EtherNet/IP Drive Integrates Motion

The Allen-Bradley Kinetix 6500 is said to be the first high-performance, modular servo drive to leverage embedded EtherNet/IP technology for integrated motion control.

The EtherNet/IP drive support available with the Kinetix 6500 helps eliminate the need for a dedicated motion network and allows high-performance drives, I/O, smart actuators and any other EtherNet/IP-connected device to be supported on a common network. When used with the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix programmable automation controller, the Kinetix 6500 drive helps to provide increased machine design flexibility, improved system performance and reduced system cost. Integrated motion on EtherNet/IP within the Kinetix 6500 servo drive uses CIP Motion, an extension of the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) from the Open DeviceNet Vendors Association (ODVA). The Kinetix 6500 drive also offers advanced safety features, such as safe stop, zero speed monitoring, safe direction monitoring and safe maximum acceleration monitoring.
