Dunkermotoren solution officially certified by PROFIBUS user organisation
Dunkermotoren has, it reports, become the first drive technology manufacturer to integrate certified PROFINET with PROFIdrive. This means that another important feature is now fully integrated into the motor, which is hailed as “a milestone in terms of cabling, commissioning and IIoT capability”.
The certification assures Dunkermotoren that the high standards of stability, even under extreme bus conditions, are always maintained. Currently, the products BG 95 dPro, BG 75 dPro, BG 66 dPro and the BGE 5510 dPro are available with PROFINET interface, covering the output power from 1 to 4000 W.
Brushless and brushed DC motors
The Dunkermotoren portfolio includes brushless and brushed DC motors, as well as linear systems and AC motors. Since the beginning of 2020, the portfolio has been expanded by sister company MAE to include stepper motors and blowers. All components can be expanded in a modular system by gearboxes, encoders, brakes and integrated or external electronics to form the complete drive.
Since March this year, the Donaueschingen-based automation specialist EGS Automation has also been part of Dunkermotoren, further strengthening the position of both companies in the field of industrial automation.
