This all-in-one drive solution has been designed to meet the strategic challenges of increasingly complex and demanding production environments, induced by the transition to Industry 4.0.
A decentralized system, the motor and drive assembly offers strong dynamic performance and outstanding efficiency levels for process, manufacturing and intralogistics applications, through an easy to install and easy to set-up package.
For a high level of performance, Commander ID300 includes advanced features for optimizing machine and process performance: onboard PLC, fieldbus communication, extra input/output or preset configurations such as a pump program for pressure regulation (constant pressure / variable flow). It integrates also onboard safety functions for compliance with SIL3/PLe.
Commander ID 300 offers customized solutions thanks to a modular concept. The wide choice of options and adaptations enables configuration in line with machine architecture. The system can also integrate an FFB brake for dynamic braking and /or a gearbox from the helical 3000 range, ensuring maximum adaptability. Extremely robust, Commander ID300 is an »easy-to-use» solution, ensuring quick and smooth operation.
