Milwaukee, Wis. – The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix 350 single-axis EtherNet/IP servo drive from Rockwell Automation delivers high-performance motion control on EtherNet/IP. The drive can lower the cost to deploy integrated motion on low-axis machines found in applications such as indexing tables, process skids, case packers, erectors and packaging.
When used with the Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5370 Series of programmable automation controllers and the Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus human-machine interfaces, the Kinetix 350 drive provides a cost-effective entry into the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system. Leveraging a single design environment, the Integrated Architecture system scales from 200-10,000 I/O, giving machine builders the portability to migrate existing machine designs into new, higher-end machine designs and vice versa.
To help protect personnel and increase productivity, the Kinetix 350 servo drive is equipped with safe, torque-off functionality. With the safe-off capability, tasks such as machine setup, cleaning, removal of jams and other maintenance tasks that previously required power-down conditions can now be accomplished without shutting down. Instead, drive output can be disabled, allowing faster machine restart.
The Kinetix 350 has an available 400W to 3kW power range to meet a wide array of global machine requirements, including support for 120V AC input, typical to power outlets found in nonindustrial settings.
