IndraDrive Mi: Independent universal talent with new cooling possibilities

Rexroth expands the range of applications of its IndraDrive Mi control cabinet-free drive system with additional cooling types for mains and supply modules.

Rexroth has already successfully moved the entire drive technology from the control cabinet to the machine. In addition to the IndraDrive Mi motor-integrated and motor-near drives, the company has developed decentralized supply and mains modules that allow machine manufacturers to install all electrical drive components directly on the machine. Now Rexroth has equipped these modules with new cooling options for a wide range of production environments and, in doing so, also expanded the range of applications.

The control cabinet-free IndraDrive Mi drive system allows for the realization of a completely independent drive solution. The supply unit that can be directly integrated into the machine makes this possible. Rexroth has now equipped these mains and supply modules with additional cooling options. Convection cooling and forced air cooling options are now also available in addition to the thermal interface for cold plate mounting or insulated mounting. These two types of cooling do not require any process water for cooling and allow for flexible use in a wide range of production environments. Applications for which no process water is available, such as in conveying or handling technology, in food and packaging technology or also to some extent in the printing and wood industry, do not require any additional recooling when using these new cooling options.

All mains connection components that were previously placed in the control cabinet are now realized in IP65 in the IndraDrive Mi and can be directly installed in the machine. The mains filter, mains choke and mains contactor are integrated in the KNK03 mains module to supply direct power from the grid. The regenerative KMV03 power supply module with control electronics, braking resistor and brake transistor has completely replaced the power supply and the control electronics in the control cabinet.

Multi-Axis Control NY4114: High-performance with IT standards for Industry 4.0

Rexroth is expanding its portfolio of high-performance controls that are common in the semiconductor industry by adding an open, Linux-based version. The Motion Control NY4114 uses additional IT standards, such as the Eclipse development environment with programming in C languages and open Ethernet-based communication in horizontally and vertically networked Industry 4.0 environments. The modular, multi-axis control performs position control of servo and stepper motors extremely fast at 32 kHz and, at the same time, processes extensive I/O signals.
