    Compact design

    KeDrive D3 sets the standard for compactness in automation systems. For a typical configuration of 6 axes incl. auxiliary power supply, KeDrive D3 saves approx. 40% space in the control cabinet compared to commercially available multi-axis systems and 75% compared to the use of automation technology based on single axes.

    KeDrive D3 achieves its compactness through the following features:

    • Supply unit with built-in 24 V power supply
    • Three-axis controller

    Safety technology is an integral part of KeDrive D3. By high level of safety, extensive functionality and response times of 2 ms all applications solvable:

    • Standard
      STO acc. to SIL3, PL e, KAT 4, SBC acc. to SIL2, PL d, KAT 3
    • Option
      Safe motion functions such as SS1, SS2, SOS, SLS, SLI, SDI and SLP acc. to SIL3, PL e, KAT 4
    • Safety PLC
      The safety PLC built into the drive controller can respond to events quickly and with great flexibility.

    • Easy installation
      Installation costs are greatly reduced compared to other conventional drive engineering solutions, first because fewer components are needed and second because these components can be connected to each other quickly and easily using a simple connection system.

    • One-cable technology
      KeDrive D3 supports one-cable technology as well as conventional encoder systems This makes it possible to omit the encoder cable entirely and further simplify installation. The encoder information and the motor temperature are transmitted using just 2 wires of the motor cable.

    Dynamic and precision

    KeDrive D3 has a range of functions whose goal is to increase the dynamic and precision of machines.

    • Computing power
      Powerful drive ASIC with 32-bit micro-controller and floating-point unit for each axis controller, triple-axis controller without loss of computing power.

    • Control functions
      Compensation of encoder errors, errors in the mechanical transmission path, friction and torque-ripple, hiding resonance frequencies, predictive feed-forward control structure with pico-interpolation.

    • Auto-tuning
      Identification of the mechanical systems of the machine and automatic parameter configuration of control structures and parameters.

    Focus on energy efficiency

    The majority of energy consumption in factory automation is attributable to drive technology. Here, KeDrive D3 makes an important contribution to cost reduction.

    • Active power regeneration limits peak load consumption and thus connection costs
    • Efficient capacity modules as a dynamic energy storage system
    • Intelligent energy storage systems to protect against grid interruptions increase availability

    Automation from a single source

    Expand the KeDrive D3 drive system with scalable controllers in the same form factor. Power is supplied directly from the drive system.

    The KeDrive D3 controller combines PLC, motion, robotics and CNC applications. With just one platform and just one partner, you can automate even complex systems simply, safely and efficiently.

    Future-proof with KeDrive D3

    Drive-based Condition Monitoring

    Increase productivity and respond early to wear on mechanical components with KeDrive D3.

    3rd party - no problem!

    KeDrive D3 can be perfectly integrated into a wide variety of automation systems. Special and custom motors can be operated without complication.

    "Well connected"

    High-speed real-time communication with EtherCAT or PROFINET IRT ensures maximum contour accuracy and fast exchange of all data and parameters.

    Perfect industry solutions

    KeDrive D3 is at the heart of our industry solutions, e.g. in CNC machine tools, robotics, plastics technology or wind energy.
