Presented on September 23, the new AxiaVert Series from Bonfiglioli offers a combination of flexibility, modularity, and connectivity to provide a fitted answer to specific industrial application requirements across a broad range of sectors and with different degrees of complexity. AxiaVert is now available in 4 sizes, with a power range between 0.25 and 15 kW.
In addition, thanks to condition monitoring functions on the key inverter components as well as on the gearmotor critical parameters, AxiaVert is able to provide real time diagnostics, energy optimization and predictive maintenance information related to the motion system up to the entire machine. The advanced digital and open communication protocols, complying with automation and Industry 4.0 standards, allow a smooth integration into automation networks, thanks to the compatibility with a great variety of fieldbus protocols and machine controllers. Communication encryption is embedded by design in AxiaVert to ensure secure communication.
To select the most suitable option in terms of costs and performance, AxiaVert proposes a wide range of advanced integrated functional safety functions in compliance with EN ISO 13849-1 and IEC 61508 international standards. This approach simplifies configuration and reduces the need for external safety components, while ensuring a safe and controlled operation of different movements (e.g. lifting applications), thanks to Safe Brake Control and fast spindle axes with Safe Limited Speed, even sensorless.
Thanks to its modular structure and PLC software programmability, the system can be flexibly adapted and customized by defining the proper software parameters and functions, and selecting the most suitable hardware modules, such as communication or encoder modules, variants and accessories. In addition, the AxiaVert Series offers a wide variety of frame and power sizes, mounting variants and cooling concepts for greater freedom of design.
Great process versatility is ensured by the high compatibility with a wide range of motors (asynchronous, synchronous, synchronous reluctance) and by its high speed, position and torque control accuracy, both for open and closed loop applications.
Finally, user-friendliness is ensured by AxiaManager engineering software for programming, commissioning, operation and monitoring of AxiaVert. AxiaManager is available as a Windows PC GUI and as a mobile App for an instant access to the drive status and configuration with a simplified user interface.
