Servo inverter

The I700 Servo Inverter by Lenze Americas is designed for multi-axis applications and features short cycle times and 32-bit signal resolution for demanding environments.

02/06/2012


Lenze Americas' Servo Inverter i700 is designed for multi-axis applications, which simplifies machine design, build and commissioning. Well-suited for material handling systems, the new drive system features an easy assembly concept and is notably compact and flexible. Extremely short cycle times, 32-bit signal resolution and an overload capacity of more than 200% make the new i700 equally suited for simple positioning tasks and highly dynamic, precise, multi-axis applications in handling and packaging machines or robot applications.

The 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 built-in 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.

Lenze offers a variety of i700 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 i700 uses a single interface for simple engineering. The dynamic motor control is suitable for a wide range of applications.

Intuitive software tools and a central engineering interface, make it simple to integrate the i700 into automation architectures through EtherCAT. Automatic download of parameters and firmware, along with auto-tuning functions, ensure fast commissioning. Additionally, the i700 features integrated safety functionality to simplify the machine design. "Safe Torque Off (STO)" is provided as a standard feature. In order to implement extended safety networks, Lenze offers variants, for example, SS1, SS2, SOS, SLS, SDI or SLI, which achieve the highest safety level (SIL 3, PL e) over EtherCAT (FSoE).

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
