Integrated Motion Control

Rockwell Automation (Milwaukee, WI) released the Allen-Bradley Kinetix 6500 servo drive, a high-performance, modular model that features embedded EtherNet/IP technology for integrated motion control. Integrated motion on EtherNet/IP within the Kinetix 6500 servo drive uses CIP Motion, an extension of the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) from the Open Device Vendors Association (ODVA).

Integrated motion on EtherNet/IP within the Kinetix 6500 servo drive uses CIP Motion, an extension of the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) from the Open Device Vendors Association (ODVA). CIP Motion technology combines the requirements of deterministic, real-time, closed-loop motion control, offering full compliance with Ethernet standards, including IEEE 802.3 and TCP/IP. It also offers advanced safety features, such as safe stop, zero speed monitoring, safe direction monitoring and safe maximum acceleration monitoring.
