4-Axis Stepper Controller with Ethernet Connectivity

4-Axis Stepper Controller with Ethernet Connectivity from Arcus Technology


The PMX-4ET-SA is a user-friendly 4-axis stepper controller featuring advanced interpolation and Ethernet connectivity. Encoder feedback inputs allow the controller to automatically monitor and maintain the position of a stepper motor. It can be interfaced with any stepper driver that accepts pulse (6M pps) and direction signals. The PMX-4ET-SA can also be used to control digital servo drives.

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.

Improved Ethernet/IP Encoders

Improved Ethernet/IP Encoders

Ethernet/IP (Ethernet Industrial Protocol based on OSI model) is a comprehensive interface technology comprised of an open communication protocol at the application layer, Ethernet at the physical layer and Internet protocol at the network layer. Unlike other networks, Ethernet/IP is a full duplex, Star topology based active infrastructure featuring virtually unlimited number of nodes. In addition, multivendor interoperability enables flexible designs which are easy to setup, operate, maintain and expand. POSITAL Ethernet/IP encoder is a well developed and proven Ethernet solution suitable for real time applications with large sensor network, requiring efficient yet time critical data “anytime and anywhere”. The internal diagnostics functionality makes the encoder even more reliable.
