Introducing the fully fledged drive for high-frequency spindles: KEB Automation has extended its ongoing portfolio with the launching of a compressed new drive for high-frequency spindles designed for DIN rails – the C6 Remote I/O EtherCAT drive module with CE and cULus qualifications.
The C6 drive module is capable of achieving a shaft speed of up to 200,000 revolutions per minute in particularly small motors for voltages ranging from 24 to 72 volts (DC). The additional integration of output filter technology helps to boost compatibility with any chosen synchronous machines further still.
With its lightweight design and high performance in the low-voltage range, the significant C6 Drive Module stands out from the crowd in many methods where conventional servo amplifiers would not be proper. KEB works in close partnership with business partners specializing in high-frequency spindles (0.75–900 kilowatts) on projects for machine tools – including milling, drilling and grinding technology – running at speeds of over 120,000 revolutions per minute.
