  • Lets you run servo and induction motors on one drive platform
  • Safe Torque-off is certified at ISO 13849-1 PLd/SIL 2
  • Uses Load Observer real-time tuning technology
    • Helps save time by mitigating the need for tuning each axis
    • Automatically compensates for unknown mechanics, and compliance, such as in belts, flexible couplings, and shafts
    • Automatically adjusts for applications where inertia varies during operation
    • Enhances machine performance

Kinetix 5500 Integrated Safety Servo Drives

With an integrated safety drive, the safety signal is traveling through the EtherNet/IP network cable instead of being hard wired from drive to controller. You can change configurations for any of the drives on the network without having to change wiring. It can all be done with Studio 5000™ Logix Designer and your controller through the use of the EtherNet/IP network. With Kinetix 5500 Integrated Safety Servo Drives, you can:

  • Perform SIL3 Ple Safe Torque Off safety functions over EtherNet/IP connection
  • Complete project integration in Studio 5000™ Logix Designer for control, safety, and motion
  • Decrease wiring of safety circuit
  • Lessen number of components required
  • Validate your safety system through code reuse
  • Reduce cabinet space requirements
