At Hannover Messe 2013, Control Techniques, an Emerson Industrial Automation company, is demonstrating how the open Ethernet capabilities of the Unidrive M range of drives can deliver maximum synchronisation accuracy.

The demonstration shows an open system in which Unidrive M is controlling the synchronisation between two Unimotor HD servomotors monitored by a standard IP network camera — all linked by an open IEEE 1588 Ethernet network.

According to the company, which can be found on Stand H35 in Hall 15, each drive in the Unidrive M range benefits from a completely open creation environment, which ensures that machine designers using Unidrive M have a wide choice of components and will not be restricted by closed systems.

Hannover Messe runs until 12 April 2013 in Germany.

Unidrive M in detail

  • Unidrive M uses the Codesys programming platform with standard IEC 61131-3 programming languages and standard Ethernet for communication across drives, I/O, HMIs, PLCs and other industrial devices.
  • The range supports connectivity with Profinet RT, Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP and Ethercat devices.
  • The drives are claimed to enable all manufacturers to increase the throughout of their machines via advanced motor control.
  • For Unidrive M, Control Techniques has developed a high-bandwidth motor control algorithm with up to 3,300Hz current loop and 250Hz speed loop bandwidth.
