Beckhoff Automation demonstrated its new AMP8000 distributed servo drive system alongside its lineup of automation hardware, software and networking solutions at PACK EXPO 2018. The AMP8000 distributed servo drive system promotes advanced motion control architectures that are cost-effective, highly efficient and easily adjustable through dramatic reductions in electronics, mechanical hardware and cabling. By combining a servo drive and servomotor into one device, the AMP8000 system reduces overall packaging machine footprint and space requirements inside control cabinets and enclosures. 

Requiring no alterations to exisitng machines, the AMP800 has power ranges from 0.61 to 1.23 kW and standstill torque rating from 2.00 to 4.8 Nm at an F4 flang size or power rating from 1.02 to 1.78 kW and standstill torque rating from 4.10 to 9.7 Nm with an F5 flange. The servo drive system also represents Beckhoff's commitment to promoting safety technology in all areas via integrated STO and SS1 safety functions.
