ECOVARIO - the variable system

Because of its big variety of features the ECOVARIO servo drive is the solution for a broad range of motion and drive applications.

The servo amplifier series ECOVARIO covers a power range between 1,2 kW and 10 kW and 1-axis or 2-axes servo amplifier.

ECOVARIO is suitable for operation of 2- or 3-phase synchronous servo motors, DC motors and EC motors. ECOVARIO offers a large variety of interfaces and functionality. Standardized field bus options such as EtherCAT and other leading field bus systems ensure a fast system integration. Customer specific enhancements are possible.

ECOVARIO offers the following features:

  • Digital current, speed, and position control with position, speed and torque limiting
  • Position feedback via incremental encoder (RS-422, SINCOS) as well as via absolute value encoder (SSI, BISS, HIPERFACE or EnDat)
  • Simultaneous use of several feedback systems
  • Digital filter functions effective on resonant loads
  • Parameterisable jerk filters for optimization of the motion profiles
  • Short-circuit, voltage, temperature, encoder, tracking error, and i2xt monitoring
  • Parameterisation and setpoint setting via EtherCAT, Ethernet, RS-232, RS-485 and other leading field bus systems
  • Eight digital inputs and three digital outputs
  • Scalable analogue input for any setpoint
  • Intelligent control of a holding brake with automatic voltage reduction
  • Limit switch and reference sensor evaluation, various homing modes
  • Enabling of output stage and reset of fault conditions via digital input
  • Readiness for operation message via digital output
  • Status indication and setting of the field bus node address and baud rate on the front via display and two keys
  • free programmable sequences for realisation of individual control and operation concepts

ECOVARIO has received UL/CSA approbation.

Our technology functions support among others:

  • Synchronization, electronic gear unit
  • Flying cut/Flying saw
  • Winder
  • Register control
  • Marking
  • Labeling
  • Fast position sensing
  • Master synchronous positioning
  • Interpolation via EtherCAT
  • Gantry systems

The ECOVARIO philosophy guarantees perfect control of low-cost steppers with encoder as well as of high-quality servo motors with multiturn encoders.
