Energy efficient servos with many Ethernet standards

Energy efficient servos with many Ethernet standards
Baldor has announced even greater flexibility for its highly versatile e100 servomotor drive range. The e100 family has been re-engineered to become compatible with no less than three industrial Ethernet standards - EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP and Powerlink - as well as standard TCP/IP networks and Baldor's own highly popular Mint system building environment. The drives offer system builders a choice of servomotor, closed-loop vector or V/Hz motor control modes, combined with an array of features and configuration options that provide exceptional versatility of use. Baldor now supports all of the Ethernet networks on its NextMove e100 motion system and machine controller.

The new drives are versions of Baldor's e100 single- and three-phase drives. The MicroFlex e100 and MotiFlex drives have earned a reputation for being extremely easy to configure and use, through features such as wizard application software which removes the traditional complexity of drive set up. 

The drives also offer many novel hardware capabilities that PLC users can benefit from. The three-phase drives are energy efficient, offering a DC bus system that can share regenerated power with other axes. As well as their own local I/O and CANopen expansion, many drives also have option card slots, providing a high degree of configurability for specific applications including almost all fieldbuses. 

Other features include universal encoder feedback input, and programmable notch filters to eliminate mechanical resonance effects, as well as the ability to be used with servomotors, closed loop vector motors or in V/Hz motor speed control modes.
