IndraDrive Cs ADVANCED drives feature Sercos master and multi-Ethernet Interfaces.

Rexroth launched its IndraDrive Cs compact drive series that controls up to nine additional axes via a Sercos master interface and features integrated motion logic according to IEC 61131-3. The drives and their communication hardware support standard Ethernet-based communications interfaces, including Sercos, PROFINET IO (RT), EtherNet/IP, and EtherCAT. Users configure the desired communication protocol for the multi-Ethernet interface themselves using the software. In addition, the multi-encoder interface also supports a range of encoder systems, including EnDat, Hiperface, SSI encoder, simple TTL incremental encoder, sinus cosinus encoder, resolver, and the encoder system for Rexroth’s MSM motors. The drives feature a certified Safe Torque Off (STO) safety function and Safe Break Control (SBC) achieve Kat 4 PL e according to EN ISO 13849-1 and SIL 3
