The SPiiPlusSC motion controller exploits sophisticated software that leverages the processing power of a PC and the connectivity of a real-time open industrial Ethernet network. It enables a standard PC to run the machine host application, GUI, and the SPiiPlusSC real-time motion controller and PLC without adding any hardware. The software includes its own real-time operating system, runs on one of the multi-core PC processors, and provides high-speed host to controller communication over shared RAM and virtual TCP/IP. The controller is compatible with a full line of the company’s EtherCAT motor drives and I/O modules that can provide thousands I/O points. Additionally, the open architecture can support the company’s and other vendors qualified EtherCAT components. ACS MOTION CONTROL, Eden Prairie, MN. (763) 559-7669.
