Dunkermotoren, a brand of Ametek, has recently certified the EtherNet/IP Industrial Ethernet interface.
Since 2021, EtherNet/IP has been available for all DC servo motors with dPro functionality as well as the BGE 5510 external control electronics. Back in September 2022, the BG 95 represented the dPro family of products as it passed the function test at ODVA and the motor received the "Declaration of Conformity". In December 2022, the "Interoperability Test" was then carried out at Plugfest and the BG 95 passed this test as well, so that the "Declaration of Conformity" can now be viewed on the ODVA website.
With these steps, Dunkermotoren has completely integrated another feature into the motor. EtherNet/IP is available for all BG 45 dPro, BG 66 dPro, BG 75 dPro, BG 95 dPro, and the external controller BGE 5510 dPro in the EI version, covering the complete portfolio up to 5 KW output power. The motors are part of Dunkermotoren's modular system and can be combined with suitable gearboxes, encoders, and brakes. Standard combinations are available from single piece quantities, with further customer-specific adaptations for larger projects. All dPro drives with Industrial Ethernet include the STO Safety Function as a standard. Beyond the hardware, all nexofox IIoT features can be used with the dPro motors as well.
Thanks to the EtherNet/IP certification, motors from Dunkermotoren can easily be integrated into EtherNet/IP networks and work seamlessly together with Rockwell Automation controllers.
