The HRA25/35 and HDA30/45 HIPERDRIVEs (Highly Integrated Performance Drive) provide an automated changeover alternative to servomotors and other drive combinations since the HIPERDRIVE housing completely encompasses all the components that are usually required in such an environment. Another component built to support these drives, the HIPERDRIVE – HUB, connects several drives to a field bus system and reduces the amount of wiring needed. Product features include multiple rpm (revolution per minute) ranges, high static holding torque, field bus interface, status information and simplified cabling requirements. The drive is rated IP65, allowing it to function under harsh environmental conditions, such as paper and wood dust, sanding, or the abrasion of rubber.
