Series Low Inertia Motor Enhancements


Numerous customer requests and market research culminated in the launch of new MP
-
Series products with “DIN” style connectors


You are now able to use a single cable family for all premium Rockwell Automation servo
motors and actuators.


Ease of use: Connectors can be positioned without tools into the desired orientation


Simplicity: Integration of brake and power into a single cable eliminates a discrete brake cable


Enhanced durability


The implementation began with MP
-
Series Food Grade motors in late 2003


With product launches in 2008 and 2009, the entire MP
-
Series line is available with
these enhanced connectors

Series Low Inertia Motors

Lifecycle change to motors with bayonet connectors


The Kinetix business unit is changing the lifecycle status of the original
MP
-
Series servo motors,
with bayonet connectors only,

effective
immediately, to “Silver Series.”


The newly
-
launched MP
-
Series Low Inertia (MPL) motors with (DIN)
connectors are not affected by this announcement


The products with bayonet connectors will be available for sale through
normal channels until December 1, 2010 (the “Silver Date”). Production
of these products will cease after this date.


The new motors with DIN connectors provide functionality identical to the
original motors with bayonet style connectors


Refurbishment services are planned, pending availability of component
parts, for 7 years following the “Silver Date.”


This document summarizes the steps needed for customers to support
their installed base of motors with bayonet connectors.

Customers building new machines


Migrate your machine design to the new “DIN” connector motors


Easy; the connector digit in the catalog numbers changes from a “2” to a “7”


Example: MPL
-
A330P
-
SJ
2
2AA becomes MPL
-
A330P
-
SJ
7
2AA


DIN cables are used with these motors

bayonet cables are not compatible


Verify:


Dimensions: In some cases, they may have increased slightly from the original versions.
Ensure that this will not result in interferences in the machine.

Supporting Motors on your Machine
-

You maintain a stock of bayonet motors


Identify the MP
-
Series Low Inertia (MPL) bayonet servo motors on your
machine


Analyze the service history of the machine


Estimate the number of motors required over the life of the machine


Plan on Rockwell Automation refurbishment services for up to 7 years


Execute a plan to acquire the required number of motors


Last time buy, and/ or


Parts Management Agreement (PMA)


Note that the advanced exchange services are not available for all catalog numbers
nor are motors guaranteed to be in stock


Advantages:


You have the motor WHEN IT IS NEEDED


The motor is compatible with the cables on your machine

Alternate Methods

Rockwell Automation recognizes that in the future:


Exact motor replacements may not be available


Repair services may not be feasible in some circumstances


Pulling new cables through your machine may not be practical

Rockwell Automation has released special products to maximize the
uptime on your machine



Use equivalent new DIN MPL motors with “Transition Cables”


These 0.5m cables bridge from the installed cables to the new DIN motor


Offer fast replacement with the current MPL motor line


IP66 rated and part of the EMC Declaration of Conformity (DoC)



Purchase and Install DIN Connector Kits


This requires a skilled operator and special tools


Fitting the connector kits can be challenging and time consuming


Not an option for motors fitted with holding brakes
