The nexofox BGE 5510 dPro makes every motor a smart motor


BGE5510Under the nexofox umbrella, the BGE 5510 dPro external electronics can be used for all motors no matter the manufacturer. Nexofox is the IIoT brand of Dunkermotoren and, thus, it is part of AMETEK. The electronics support all common communication interfaces including CANOpen, PROFINET, EtherCAT, and Ethernet/IP as well as safety functions like STO.

Furthermore, all nexofox features can be used for any type and brand of BLDC and DC motors, thus turning any motor into a smart motor. Standard nexofox features include MotionCode as a free programming tool and IIoT functionalities such as cloud-based condition monitoring with SmartDiagnostics. This allows extensive applications to be implemented directly on the controllers themselves. One example is ZeroPLC, where the name says it all - the entire application is implemented directly on the BGE 5510 dPro with MotionCode, which reduces the bus traffic and, in some applications, makes a separate PLC superfluous – thus, ZeroPLC often also means zero cost.

A look into the near future promises even more - both on the software and hardware side. In the software department, extensions for SmartDiagnostics are already set to be released, such as the interaction between controller and SmartphoneApp or even a remote oscilloscope. The expansion of the MotionCode development environment to include more and more new features, which will make programming even easier is also being driven forward steadily. In terms of hardware, the BGE 5560 dPro with a power range of up to 60 A continuous current as well as suitable module solutions for both controllers have already been announced and are scheduled to be launched as early as 2023. This way, an even broader power and application spectrum can be covered in the future.

In addition to pure hardware and software, nexofox also provides the necessary support for the commissioning or tuning of all motors on the BGE 5510. More service features include training courses around the parameterization and instructions for proper implementation of MotionCode
