A new generation of smart drives feature an Ethernet interface compatible with the Powerlink motion-control standard. The Mint Lite capability is available on the MicroFlex e100 and MotiFlex e100 single and three-phase drive ranges, in power ratings up to 33.5 A. The drives may be used to control rotary and linear servomotors, linear motors, closed-loop vector motors, and in V/Hz control modes.

Mint Lite supports a range of basic motion programming requirements including performing relative and absolute moves, S-ramp profiles, jog and homing movements, changing target positions on the fly, registration moves, and reacting to real-time trigger events. It allows stand-alone drives to handle cutting or feeding to length, indexing axes, simple pick-and-place motion, and machine adjustments such as changing guides or backstops to reconfigure machinery for new batches.
