Servo drive for cabinet space savings
Rockwell Automation’s Kinetix 5700 servo drive offers dual-axis servos, 1.6 to 60 kW power range, and tuning technology designed to help machine builders reduce cabinet-space requirements by up to 70%. The Kinetix 5700 is designed to reduce wiring requirements by 60% and achieves easier configuration and commissioning. The Kinetix 5700 servo drives use filter technology to detect and remove resonant frequencies and make tuning adjustments over time to help optimize machine performance. DSL feedback ports provide support for Kinetix VP servo motors with single-cable technology. This enables machine builders to package motor-power, brake, and feedback wires all in a single cable, which helps to reduce motion wiring requirements by as much as 60%.
The Kinetix 5700 servo drive combines high-performance vector and servo motor control designed to reduce machine complexity, time, and labor costs during integration. The Rockwell Software Studio 5000 Logix Designer software provides a design environment for configuring the Kinetix 5700 servo drive and integrating it with Logix controllers for motion and safety applications.
