KEB S6 servo drive

Sept. 13, 2022

The KEB S6 servo drive delivers integrated functional safety options, including failsafe-over-EtherCAT (FSoE), safe-torque-off (STO) and safe limited speed. These safety features can be controlled over the SIL3-rated bus protocol. The S6 supports many communication protocols and features Safety over EtherCAT to reduce the amount of discrete wiring going in and out of the cabinet. FSoE offers machine builders a way to simplify wiring, shorten installation times, reduce cost and help with diagnostic capabilities. The S6 is desogmed for high-performance servo applications requiring real-time communication, advanced SIL3 safety functionality and integrated brake control. It is compatible with various motor types, ranging from induction and ac servo motors to linear and synchronous reluctance motors.
