Metronix ARS 2000 SE drives boost machine throughput and lower costs.
Metronix launched its ARS 2000 SE line of intelligent servomotor drives available in a choice of six single- or three-phase continuous output power ratings from 0.5 to 6 kVA. The line features a compact design with integrated line and motor filters plus an integrated brake chopper and braking resistor. In addition, the drives incorporate an increased overcurrent capability of four times the continuous output rating and the integration of Safe Torque Off (STO) functional safety. This is provided and certified to Category 4/PLe according to EN 13849-1.
The new drives also feature a universal encoder interfacing capability that allows connection to resolvers, analog/digital incremental encoders, and single/multiturn absolute encoders such as HIPERFACE or EnDat. Standard communications interfaces include the CAN fieldbus – compatible with the DS 402 CANopen device profile. One further feature is an SD Card interface, which can be used to store firmware and operating parameters.
