Motor Controller uses international interfaces.

Press Release Summary:

Compact Ecodrive DKC 16 uses standard interfaces, including SERCOS, DeviceNet, Profibus, Interbus-S, and CANopen. Installation is quick and easy because of plug connections, direct power connection that eliminates need for power transformer, and integrated bleeder resistor and electronic brake control that minimize need for external components. Unit works with company's MKD motor, for standard applications, and MKE motor for hazardous environments.

New DKC 16 Controller Extends Ecodrive Series to Low Power Range

The Ecodrive DKC 16 controller from Bosch Rexroth's Electric and Controls division offers the benefits of larger high controllers in an efficient, compact and easy-to-install design.

The new compact Rexroth DKC 16 controller extends the Ecodrive series to the lower power range. The controller's small, compact size provides the benefits of a larger high power controller in an efficient, lower cost design with high power density and UL certification.

Installing the DKC 16 is quick and easy, thanks to plug connections and direct power connection, eliminating the power transformer. Also, integrated bleeder resistor and electronic brake control minimize other external components.

The DKC 16 uses interfaces based on international standards, including SERCOS, DeviceNet, Profibus, Interbus-S, and CANopen.

Several motors are designed to work with the DKC 16, including the MKD for standard applications and the MKE for hazardous environments. All motors feature an electronic nameplate, minimizing assembly and commissioning times.
