IIoT, High Speed and more – KEB Automation at sps 2023

Exclusively on site: New drives, new brakes, new solutions for your application

For KEB Automation, the motto of the sps 2023 was #MakeYourAutomationWork. This applies to our various trade fair highlights, whether the new industrial IoT platform NOA, high-speed solutions in drive technology or patented brakes for servo applications. Thank you for visiting our stand at the trade fair.

On this page we give you an impression of some of this year's trade fair highlights that we have presented to you.

Our trade fair highlights



Create intuitive HMIs quickly and easily that are truly responsive and independent of platforms and end devices thanks to modern web technology - with HELIO. The innovative HMI management system from KEB Automation and HMI Project provides well thought-out templates that already include professional interface design out-of-the-box. Not only is the result easy to use, HELIO itself is fast and easy to learn and thus helps to significantly reduce development costs. For users, the motto is: configuring instead of programming.

More about HELIO


Premiere: High-speed drives

For the first time, we presented our new high-speed drives – live at the sps. The drives are available in four housing sizes and have an output of 30 to 450 kW. Realise your high-speed application and benefit from high output frequencies of up to 2,000 Hz. The drives are available as liquid- and air-cooled versions and are optionally equipped with a special 3C3 coating for use in harsh environmental conditions. Implement high speeds in your application easily – from small machining spindles to turbo compressors.


Fast commissioning, reduced costs

Faults, such as programming errors in the control code, can always occur during commissioning. To prevent this in advance, KEB Automation offers detailed firmware simulation models of its own inverters for download in the TwinStore. The models can reduce the time required for commissioning by up to 90 percent.

Open automation platform

For KEB, IIoT is more than just a buzzword. We implement the Industrial Internet of Things for machine and plant engineering as a complete solution: with NOA (Next Open Automation). This is a new, open platform based on microservices. It offers the possibility to design your own automation solutions. In addition to hardware and software products from KEB, the concept can be easily expanded. NOA will be available from 2024 and with HELIO, the X1 Panel and the C6 COMPACT controller, three exciting options are already available for your automation.

  • HELIO: The new management system for the next generation of machine and plant visualisation.
  • C6 COMPACT 3: Small dimensions, big performance – the embedded control for applications with low to medium complexity.
  • C6 X1 HMI Panel: Equipped with IP67 protection class and Power over Ethernet (PoE). The panel is designed for operating temperatures from -20 to 55 degrees Celsius.


Powerful brakes and our 2-in-1 motor

At this year's sps, we presented two brake innovations for the servo motor at the same time: the very compact and powerful COMBIPERM P2 permanent magnet brake with friction-locking, backlash-free action. In addition, the COMBISTOP S1 is celebrating its premiere at the trade fair – a powerful spring-applied brake with fail-safe functionalities. For users of asynchronous geared motors we offer another innovation: motors in the power range from 0.37 kW to 7.5 kW, in which decentralised frequency inverters are directly integrated in the motor construction kit.

  • COMBIPERM P2: The brake is characterised by a compact design and requires comparatively little power with increased performance. Due to its construction, it can be used at temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius.
  • COMBISTOP S1: With the S1, high torque can be realised in a small space. In addition, many emergency stops are possible with the brake.
  • Motors with integrated inverter: Easy installation, compact design and high performance are good reasons for using the innovative 2-in-1 solution from KEB.
