Beckhoff: Servo drive system

See it at PACK EXPO International, Booth # S-3183! Beckhoff Automation will demonstrate its AMP8000 distributed servo drive system. Requiring no alterations to existing machines, the servo drive system features power ratings from 0.61 to 1.23 kW and standstill torque ratings from 2.00 to 4.8 Nm at an F4 flange size or power ratings from 1.02 to 1.78 kW and standstill torque ratings from 4.10 to 9.7 Nm with an F5 flange.

Motion control for the smart factory with AMP8000 servo system

The AMP8000 distributed servo drive system from Beckhoff promotes advanced motion control architectures that are cost-effective, highly efficient and easily adjustable through dramatic reductions in electronics, mechanical hardware and cabling. By combining a servo drive and servomotor into one device, the AMP8000 system reduces overall packaging machine footprint and space requirements inside control cabinets and enclosures. A single coupling module can operate up to five drives using the EtherCAT P One Cable Automation solution that supplies industrial-grade power and EtherCAT industrial Ethernet communication.

The servo drive system also represents the Beckhoff commitment to promoting safety technology in all areas via integrated STO and SS1 safety functions.
