Evaluation Kit SOMANET Node SAFETY

Request Quote


This System Kit serves the evaluation of SOMANET Node Safety servo drives. It combines an assembled and industry-grade tested SOMANET Node Safety and all required accessories. This Kit allows you to test SOMANET with permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM/BLDC) of various sizes and integrate them as slaves in your EtherCAT system.

Please note this Kit is not for multi-axis setups or volume purchases. Refer to Product Page for SOMANET Node Safety to purchase quantities larger than 1.

SOMANET Node: Meet the most compact and flexible embedded EtherCAT Servo Drives.

  • Highly efficient model-predictive, field-oriented motor control software with advanced compensation of unwanted physical effects in drive (e.g. cogging)
  • EtherCAT or Ethernet communication (Profinet, SERCOS III, CAN, RS-485, WiFi and Bluetooth available on demand)
  • DS402 position, speed and torque/current control loops
  • High-res, high-speed ADCs for precise current and voltage measurements
  • Advanced protection circuitry
  • Control feedback through encoders and additional sensors via Hall, QEI/ABI/ABZ (RS-422), BiSS-C (RS-422), SSI, SPI, I2C and analog interfaces

Applications for the Evaluation Kit SOMANET Node include for example:

  • Traditional Robotic Arms
  • Collaborative Robotic Arms
  • Automated Guided Vehicles
  • Service Robots
  • Conveyor Belts
  • Special Machinery
