own digital inputs.
To further simplify the user experience, the drive can be incorporated into a connected component solution. The Connected Component Building Blocks (CCBB) for Kinetix 3 will provide CAD drawings, electrical layouts, Bill of Materials, sample code and operator interface screens. It will also include the ability to perform indexing operations for three axes over the Modbus network using the MicroLogix 1400 controller, Allen-Bradley PanelView component operator interface and TL-Series motors.
