Your machines — leaner, greener and more powerful
Meet the technology behind faster deployments and more capable smart machines. ArmorKinetix Distributed Servo Drives provide a modular, expandable solution to your motion control needs. By mounting the drives outside of the electrical cabinet - you can drastically reduce system complexity, lower total system costs and enable your workforce to be more productive.
Intelligent motion control built to supercharge your next smart machine concept
ArmorKinetix distributed servo drives are providing manufacturers with a new tool for designing production machines that are more efficient and effective.
Available as an integrated drive-motor solution and a near-motor drive, this technology enables a revolutionary approach for designing machines so they require fewer parts and terminations, and have smaller floor space requirements. This translates to shorter build times, fewer points of failure and higher productivity per square foot.
Learn how ArmorKinetix distributed servo drives can improve your machine designs.
What can decentralized motion control do for you?
Production machines can prove complicated to design, build and support. Moving to a decentralized architecture using ArmorKinetix Distributed Servo Drives can simplify these applications and help create more value. Changing to a decentralized design can reduce cabling by up to 90% and lower overall system costs by an average of 30%.
Does your ideal machine require multiple On-Machine components? ArmorKinetix features a standardized, machine-centric design that makes pairing the servo drives with other On-Machine devices simple to deploy and easy to understand.
Simplified Machine Designs, Limitless Possibilities
Reduced Machine Footprint
By mounting your drives externally and daisy chaining your motion network, you can reduce machine size, reduce cable lengths and design systems that require fewer parts.
Use data from integrated vibration and thermal sensors to gain predictive insights and quickly diagnose potential issues without having to open the control cabinet.
Decentralize your motion architecture to consume fewer parts and reduce connection points - shortening build times and reducing potential points of failure.
Enhanced Energy Efficiency
Reduce or eliminate the costs associated with enclosure temperature control and decrease the overall energy use of your machines.
Simplify your safety network and help protect your personnel and equipment using safe speed monitoring and safe torque off features.
Create your ideal machine by mounting integrated drive-motors and near-motor drives to create more flexible and modular designs, all on one drive platform.
