General-purpose servo drive solution
Danfoss FlexMotion™ is a user-friendly and open servo motion solution. It consists of three different servo drive product lines, each with their own unique benefits, and covers both decentral as well as central solutions. But, as they are based on the same platform, the user interface is identical and programming, installation and maintenance are equally quick and easy.
Developed specifically for the food and beverage, packaging, pharmaceutical and material handling industries, Danfoss FlexMotion™ consists of:
- VLT® Integrated Servo Drive ISD® 510
- VLT® Decentral Servo Drive DSD 510
- VLT® Multiaxis Servo Drive MSD 510
Open and system independent
The unique open system architecture means they are compliant with most real-time Ethernet fieldbuses, such as EtherCAT®, POWERLINK® and PROFINET® IRT. 3rd-party masters can also be used.
The coherent central and decentral solutions provide optimal flexibility and machine design. Scalable control and function blocks fit into the different application and system needs.
With innovative hardware and software features, such as the ‘Click and Lock’ mounting concept, hybrid daisy-chain cabling, integrated Safe Torque Off (STO) and PLCopen certified motion libraries, the system is easy to integrate into different kinds of machine concepts.
A closer look at the VLT® Integrated Servo Drive ISD® 510
The VLT® Integrated Servo Drive ISD® 510 is a fundamental part of a flexible, high-performance decentral servo motion solution. It consists of a central power supply (VLT® Servo Access Box SAB®), which generates a 600 V DC supply and ensures a higher power density, drive modules and a hybrid daisy-chain cabling concept that significantly reduces the number of cables required.
Depending on the application, the SAB® can power up to 64 drives in a servo drive system.
The removable VLT® Local Control Panel (LCP) ensures user-friendly operation and enables direct connection to the advanced servo drives for fast commissioning, diagnosis and service.
A closer look at the VLT® Decentral Servo Drive DSD 510
The VLT® Decentral Servo Drive DSD 510 extends the selection of a decentral servo drive concept. It
delivers a rated power up to 4.5 kW and can be used with a wide range of PM servo motors. And, for optimal control of speed and position, it is equipped with the following feedback encoders:
- BiSS single- and multi-turn
- EnDat 2.1 and 2.2
- Hiperface and Hiperface DSL
It has excellent vibration resistance making it ideal for rotating machine parts. And the IP67 enclosure design ensures a high degree of protection.
A closer look at the VLT® Multiaxis Servo Drive MSD 510
The VLT® Multiaxis Servo Drive MSD 510 is a generic multi-axis system that allows perfect integration of decentral drives. It comprises a Power Supply Module (PSM 510), Drive Modules (SDM 511, SDM 512), Decentral Access Module (DAM 510) and an Auxiliary Capacitors Module (ACM 510). Modules are available in two frame sizes with a width of 50 mm and 100 mm. It supports EtherCAT®, POWERLINK® and PROFINET® IRT Ethernet-based protocols and features an internal brake resistor and a mounting plate that includes a DC link and an auxiliary control voltage supply. The ‘click and lock’ solution for the mounting plate makes installation simple and safe.
