JVL Integrated Motors Feature Fast and Easy Setup for Rockwell Automation/Allen-Bradley PLC

PRESS release: January 2019.

Birkerød, Denmark – After the successful introduction of the complete range of ServoStep integrated motors JVL is now releasing Add-On-Instructions for fast and easy setup and programming in Rockwell Automation’s Studio 5000 software.

All-in-one unit: Motor, Absolute multiturn encoder, Drive, Controller, PLC and Ethernet Switch as well as TÜV-approved STO option.  The integrated design with the controller in the motor minimizes the size of the control cabinet.  With less components in the cabinet, the cooling requirements will be lower, reducing both system cost and running costs.

JVL´s ServoStep motors offer state-of-the-art performance that in some applications can rival servo motors at a lower cost.  The high torque at low speeds make compact solutions without gear possible.  The ServoStep family offers up to double power in same size

compared to similar motors, due to higher current/voltage and advanced regulation.

JVL’s closed-loop ServoStep technology eliminates loss of steps and never stalls.  The technology causes a paradigm shift that changes your perception of what you can do with a stepper motor.  Ultra-high torque enables direct drive without gearing.  The motor

series also has current control, which lowers power consumption and allows 100% duty cycle without overheating.  The ultra-high step resolution of 409,600 step/rev decreases acoustic noise and results in a smooth-running motor.

The wide speed range from 0 to 3000 rpm can be adjusted in increments of 0.01 rpm.  Due to automatic tuning, programming is fast and easy.

The motors have 8 programmable inputs/outputs: each can be set up as digital input, digital output or analog input. Motors are equipped with EtherNet/IP interface and as option you can choose STO (Safe Torque Off) versions.

The motors are perfect for multi-axis applications and format adjustments where high positioning speed is required. Due to ultra-high torque, no gear is needed.

For end-of-line packaging and food and beverage applications enclosure class IP65 can be delivered.

To fulfil the demands for diagnostics and easy maintenance in factories of the future the motors are designed for IIoT and are Industry 4.0 ready.

The motors include a 2-port Ethernet switch to reduce wiring in daisy-chain configuration (DLR). Several LEDs enable technicians and operators to get a quick status overview.

To save time, Add-On-Instructions are available for Studio 5000. It makes commissioning fast and easy and the motors can be set up in 5 minutes or less.

Industrial Ethernet: 

The motors have the ability to be upgraded with other protocols or newer versions of the same protocol at any time. Because of the upgradeability, the JVL industrial Ethernet interface is also ‘future proof’ as newer versions of the protocols will always fit into the design. The user can switch between Profinet, EtherCAT, Powerlink, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP and SERCOS.

Ethernet in Motion Control to More than Triple by 2016

World Market for Industrial Communication Technologies in Motor Control Equipment

Reprint of March 13, 2013 Automation.com Article

March 13, 2013 – The use of Ethernet with motor drives and motion controllers will more than triple to 2016 from 1.8 million new connected nodes in 2011. According to IMS Research, the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for new motor control Ethernet nodes is projected to be the highest across the whole industrial space at nearly 30%.

IHS analyst, Tom Moore, commented “Ethernet, particularly certain industrial variants, is very well suited to drive and motion control applications. The growing number of Ethernet protocols, which are high-speed, deterministic, and low jitter, mean its application has never been easier. Some of the most suited protocols are forecast annual growth rates exceeding 30% to 2016”.

As Figure 1 shows, new Ethernet nodes are forecast to account for over 20% of the total new networked motor control products in 2016. This is a large increase from the estimated 12% in 2011, when fieldbus protocols dominated new node connections. Ethernet is quickly gaining ground in a market that is well known for being reserved and slow to adopt new technology.

Moore continued, “Part of the transition to Ethernet is due to the protocols available, such as PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, POWERLINK and EtherCAT, which are all very well suited to motor control applications. In particular, EtherCAT is well known for very high speed data transmission and low response times. Its adoption is forecast to grow very strongly to 2016, especially as its member count continues to increase.”

Networking, however, isn’t just about the technology or protocols on offer; it is about the equipment itself. Nodes, the connections to the higher network, are set to increase and part of this is being driven by an increasing number of ports per device. This has an added affect to the adoption growth of networking technologies. “The increase in node count has come about for several reasons,” indicated Moore. “More and more products are being released with the ability to daisy-chain, requiring at least 2 ports.”

Ethernet is certainly making headway in the industrial space and its projected adoption growth is set to outstrip that of fieldbus technologies in almost all applications. “It is forecast that in 10 to 15 years Ethernet will have replaced fieldbus as the mainstream networking technology for motor control products.” says Moore, “This can only be good for the unification and simplification of networking solutions; driving down costs and increasing up-time”.

“The World Market for Industrial Ethernet and Fieldbus Technologies – 2013 Edition” is now available. This includes extensive analysis of industrial Ethernet and fieldbus technologies used in motor control, process and control and discrete control.
