These drives open up opportunities to improve energy efficiency, especially through power regeneration: In multi-axis systems, they make possible the use of braking energy within the drive's DC-bus coupling, allowing excess energy to be fed back into the network. The drives have the ability to store static and rotational energy, as well as Smart Energy Mode functionality that manages a consistent energy demand from the mains side to save energy and avoid voltage spikes. The result is reduced energy consumption, improved grid compatibility and the use of smaller components at the same machine performance levels. Safety functions such as Safe Torque Off and Safe Motion ensure standard compliant machine safety functionality. Also available is integrated Motion Logic for a variety of application-specific technology functions and peripherally coordinated movements to handle complex motion tasks for up to ten axes. This allows machine builders to automate economically using a decentralized approach that can relieve, or even take the place of a higher-level control unit. This simplifies engineering and enables integrated modularization without the need for an additional higher-level control unit. Suggested applications include forming, plastics, metallurgy or material handling.
