KEB America, Inc.’s F6 VFD and S6 Servo Drive are now PROFIsafe certified. The PROFIsafe certification by TÜV Rheinland ensures KEB drives deliver functional safety over the bus to industrial machinery requiring PROFINET communication.

KEB’s COMBIVIS 6 commissioning and diagnostic software supports the F6 and S6 drive controllers. These drives operate induction and AC permanent magnet servo motors with speeds as fast as 45,000 rpm. They feature flexible heatsinks, a dual-channel encoder card, power ranges from 0.75 kW to 450 kW, and internal positioning capability for motion control applications.
