Servo Drives

Our servo drives are designed to provide precise control, optimum torque and a rich feature set to complement our wide range of our rotary servo motors and linear positioning systems. We offer the broadest connectivity with the most advanced control technology, simplest commissioning and most compact packaging available in the global marketplace.

Kollmorgen servo drives are utilized by machines to offer motion control in dynamic applications. Kollmorgen servo drives are commonly paired with our broad lineup of Kollmorgen servo motors but are suited to run with most servo motors on the market due to flexible setup software and the most popular feedback support on the market (including resolvers, incremental encoders, BiSS, EnDat, Hiperface, sine encoders). Kollmorgen servo drives even support ac induction motors and dc motors in certain varieties for the ultimate in a platform servo drive functionality.

Kollmorgen servo drives are used for dynamic motion applications where precise positioning, speed control, or torque efficiency is key. Kollmorgen servo drives range from 300 watts to 50,000 watts of continuous duty power output. Peak outputs Kollmorgen servo drives are impressive with peak operation at 3 times the rated continuous current for a full 5 seconds in certain drives. This is a clear Kollmorgen advantage since many manufacturers can only rate peak operation at 1 second or less. This allows many applications to use significantly smaller servo drives and expands the dynamic performance of the servo drive lineup.

Connectivity is a key aspect in machines so fieldbus options are plentiful. We support many popular ethernet fieldbuses like EtherCAT, Ethernet /IP, Profinet, and SynqNet. Support for traditional fieldbuses is available on certain models as well, including Profibus, Devicenet, CanOpen, RS485, RS232, and Sercos II. An upcoming technology making machines safer is functional integrated safety in servo drives. Kollmorgen S700 servo drives are available with integrated safety functionality. This allows machine builders to create inherently safer machines with flexible safety zones with less wiring and configuration than ever before. Supporting products are developed using the IEC61508 specification and can allow builders to certify machines adherent to the ISO13984 specification when applied using proper specification practices.
