Versatile motion control drive

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Heason Technology are distributing ABB's MotiFlex e180 high power, three phase servo drives.

Combining flexible Ethernet capability, multiple feedback support and integrated safe torque off (STO) safety, the range includes nine drives for linear and rotary servos or induction motors offering continuous power output to 90A and peak output to 120A.

The e180 can be adapted as part of a centralised control system or as a single axis intelligent stand-alone controller. With such application flexibility the e180 offers OEMs and machine builders a high performance servo drive solution that will benefit applications for continuous and heavy-duty motion control and machinery drive tasks in such industries as metal cutting/forming, textiles, plastics and packaging.

Four frame sizes offer four individually selectable continuous/peak output level and time combinations. With up to 300% of rms current available for peak overload conditions.

The drive's universal Ethernet communications capability includes configurable EtherCAT and POWERLINK in addition to Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP, or RAW Ethernet based systems. Drive feedback options include EnDat, SSI, BISS, SmartAbs and Hiperface as well as support for resolvers and incremental encoders.

On board IO includes six digital inputs, four digital outputs, two analogue inputs and one analogue output which may be configured in software for over-travel limits, pushbuttons or other machine functions. There are two high speed inputs to capture position for advanced synchronisation.
