Bosch Rexroth releases ADVANCED line of IndraDrive Cs series
November 30, 2018 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
November 30, 2018 – Bosch Rexroth now offers the ADVANCED performance level for its compact drive series IndraDrive Cs, featuring both a sercos master interface as well as increased processing power.
It is possible to connect up to nine slave drives as well as additional external input/output modules.
Sercos allows users to use the ECONOMY versions as slave drives on the new ADVANCED device, even in hard real-time environments.
The small drives and their universal communication hardware support all standard Ethernet-based communications interfaces, e.g. sercos, PROFINET IO (RT), EtherNet/IP, and EtherCAT. Users configure the desired communication protocol for the multi-Ethernet interface themselves using the software.
In addition, the innovative multi-encoder interface also supports a range of standard encoder systems, e.g EnDat, Hiperface, SSI encoder, simple TTL incremental encoder, sinus cosinus encoder, resolver, and the serial encoder system for Rexroth’s compact MSM motors. IndraDrive Cs also supports different linear motor versions by using the electronic communication and /or analog and digital Hall sensors.
The compact small drives with the certified Safe Torque Off (STO) safety function and Safe Break Control (SBC) achieve Kat 4 PL e according to EN ISO 13849-1 and SIL 3 according to EN 62061, and allow the fast realization of modern safety concepts. These safety functions are available for all power stages and performance levels of IndraDrive Cs.
Rexroth offers the highly dynamic IndraDrive Cs compact drives for open and closed loop operations and direct network connection in two versions. The converters for 100 to 230V AC mains supply are designed for connecting motors with 50 to 750 watts of mechanical continuous power and can be operated as single phase drives without significant power loss. The drives for supply voltages of 200 to 500V AC cover the power range from 400 watts to 9kW continuous power.
