Fluid Power/Motion Control drive, the 3200 C minimizes time for commissioning and enables simple device replacement via its pluggable memory card and diagnostics via an integrated Web server. DYNAMIC SERVO INVERTER SUPPORTS FULL SPECTRUM OF MO- TOR CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES In conjunction with the controller 3200 C, the i700 servo inverter constitutes the Lenze controller-based automation system for machines with central motion control. Designed to minimize motion control complexity, the i700 simplifies machine design, THE PERFECTIONIST FOR DYNAMIC PRECISION APPLICATIONS: OUR METAL BELLOWS COUPLING. build, and commissioning. Short cycle times, 32-bit signal resolution, and an overload capacity of more than 200 percent make the i700 suitable for highly dynamic, precise, multi-axis applications in handling and packaging machines and robotics. Servo Inverter i700 single-axis and double-axis modules offer a power range from 0.37 to 15 kW, along with appropriate power supply modules. Plug connectors enable easy wiring. Under normal operating conditions the power supply modules do not require filtering or DC fusing, and have a builtin dynamic brake chopper. Intermediate electrical connections between the i700 drives are cable-free, using an innovative rail system, and are easily installed by setting connector arms. The i700 features a variety of cooling technologies, including cold plate, push-through technology, and panel mounted units. Supporting the full spectrum of motor technologies, from standard 3-phase motors to synchronous servomotors, the motor control i700 uses a single interface for simple engineering. Intuitive software tools and a central engineering interface make it simple to integrate the i700 into automation architectures through EtherCAT. The i700 features integrated safety functionality to simplify the machine design. Whether engineering a controllerbased operation for central motion control or a drive-based operation for machines with decentralized motion control, motion-centric automation is for packaging and other machine applications that demand a lot of motion. From drive dimensioning to configuration and commissioning, through to maintenance and diagnostics, efficient and uniform tools should support the design process with standardized, customizable control software templates for machines performing recurring tasks. The motion-centric engineering approach and some of the newest technologies on the market can significantly improve productivity while reducing control design complexity and time-tomarket for new machine offerings.
