Variable speed drives for high performance Unidrive M600 and Unidrive M700 offer significant enhancements over Unidrive SP. Improvements have been made to performance, hardware, programming and software.
Compatible physical dimensions, weights and surface mount footprint
When retrofitting surface mount drives, existing mounting holes can be reused - negating the need for additional drilling. Mounting holes are in the same place or retrofit kits are available
Power and control wiring adopt the same philosophy as Unidrive SP
The same menu and parameter structure is adopted by Unidrive M
Unidrive M connect can be used to transfer parameters from Unidrive SP to Unidrive M
Unidrive M600 and M700 improve productivity with enhanced motor control algorithms which are combined with the latest microprocessor technology
More than double the current loop bandwidth for demanding performance applications
New sensorless control of permanent magnet motors for applications that require maximum efficiency and reduced motor size
Maximize machine throughput with an onboard Advanced Machine Controller (AMC) which can be easily set up to deliver faster, more precise, dynamic machine operation
Integrated dual port Ethernet switch which supports Ethernet I/P as well as standard Ethernet open protocols such as TCP/IP and UDP
RTMoE (Real Time Motion over Ethernet) provides synchronized communication between drives using the Precision Time Protocol as defined by IEEE1588 V2
Faster switching frequencies of up to 16 kHz in systems up to 160 kW (250 hp) and 8 kHz in systems up to 250 kW (400 hp)
MCi200 and MCi210 options provide advanced second processors to execute PLC programs for multi-axis machine control. Programs can be created quickly and easily using Machine Control Studio
Unidrive M supports standard SD cards for cloning and backing up parameters and application programs
Keypads are equipped with multi-lingual real-text displays to provide faster, easier programming with helpful descriptions of diagnostic information and drive parameters
SI-Applications modules compile and run SyPTPro application programs. This assists the migration of standalone applications as well as Unidrive SPs that form part of a CTNet or CTSync network
Unidrive M has a menu and programming structure that is consistent with Unidrive SP
Parameter sets can be transferred from SP to M using the Unidrive M Connect software tool and Smartcards
Higher power range – Unidrive M modular systems can now reach 2.8 MW with up to 250 kW in a single power module
A low switching frequency of 2 kHz can be selected to maximize the output power of large drives
Unidrive M’s DC bus schemes use a dedicated bus bar arrangement for side-by-side mounting and can eliminate the need for many power input components
Unidrive M has conformal coated PCBs to ensure increased resilience in harsh environments
Greater onboard encoder connection flexibility eliminates the need to purchase additional encoder or resolver option modules. Universal encoder port has been extended to enable two inputs, more encoder types and a simulated encoder output
Higher power density with more compact drives
A new low power standby mode to reduce energy usage when Unidrive M is idle
Unidrive M702 has a dual channel SIL3/PLe ‘Safe Torque Off’ (STO) input
Unidrive M is capable of fully replacing and enhancing Unidrive SP installations. Therefore, Unidrive SP is moving into next stage of its lifecycle.
Unidrive SP entered the maintenance period in 2017, volume production has now ceased, but contractual obligations regarding warranty, service and repairs will continue.
The maintenance period is expected to last ten years subject to raw material and component availability. Updates will be issued to customers throughout the lifecycle period. Local sales representatives are always available to answer any customer queries.
