Rockwell Automation introduces Allen-Bradley Kinetix 5100 servo drive

November 14, 2019 — Rockwell Automation is introducing a Kinetix 5100 servo drive, Kinetix TLP motor and cable that can function as a system without a controller.

The Allen-Bradley Kinetix 5100 servo drive has multiple control modes available to support a range of high-speed, low-power motion control applications. The drive can be used with a Micro800 controller, a Logix controller or even by itself, allowing OEMs to choose how the product best functions in their applications. Using the Kinetix 5100 servo drive, OEMs can create a motorized, or automated, system that can help speed up changeovers.

Additionally, with built-in safe torque off, users can remove motor torque without removing power from an entire machine, allowing a machine to restart faster after it has reached a safe state. Dual-port EtherNet/IP also supports device-level ring topologies. 

The Kinetix 5100 servo drive provides a migration option for users of the Allen-Bradley Ultra 3000 digital servo drive. That system will soon be phased out in favor of the Kinetix 5100 servo drive.
