KEB America, Inc., a leading provider of industrial automation solutions in North America, today announces the KEB F6 VFD and S6 Servo Drive now supports Modbus TCP/IP communication protocol. In addition to Modbus TCP/IP, the other supported Ethernet-based network communication protocols include EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, ProfiNet, and Powerlink.
“The variety of supported communication protocols in our drives give machine builders a lot of flexibility,” said Jonathan Bullick, sales and marketing manager at KEB America. “The Modbus TCP/IP option will truly benefit those working with process applications like pumps, fans, and compressors.”
KEB’s F6 and S6 drive controllers are equipped with Safe Torque Off (STO) and deliver exceptional speed and position control. They control both induction and AC permanent magnet servo motors. The two KEB drives feature flexible heatsinks, a dual-channel encoder card, power ranges up to 400Hp, and internal positioning capability for motion control applications.
