This helps eliminate a dedicated motion network and allows high-performance drives, I/O, smart actuators and any other EtherNet/IP-connected device to be supported on a common network. Integrated motion on EtherNet/IP within the Kinetix 6500 servo drive uses CIP Motion. CIP Motion technology combines the requirements of deterministic, real-time, closed-loop motion control, offering full compliance with Ethernet standards, including IEEE 802.3 and TCP/IP. Position, speed and torque loops can be set within the new Kinetix 6500 servo drive. With the IEEE-1588 compliant Precision Clock Synchronization, multiple axes can be coordinated for precise, synchronized motion control.
