Rockwell Automation’s EtherNet/IP-enabled Kinetix 350 extends integrated motion to smaller applications.
Rockwell Automation introduced its Kinetix 350 single-axis EtherNet/IP servo drive designed for low-axis machines. When the drive is paired with the company’s CompactLogix 5370 Series PAC and PanelView Plus HMI, the integrated architecture system scales from 200-10,000 I/O.
The servo drive is also equipped with safe, torque-off functionality that allows tasks such as machine setup, cleaning, removal of jams and other maintenance tasks to be performed without shutting down. Instead, drive output can be disabled, allowing faster machine restart. The Kinetix 350 servo drive has an available 400W to 3kW power range and supports 120-volt AC input, typical to power outlets found in nonindustrial settings.
