Rockwell: Servo Drive

The Allen-Bradley Kinetix 5700 offers cabinet space savings and faster commissioning for large machines.

The drive offers dual-axis servos, a 1.6 to 60 kW power range, and time-saving tuning technology. Used in place of multiple servo drives, the platform can help machine builders reduce cabinet-space requirements by up to 70 percent, reduce wiring requirements by as much as 60 percent, and achieve easier configuration and commissioning. The unit uses Load Observer real-time tuning technology, which helps remove the need to tune each individual axis. This can help machine builders deliver high-performance motion control out of the box, and reduce commissioning time by days, weeks or even months for the largest machines. Once a machine is operational, the drive uses Tracking Notch Filter technology to detect and remove resonant frequencies, and automatically make tuning adjustments over time to help optimize machine performance. This can reduce the need for regular tuning maintenance and help prevent machine failures. DSL feedback ports provide support for Kinetix VP servo motors with single-cable technology. This makes it possible to package motor-power, brake and feedback wires all in a single cable, helping to reduce motion wiring requirements by as much as 60 percent.
