EtherNet/IP vs EtherCAT – Machine builders doing Motion Control

One critical decision that machine builders must make is what industrial protocol to use.  The 2 most common industrial protocols that I personally come across are EtherNet/IP™ and EtherCAT.  EtherNet/IP because of its prevalence in North America and EtherCAT because that is the protocol that KEB has standardized on and many machine builders in our served industries are adopting it in some capacity. This post compares these two industrial protocols from the lens of a machine builder performing synchronized motion control.  I find that it is usually helpful to look at extremes and synchronized multi-axis motion control is an extreme...

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...
