MAGNETOCODE Heavy Duty Encoders

MAGNETOCODE Heavy Duty Encoders

The compact magnetic heavy duty encoders are available in a stainless steel and a cost-efficient steel version with different interfaces. Special constructive features ensure up to IP69K protection throughout the long lifetime of the encoder. Combined with the sturdy ball bearings these sensors offer an ideal choice for reliable measurements under extreme environmental conditions such as great temperature fluctuations, high humidity, high-pressure water or salty liquids (according DIN EN ISO 9227 >240 hrs). Whereas the stainless steel encoders can also be used in the offshore and food industry the cost efficient steel version is perfectly suited for the demands of mobile machines.

EtherCAT-based SPiiPlus Soft Control Platform From ACS Turns Standard PCs Into Powerful Multi-axis Machine Controllers With Software Alone

EtherCAT-based SPiiPlus Soft Control Platform From ACS Turns Standard PCs Into Powerful Multi-axis Machine Controllers With Soft

ACS Motion Control, an international manufacturer of advanced multi-axis motion and machine control systems, has developed a software-based EtherCAT motion control platform that maximizes performance while minimizing costs for semiconductor, HDD, biomedical, PV equipment and LED manufacturers. The SPiiPlusSC (Soft Controller) enables standard PCs to run a 64-axis real-time motion controller and high-speed PLC entirely in software. The advanced soft controller solution simplifies the connectivity of the entire motion control system by eliminating dedicated controller hardware as well as Windows dependence or latency.

Parker releases I31 EtherCAT fieldbus option

Parker releases I31 EtherCAT field bus option

The high-performance motion-bus networkis now installed in Compax3 servo drives.

Parker’s Electromechanical Automation Division, a leading supplier of motion controltechnology, is pleased to announce the release of its EtherCAT fieldbusoption.

EtherCAT is an open, real-time, high-speedmotion-bus network that operates over fast Ethernet at 100 Mbit. It isa fast-growing industrial network and, similar to other Ethernet-basedmotion-bus networks, it offers speeds that are faster than DeviceNet, ModbusTCPand Profibus.

Customers Demand Networked Rotary Encoders

Customers Demand Networked Rotary Encoders

Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI), announces its full selection of networked size 25 (2.5” diameter, or 63mm) rotary encoders. These heavy duty rotary sensors can provide an overall measuring range of up to 30 bits, and are available for EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, Profibus, or DeviceNet communication. With both single-turn and multi-turn versions available, AMCI’s networked encoders are ready for any application.

The Need for Variety

AMCI has recognized the need for absolute rotary encoders that can communicate with a variety of different network protocols. With so many PLC manufacturers in the market, OEMs and Control System Integrators require flexibility when designing their control systems. AMCI continues to expand its rotary encoder offering to include these required network protocol compatibilities.

EtherCAT for JVL integrated servo motors

EtherCAT for JVL integrated servo motors

JVL is one of the leading companies in the field of integrated servo and stepper motors. For their medium and high power MAC motor’s, from 400 W to 3000 W, yet another expansion module has been added: The EtherCAT Industrial Ethernet module.

To supplement the already existing modules like CANopen, Profibus, Devicenet, NanoPLC, BlueTooth and WLAN etc. was there a demand from the market to develop a new series of Industrial Ethernet modules starting with EtherCAT and EtherNet/IP. Later ProfiNet, Modbus TCP, Powerlink or Sercos III will be announced.
