Features of KeDrive D3
Modular & scalable
The system offers a wide variety of options due to the elaborate structure. For example, additional drive modules can be directly connected or used by the control in a detached state.
Cost-saving multi-axis drives
The highly dynamic drive modules are overload resistant to 300% and are available in 1-, 2-, and 3-axis versions.
Integrated safety controller
A control module with an integrated, cross-axis safety controller with safety I/Os is available as an option.
More than 50% space saving
Compared to standard system configurations, the compact KeDrive D3 system takes less than half as much space in the control cabinet.
Drive power for every application
Complete in hardware, software and service, safe in use and intelligent in function. With KeDrive D3 drive technology, multi-axle applications can be solved economically, intelligently and future-proof.
At the heart of the KeDrive product family is the compact KeDrive D3 control and drive system consisting of a motion controller with optional safety controller, supply unit and multi-axis drives.
Control, drives, motors and safety technology are perfectly matched and can be flexibly combined depending on the application. A user-friendly tool is available for simple commissioning and comprehensive diagnostics.
The KEBA experts get the maximum out for you. With the professional drive design, your machines achieve maximum performance, while acquisition and energy costs are reduced to a minimum.
The D3-DU control solution for drives, PLC , motion, robotics and CNC is very high performance with maximum flexibility. Different CPU versions - from the Intel Atom 1.3 GHz to the Intel Core i3 2x 2.1 GHz - facilitate application-optimized computing power, thereby enabling Visualization, image processing, motion, robotics, CNC and SPS to run economically on a single control system.
The control module is optionally available with a directly integrated safety controller including safety I/Os. A small display supports with quick configuration and diagnosis of the control, safety controller and drives.
KeDrive D3-DU 3x5 S
The safety controller is a safety option integrated in the KeDrive D3-DU. The integrated design means that the requirements with regard to compactness in the control cabinet are particularly well met. This safety controller implements the safety logic and, in combination with the encoder box, also safe motion monitoring both axis-related and in space.
Simple safety tasks through to enhanced safety-oriented robotics solutions can be implemented easily and quickly. The safety controller already has 30 fail-safe inputs and outputs and enables extension via EtherCAT.
A graphical programming tool with numerous predefined functions allows simple configuration of safety sensors and actuators and even entire robots. Inputs and outputs can easily be linked to the safety logic by means of “drag & drop”.
The supply unit offers a central mains supply for the entire axis system and ensures a simple as well as time- and cost-optimized installation.
By supplying the axes via a DC link, an optimum energy exchange takes place between the axes. The braking energy produced during regenerative operation is dissipated via a common, central brake resistor.
In addition to the power supply, 24 V of control voltage is also available for drives, control, safety controller and peripheral devices. In the event of mains failure, the required energy is taken from the DC link to safely bring the drives to a standstill.
The KeDrive DA axis controller, with its various design versions, offers optimum flexibility and economic efficiency. Thanks to the feedback-control version with 1 to 3 axes in one module, a modular and very compact design can be realized. The KeDrive D3-DA axis controller operates all common synchronous and asynchronous motors and direct drives. With the multi-encoder interface, a wide range of encoder types can be connected to one interface.
The most fundamental, drive-integrated safety function STO (Safe Torque Off) prevents an unwanted startup of the motor according to EN 60204-1; it safely renders the drive torque-free. This function in combination with the optional SBC safety function (Safe Brake Control) is integrated as standard in the axis controllers.
The inputs, which are likewise integrated as standard, can be configured for detecting end position switches or reference switches. They can also be freely occupied with any digital sensors and evaluated in the control application.
