2 Copyright © 2009 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 2 MP-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

3 Copyright © 2009 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 3 Silver Series Overview Rockwell Automation is committed to supplying best-in-class products. This involves periodic enhancements to meet the needs of our customers We will give advance notice of product lifecycle actions to our customers to allow for their planning Rockwell Automation will offer support services to our customers throughout the lifecycle

All rights reserved. 4 MP-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.

5 Copyright © 2009 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 5 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-SJ22AA becomes MPL-A330P-SJ72AA –DIN cables are used with these motorsbayonet 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. –MPL-x4520x-… servo motors have not been released with DIN connectors due to low demand. The axis should be resized with a MPL-x4530x- or MPL-x430x- motor. –Power cable size: some recommendations have changed. Notify: –Your customers of this change for their support planning –Your service department of this change for their planning

6 Copyright © 2009 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 6 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

7 Copyright © 2009 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 7 Supporting Motors on your Machine - You Buy New DIN Motors and Cables When you need to replace a motor, purchase motors and cables with the new DIN connectors –Easy; the connector digit in the catalog numbers changes from a 2 to a 7 Example: MPL-A330P-SJ22AA becomes MPL-A330P-SJ72AA –DIN cables are used with these motorsbayonet 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. –MPL-x4520x-… servo motors have not been released with DIN connectors due to low sales. The axis should be resized with a MPL-x4530x- or MPL-x430x- motor. –Power cable size: some recommendations have changed. This action is only needed when a motor needs to be replaced ! Silver Series announcements are not a call to upgrade your machine.

8 Copyright © 2009 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 8 Supporting Motors 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

9 Copyright © 2009 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 9 Additional Resources MP-Series Low Inertia servo motor Silver Series correspondence. Motor-cable compatibility spreadsheet. –Pairs DIN motors with DIN cables, transition cables, and other accessories –DIN Motor Cable Quick Reference xls (embedded in this document) –Use this until the resource, below, is published General Motion Control Selection Guide –Updated in January, 2010 Rockwell Automation Silver Series website –www.ab.com/silverwww.ab.com/silver

10 Copyright © 2009 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 10 Summary Rockwell Automation changes products to Silver Series status to allow our customers time to prepare for life cycle actions to products. The MP-Series motors have been enhanced with DIN style connectors, and the motors with bayonet style connectors will be discontinued on 1 December Rockwell Automation has numerous support services and plans for customers using the bayonet style motors. Special products have been released by the business to help support motors installed on machines. Contact your Allen-Bradley distributor or Rockwell Automation sales office for more details and support.
