New, decentralized 8400 motec frequency inverter drives enable plug-and-drive communication via real-time Ethernet networks. The addition of plug-in interfaces for PROFINET and EtherCAT make it possible to seamlessly integrate the relatively simple variable speed 8400 motec drives into existing, high-performance communications networks. The 8400 motec inverter drives are power dense, energy efficient and a dynamic solution for controlling motion at the source. The sophisticated design structure comprises three modules-a drive unit, communication unit and wiring unit. The compact size and IP 65 protection rating make the 8400 motec suitable for screw mounting outside the control panel directly on or near the motor-enabling quick commissioning and space savings in the control cabinet.
