Rockwell Automation Enhances Kinetix 5700 Servo System

Rockwell Automation introduced two additions to the Kinetix 5700 servo system.

The Kinetix 5700 regenerative bus supply regenerates excess energy, putting it back on the facility’s grid or making it available for plantwide use. It also allows plant workers to monitor energy usage over EtherNet/IP.

It performs common DC bus voltage regulation across the entire voltage input range, which helps protect connected assets from voltage dips and inconsistent power.

The Kinetix 5700 large frame drive is designed for machines with large axis counts and higher power requirements. An added large-frame inverter extends the power capability up to 112 kW. The drive is available in single- and dual-axis servos with safety capability. The safety features allow workers to put a machine into a safe state, so they can access it and perform maintenance without completely stopping production.

In addition, the large-frame drives include embedded runtime adaptive tuning and load observer technologies, which help reduce the time required for manual adjustments during commissioning.

The Kinetix 5700 system offers the largest power range available from Rockwell Automation servo drives – from 1.6kW up to 112 kW.
