What is the objective of functional safety? The short answer is to minimise the risks posed by technical equipment to people and the environment. Functionally safe system solutions for machines and plants are based on consistent architecture right through to the mechanical interface. Certified hardware and software isare used to simplify project planning and the development of applications with safety solutions.
COMBIVERT F6 drives offer scalable safety functions directly in the drive controller – with or without encoders. Safety functions and limit values can be flexibly adjusted via digital I/Os and/or the “Safety over EtherCAT” (FSoE) or PROFIsafe safety profile.
- Available for the entire COMBIVERT F6 power range
- Safety functions that can be used with or without encoders
- Up to eight safety configurations per function
- For operating various motor technologies such as ASM, PM, IPM, SyncRel
- Safety functions certified to SIL 3 in accordance with IEC 61508, or to PL e in accordance with ISO 13849
- “Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE)” or PROFIsafe safety profile
- Fast release times

Rather than burning energy, why not harness it? With energy supply and recovery systems from our product range, machine and plant manufacturers are already optimising new machines during the design phase or creating a second phase of use for existing systems in retrofit manufacturing.
Save energy while reducing the installation workload at the same time. DC interconnection makes sure of this and more, while paving the way for exchanging energy with other frequency inverters. Only one AC power supply is required for the DC coupling. KEB’s drives are freely scalable and designed for universal use. This gives the user maximum efficiency and flexibility in the actual application. An added advantage is that eliminating braking resistors reduces heat build-up and ensures less space is needed in the control cabinet.
profile Position Mode CIA 402
The drive profile according to CiA402 provides a standardised platform for drive controller-based automation. This is achieved by means of the modes of operation specified in the profile, in particular also by the Profile Position Mode. The resulting relief of the PLC and cost optimisation with direct, undelayed access to the application enable economical and high-quality application solutions – consistent and manufacturer-independent.
SENSORLESS CONTROL (SCL/ASCL/ASiCL)
Sensorless closed-loop operation and maximum dynamics – without lowering speed during load fluctuations. This is made possible by KEB’s sensorless control methods ASCL (Asynchronous Sensorless Closed Loop) and SCL (Sensorless Closed Loop), regardless of whether asynchronous, synchronous, synchronous reluctance or IPM motors are involved. With ASiCL (Asynchronous single current closed loop), KEB also provides a complementary solution which ensures excellent shaft performance with high torque even in the low-speed range. The motor model also takes care of positioning during subordinate positioning tasks.
Whether for asynchronous, synchronous, synchronous reluctance or IPM motors: All types of motors can be controlled and operated highly dynamically without encoders by the COMBIVERT F6 or COMBIVERT S6 drive controllers at high speeds of up to 120,000 rpm using the ASCL or SCL method. Depending on individual requirements, this is possible with or without encoder. This means that nothing stands in the way of using motors in high-speed applications.
Whether warehouse logistics or cranes, speed and flexibility are essential in material handling. KEB ensures a smooth flow of goods and materials in this area.
For extrusion and injection moulding technologies, we offer hardware and software solutions out of one hand that ensure a high level of availability and torque accuracy.
KEB provides the food processing and packaging industry with robust components that are suitable for use in harsh environments.
KEB’s variable-speed frequency inverters create the perfect basis for treating and processing the renewable and carbon-neutral raw material, wood – in complete safety.
