The Kinetix 6000 Servodrive is the latest addition to the Kinetix line of integrated motion products.

Rockwell Automation, Milwaukee, has added the Kinetix 6000 Servo Drive to its expanding line of integrated motion products. The Kinetix 6000 features a fiber-optic Sercos interface linking the drive and controller. The single, digital, fiber-optic link eliminates up to 18 wires/axis to prevent phasing problems and electrical noise often associated with discrete wiring.

Built-in smart motor technology provides automatic identification of motor configurations for easy integration with the drives. The drives feature a Power Rail mounting and wiring system. It replaces traditional dc bus bars, DIN rails or fasteners, auxiliary power wires, and inter-module cabling.

The drive offers a velocity bandwidth greater than 400 Hz and a current-loop bandwidth greater than 1,300 Hz. The 230-V unit is just 185 mm deep and the 460-V unit is 260 mm. The shallow depth lets drives fit standard 200-mm (8 in.) or 300-mm (12 in.) deep enclosures.

Target applications include packaging, material handling, converting, and assembly.
