Drives Add Ethernet Protocols

The e100 servo motor drive family has been re-engineered to become compatible with three industrial Ethernet standards—EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP and Powerlink—as well as standard TCP/IP networks and the vendor’s Mint system building environment.

The drives offer system builders a choice of servo motor, closed-loop vector or V/Hz motor control modes, combined with an array of features and configuration options that provide versatility of use. The new drives are versions of the vendor’s e100 single- and three-phase drives. “Our new drives support multiple standards—out-of-the-box—at no extra cost and without any need for plug-in cards,” says Product Manager David Greensmith. “They provide system builders with a universal drive platform that can be used in many different ways to suit different customers and applications—from standalone motion control systems to networked systems hosted by PLCs or other devices.”
