Rockwell Automation Expands Kinetix 5100 Servo Drive and TLP Motor Pairing to 480V

January 5, 2021

The Rockwell Automation Kinetix 5100 servo drive and Kinetix TLP servo motor stand-alone motion solution is now available in 480V for use in a wider range of OEM applications for packaging, converting, print and web, machine and assembly, and life sciences.

The Kinetix 5100 servo system meets growing consumer demand for more product variety by providing a market-competitive motion-control offering for flexible, stand-alone machines. Using the Kinetix 5100 servo drive, OEMs can create a motorized or automated system that can help speed up changeovers.

Additionally, with built-in safe torque off, users can remove motor torque without removing power from an entire machine. This allows a machine to restart faster after it has reached a safe state. Dual-port EtherNet/IP also supports device-level ring (DLR) topologies.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
