Lenze Americas: Servo inverter drive system
See it at PACK EXPO Booth #4141! Lenze Americas’ Servo Inverter i700 drive system, designed for multi-axis applications, provides extremely short cycle times, 32-bit signal resolution, and an overload capacity of more than 200%.
The i700 is equally suited for simple positioning tasks and highly dynamic, precise, multi-axis applications in handling and packaging machines or robot applications.
The Servo Inverter i700 single-axis and double-axis modules offer a power range from 0.37 to 15 kW, along with appropriate power supply modules. Plug connectors enable easy wiring. Under normal operating conditions the power supply modules do not require filtering or DC fusing, and have a built-in dynamic brake chopper. Intermediate electrical connections between the i700 drives are cable-free, using an innovative rail system, and are easily installed by setting connector arms.
Lenze offers a variety of i700 cooling technologies, including cold plate, push-through technology, and panel mounted units. Supporting the full spectrum of motor technologies, from standard 3-phase motors to synchronous servomotors, the i700 uses a single interface for simple engineering. The dynamic motor control is suitable for a wide range of applications.
Intuitive software tools and a central engineering interface, make it simple to integrate the i700 into automation architectures through EtherCAT. Automatic download of parameters and firmware, along with auto-tuning functions, ensure fast commissioning. Additionally, the i700 features integrated safety functionality to simplify the machine design. Safe Torque Off (STO) is provided as a standard feature. In order to implement extended safety networks, Lenze offers variants, for example, SS1, SS2, SOS, SLS, SDI or SLI, which achieve the highest safety level (SIL 3, PL e) over EtherCAT (FSoE).
