Since the end of February 2021, Dunkermotoren's fully integrated PROFINET solution has been officially certified by the PROFIBUS user organization.
This means another important feature is fully integrated into the motor, which is a milestone in terms of cabling, commissioning and IIoT capability. Dunkermotoren, the world leader in brushless DC motors with integrated electronics from 1 to 4000 watts, is the first drive technology manufacturer to fully integrate its certified PROFINET solution with PROFIdrive into a motor.
The certification assures Dunkermotoren that the high standards of stability, even under extreme bus conditions, are always maintained. Currently the products BG 95 dPro, BG 75 dPro, BG 66 dPro and the BGE 5510 dPro are available with PROFINET interface, covering the output power from 1 to 4000 W.
Dunkermotoren, part of the AMETEK group and drive technology manufacturer from the Black Forest for over 70 years, convinces with innovative, high-quality and flexible drives up to 4000 W output power. The portfolio includes brushless and brushed DC motors, as well as linear systems and AC motors. Since the beginning of 2020, the portfolio has been expanded by the sister company MAE to include stepper motors and blowers. All components can be expanded in a modular system by gearboxes, encoders, brakes and integrated or external electronics to form the complete drive. Since March 2021, the Donaueschingen-based automation specialist EGS Automation has also been part of Dunkermotoren, further strengthening the position of both companies in the field of industrial automation.
