Remote Access to Schneider PLCs

This article will review how to gain remote access to Schneider PLCs. Learn how to configure a KEB C6 Industrial Router and setup a VPN connection to a Schneider PLC. Specifically, we will connect to a TM251ESE PLC using an Ethernet connection but the same process can be used for other models of Schneider PACs.  It is also possible to remote program Schneider PLC’s with a serial connection, however, this will not be covered in this blog post.   The necessary hardware and software programs are : Combivis Connect C6 VPN Router Schneider TM2511MESE PLC SoMachine 4.3 System Architecture  ...

Drive Functional safety for machinery doors, gates, and latches

Safe Speed Monitor (SSM) with level f=0Hz is a TÜV-certified safety function available in KEB’s drive portfolio.  It is used to quickly stop an inertia load and ensures the motor is stopped before providing an output back to the safety controller.  It is commonly referred to as a safety gate or safety latch function where an operator is frequently opening an access door on the machine.  This post gives an overview of using the SSM function in the KEB G6 drive in a sample saw application.   What is SSM and why is it needed? KEB has a long history...

The Basics of Motion Control: Indexing

KEB has been a leader in motion control design and engineering for nearly fifty years. Automated systems need more than a motor, power supply, and brake. Motion control components – like drives, embedded control devices, and logic controllers – are an integral part of automated manufacturing and material handling.       In this article about the basics of motion control I will review the indexing component of motion control. Every task assigned to a machine will have an index – or move – that it needs to complete the job. What are some typical indexing types and applications, and...

VFD Application Notes: Flying Start and KEB’s Speed Search Technology

In this series of blog posts, we will look at some special functions available in KEB drives – like the F5 VFD or S6 Servo Drive.   In this post we will discuss the Speed Search or “Flying Start” function.   What is Speed Search/Flying Start?   Typical motor control applications utilizing a variable frequency drive (VFD) start the motor from zero speed. The VFD then controls the motor to the specified set speed using acceleration and deceleration rates as defined in the drive.   It is possible that application conditions may result in the motor rotating while the VFD...

Motor thermal protection

Thermal winding protection for motors is a key component in operational automated equipment. This creates a level of protection against excessive winding temperature that could eventually lead to permanent winding insulation breakdown and failure.  EASA has a nice page with some good pictures of typical motor failures – you don’t want this to be you.   Let’s visit a hypothetical example – a manufacturing company utilizes a servo motor on a new assembly machine. The machine begins running well but then the company decides they need faster output so the motor’s duty cycle is increased. Over some time, the higher...

Regen Drives for Cranes and Hoists

A crane hoist is a prime application example of a motor that cycles back and forth between motoring and generating mode?  When the crane lifts a load, electrical energy is delivered from the utility to the motor and it goes into “motoring mode”.  As the load is lifted, potential energy is stored in the system.  The amount stored depends on the mass of the load and how high it is lifted.   Eventually, when the load is lowered – the motor goes into “generating mode” and the energy from the mechanical system flows back into the VFD in the form of...
