Servo System Saves Costs, Simplifies Sizing

Rockwell’s Allen-Bradley Kinetix 5100 servo drive can run without a controller to meet a range of performance needs.

The drive has multiple control modes available to support a wide range of high-speed, low-power motion control applications. It can be used with a Micro800 controller, a Logix controller or even by itself, allowing OEMs to choose how the product best functions in their applications. Bundling the drive, motor and cable together creates more competitive system pricing. And the ability for OEMs to select the products based on a machine’s power ratings can save time and effort—and help them get to market faster. With built-in safe torque off, users can remove motor torque without removing power from an entire machine, allowing a machine to restart faster after it has reached a safe state. Dual-port EtherNet/IP also supports device-level ring topologies. In addition, the drive provides an easy migration option for users of the Allen-Bradley Ultra 3000 digital servo drive, which will soon be phased out.
