EtherNet/IP-enabled servo drive for smaller applications
04 April 2012
The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix 350 single-axis EtherNet/IP servo drive from Rockwell Automation delivers high-performance motion control over an EtherNet/IP industrial Ethernet network. The drive can lower the cost to deploy integrated motion on low-axis machines found in applications such as: indexing tables, process skids, case packers, erectors and packaging.
When used with the Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5370 Series of programmable automation controllers and the Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus human-machine interfaces, the Kinetix 350 drive provides a cost-effective entry into the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system. This scales from 200-10,000 I/O, giving machine builders the portability to migrate existing machine designs into new, higher-end machine designs and vice versa.
Kinetix 350 is equipped with safe, torque-off functionality, allowing tasks such as machine setup, cleaning, removal of jams and other maintenance tasks that previously required power-down conditions to now be accomplished without shutting down. Instead, drive output can be disabled, allowing faster machine restart.
The unit has an available 400W to 3kW power range plus support for 120Vac input.
