Kollmorgen’s AKD servo drives support the functionality of the base analog drive, indexing drive, CANopen® drive and EtherCAT® drive all from a single drive SKU, enabling machine builders to benefit from more efficient bench testing and prototyping, while helping them to smoothly transition from one bus type to another.
As part of their Z-Drives platform of plug-in servo drives, ADVANCED Motion Controls’ powerful DZE & DZS series of servo drives for EtherCAT-enabled control networks provide precise motion but at reduced cost when applied in a multiple networked axes system.
Beckhoff Automation’s EL7201 servo terminal for the EtherCAT Terminal system integrates a complete servo drive for motors up to 200 W into a standard 12 mm I/O terminal housing, simplifying cabling and commissioning while reducing cabinet size requirements and costs.
New distributed drive technology reduces cabinet space and wiring and supports modular design of packaging machinery. The remote mounted, IP 65 rated servo drives from B&R combine the benefits of integrated servo motor/drive with additional flexibility, onboard I/O, use of standard motors and extended power range.
Because B&R's ACOPOSmulti65 is a machine-mounted servo drive, the switching cabinet only contains the power supply modules and the necessary electromechanical components, making it much easier to implement modular machine architectures.
See it at PACK EXPO Booth # S-5277! The Camco RSD from DE-STA-CO is a zero-backlash, cam-actuated drive that can be used with both rotary and linear systems for accurate, smooth motions even at high speeds or with rapid speed changes.
