Rockwell Automation Servo system with regenerative bus supply

The Kinetix 5700 servo system has been expanded to include a regenerative bus supply and large frame drive. The regenerative bus supply provides direct energy savings by regenerating excess energy and putting it back on the facility’s grid or making it available for plantwide use. It also allows plant workers to monitor energy usage over EtherNet/IP for energy-related decision-making. The large frame drive is designed for machines with large axis counts and higher power requirements. An added large-frame inverter extends the power capability up to 112 kW. It is available in single- and dual-axis servos with advanced safety capability.
