Kinetix 5500 EtherNet/IP Servo Drives

Our Bulletin 2198 Kinetix® 5500 Servo Drives connect to and operate with CompactLogix™ 5370 controllers, supporting Integrated Motion on EtherNet/IP. With its innovative, compact design, the Kinetix 5500 drive helps minimize machine footprint and simplifies system wiring. In addition, the dual-port Ethernet allows for both line and Device Level Ring (DLR) topologies.

Kinetix 5500 Integrated Safety Servo Drives

With an integrated safety drive, the safety signal is traveling through the EtherNet/IP network cable instead of being hard wired from drive to controller. You can change configurations for any of the drives on the network without having to change wiring. It can all be done with Studio 5000™ Logix Designer and your controller through the use of the EtherNet/IP network. With Kinetix 5500 Integrated Safety Servo Drives, you can:

  • Perform SIL3 Ple Safe Torque Off safety functions over EtherNet/IP connection
  • Complete project integration in Studio 5000™ Logix Designer for control, safety, and motion
  • Decrease wiring of safety circuit
  • Lessen number of components required
  • Validate your safety system through code reuse
  • Reduce cabinet space requirements
