In particular, the introduction of the new generation b maXX 5000 meets the new specs and were in fact developed in order to meet worldwide requirements for automation technology.

Marcus Finkbeiner was on hand at the SPS/IPC/Drives show to present the new servo series. The new line is considered an expansion of the b maXX 4000 series. With a power range of 1 to 35 kW and integrated safety functions, the drives come in various cooling versions and support regenerative applications

Baumüller, Mr. Finkbeiner says, has taken new approaches with the b maXX power module. These converters offer a power range of between 1 kW and 35 kW as well as safety functions.

The internal serial communication between drive controller and power unit significantly improves the diagnostic capability. The integrated line voltage measurement ensures operation in different networks throughout the world.

‘The b maXX 5000 continues to captivate due to its extremely compact design which also fulfils all technical requirements,’ he said.

The new addition to the Baumüller converter series supports Ethernet and can be used as an energy efficient drive system worldwide due to its rectifier and regenerative systems.

The b maXX converters come with different cooling versions. Air cooling and cold plate versions are available, depending on the application. This guarantees efficient temperature management.
