Product Details Supplier Info More products

Rockwell Automation has introduced a portfolio of products and enhancements that help provide closed- and open-loop drive control on Ethernet/IP.

This new portfolio is intended to help increase machine design flexibility, improve system performance and reduce system cost by providing all the capabilities of the Integrated Motion solution for the new Allen-Bradley Kinetix 6500 servo drive and enhanced Allen-Bradley Powerflex 755 AC drive on Ethernet/IP.

Rockwell Automation’s Integrated Motion on Ethernet/IP uses Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) Motion and CIP Sync technology from the Open Device Vendors Association (ODVA).

Using the Rockwell Software RSLogix 5000 software, machine builders can now access all the features and benefits of Integrated Motion for configuring, programming, commissioning and maintaining the Kinetix 6500 and Powerflex 755 drives on Ethernet/IP.

In addition to standardised operation and the consistent behaviour of the drive products, this new portfolio extends the power range of the Integrated Motion solution and provides support for servo and variable-speed AC drives.

The Ethernet/IP drive support also eliminates the need for a dedicated motion network and allows drives, input/output (I/O), smart actuators and any other Ethernet/IP-connected device to be supported on a common network.

The new Allen-Bradley Controllogix L73 and Controllogix L75 programmable automation controllers (PACs) offer users enhanced memory technology, Ethernet/IP motion control and redundancy performance improvements.

The PACs are suitable for rapidly expanding and information-intensive applications, such as batch processing, where additional memory is needed for recipe management.

As part of the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system, the Controllogix PACs offer users all of the benefits inherent in the company’s Logix Control Platform – a common programming environment, common network and common control engine.

The new Kinetix 6500 servo drive is a modular servo drive with embedded Ethernet/IP.

When used with the Controllogix PAC, the Kinetix 6500 servo drive provides an integrated drive solution on Ethernet/IP.

With the addition of the Kinetix 6500 drive, Ethernet/IP can integrate drive control, I/O, smart actuators and any other Ethernet/IP-connected device, helping to lower system cost and improve system performance.

Linear and Device Level Ring (DLR) topologies are fully supported with the embedded switch technology.

The Powerflex 755 AC drive with an embedded Ethernet port is being updated with CIP Motion support.

The drive can now be configured, programmed, commissioned and maintained using motion profiles and instruction sets within RSLogix 5000 software.

This allows integrated motion instructions to be used for coordinated drive control and provides a common solution for Powerflex 755 AC drives and Kinetix 6500 servo drives.

With the addition of the Powerflex 755 AC drive, Integrated Motion can now be used to control drives from 1hp to 350hp.

For end users and machine builders, the latest version of the RSLogix 5000 software includes more than 30 product enhancements, including support for Integrated Motion on Ethernet/IP, Controllogix L73 and Controllogix L75 PACs, Kinetix 6500 servo drives and Powerflex 755 AC drives, as well as additional controller support and usability, reporting and security features.

These new features simplify programming and configuration and facilitate the maintenance and troubleshooting of control and information systems.
