This new feature-rich ABB Servo Drive with powerful embedded programming intelligence offers built-in EtherCAT, Modbus/TCP and EtherNet/IP at 20 times the speed of existing smart drives for high speed applications. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The ABB MicroFlex e150 Servo Drives include numerous built-in industrial Ethernet protocols, and offer a universal encoder interfacing capability, powerful embedded motion control programming, and integrated functional safety capability. This breadth of standard features offers an enormously flexible and cost effective platform for high speed OEM machinery designs and applications - from networked systems hosted by PLCs or other devices, to motion control systems with distributed intelligence.

Machinery OEMs need versatile, cost effective products, and these new Drives have versatility in abundance - without needing to add hardware or choose configuration options. And the processing performance is spectacular too - offering some 20 times the speed of existing smart drives - making it ideal for performance intensive applications such as high-speed labeling, metal cutting machinery (plasma/waterjet), grinding or glue laying, packaging automation, such as form/fill/seal, semiconductor wafer handling, lab automation, and special effects stage and theater entertainment.
