The Indramat DKC01.3-100-7-FW drive is in the Type 3 family of Ecodrives. These servo drives offered an updated alternative to the Type 1 Ecodrive, and boasted versatility for use in a wide range of applications. The Type 3 Ecodrive series featured a couple of significant improvements over the Type 1 series.
The first key improvement with the Type 3 series is the external firmware module. Type 1 DKC drives have built-in firmware that must be disassembled to change. External firmware allows for quick and seamless replacement and reconfiguration.
The other important feature that set the Type 3 Ecodrive family apart from Type 1 drives is the modular I/O (BGR card). This allowed for a single spare drive power section with multiple I/O, which eliminates the need for multiple spare drives.
Your Indramat DKC01.3-100-7-FW drive is the 100 ampere version. Indramat also offered Type 3 drives in a 40 amp and a 200 amp rating.
Replacing a DKC01.3-100-7-FW drive
Indramat servo drives almost never fail. If your servos stop working, and you’re seeing Indramat drive error codes, the first thing that you should do is see what’s causing the error. An error code doesn’t always indicate that your drive is no longer working. More often than not, once you fix the underlying problem, and clear the error, your drive will continue to function.
