– Product Identification –
The affected products are:
 Kinetix 6200 2094-SE02F-M00-S1 Sercos Safe Speed Control Module. Firmware versions through 1.050. Manufacturing date up to and including date code 2003, or third week of 2020.
 Kinetix 6500 2094-EN02D-M01-S1 Multi-Axis Safe Speed Control Module. Firmware versions through 3.005. Manufacturing date up to and including date code 2003, or third week of 2020.
Note – If you are using an S1 (safe speed) drive, but not using the S1 functionality, you are not affected. Rockwell Automation recommends following the corrective actions in this document for possible future implementations using this functionality.
Important – Product nameplates and carton labels will show the as shipped firmware release version. For installed product, the firmware may have been field updated. Prior to taking any action, you should verify the installed version of firmware using an online tool such as Rockwell Automation RSLinx®.
For product still in its shipping carton, the product identification information can be found on the product’s carton label. The catalog number will be in the CAT field, the firmware revision will be in the FRN field, and the manufacturing date code will be in the DATE field.
In the example shown to the left, the catalog number is 2094-EN02D-M01-S0, the firmware revision is 3.003, and the manufacturing date code is 2002, or the second week of 2020. The catalog number of this example ends in S0, which is not included in the Product Identification section. This image is provided as an example only and is not subject to this notification.

– Description –
A potential anomaly exists with the Kinetix 6200 and 6500 Safe Speed Control Modules. Under the following conditions, a short duration of unexpected motion may occur followed by a fault condition.
Rockwell Automation analysis has determined that this anomaly can happen if the axis goes from moving to zero speed within 1 Overspeed Response Time cycle (per the drive’s safety configuration) prior to the Safe Stop 1 or Safe Stop 2 request.
Important – This anomaly was found during testing. Product safety functionality is not affected by this anomaly.
– Temporary Workarounds –
Until corrective actions can be implemented, the following action should be taken:
1. Change the Stop Category of the drive to Safe Torque-Off.
Important – The requirements to mitigate this anomaly vary by application. Contact Rockwell Automation Technical Support for application related questions. Reference this Product Notice PN 2020-01-001 when requesting support. Any temporary workarounds must be tested and confirmed prior to release to production.
– Correction –
Correction requires upgrading firmware. When available, product firmware may be downloaded from the Rockwell Automation Product Compatibility and Download Center (PCDC).
 Access the PCDC at https://compatibility.rockwellautomation.com/Pages/MultiProductDownload.aspx?crumb=112.
