EtherNet/IP-enabled servo drive

10 April 2012

The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix 350 single-axis EtherNet/IP servo drive, from Rockwell Automation, is said to offer cost-effective co-ordinated motion for low-axis machines. The drive can lower costs for the deployment of 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 HMIs, the Kinetix 350 drive is said to offer a cost-effective entry into the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system. Benefitting from a 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 setup, cleaning, removal of jams and other maintenance tasks, which previously would have 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.
