EtherNet/IP-enabled servo drive provides co-ordinated motion for low-axis machines

27 April 2012

The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix 350 single-axis 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. It can be used with the Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5370 Series of programmable automation controllers and the PanelView Plus human-machine interfaces.

When coupled with these other Allen-Bradley products, the Kinetix 350 drive provides a cost-effective entry into the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system. With this single design environment, the Integrated Architecture system 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.

To help protect personnel and increase productivity, the Kinetix 350 servo drive is equipped with safe, torque-off functionality. With the safe-off capability, tasks such as machine set-up, cleaning, removal of jams and other maintenance tasks that previously required power-down conditions, can now be accomplished without shutting down. Instead, drive output can be disabled, allowing faster machine restart.

The Kinetix 350 servo drive has an available 400W to 3kW power range to meet a wide array of global machine requirements, including support for 120-volt ac input, typical of the power outlets found in non-industrial settings.
