Rockwell Automation’s Allen-Bradley Kinetix 6500 features integrated motion over EtherNet/IP technology for simplified and enhanced machine design. According to the company, it’s the first high-performance modular servo drive that leverages embedded EtherNet/IP technology for integrated motion control. The EtherNet/IP drive support available with the Kinetix 6500 servo drive helps eliminate the need for a dedicated motion network and allows high-performance drives, I/O, smart actuators, and any other EtherNet/IP-connected device to be supported on a common network. When used with the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix programmable automation controller, the Kinetix 6500 helps provide increased machine design flexibility, improved system performance, and reduced system cost. Integrated motion on EtherNet/IP within the Kinetix 6500 servo drive uses CIP Motion, an extension of the common industrial protocol (CIP) from the Open Device Vendors Association. The Kinetix 6500 also offers advanced safety features such as safe stop, zero speed monitoring, safe direction monitoring, and safe maximum acceleration monitoring.
