Axis-Drive Modules Embrace EtherCAT Networks

The SPiiPlus UDMnt EtherCAT-slave universal drive module directly drives one or two axes and supports ac servo, dc brushless, dc brush, plus closed- and open-loop two- and five-phase step motors. Also, many UDMnt devices are linkable on a network to create as many as 32 axes of fully-coordinated control. The module is available with a 5A, 10A, or 20A peak current rating with up to 60-Vdc bus voltage. Other features include a dedicated encoder and limit inputs, general purpose I/O, and fault protection. ACS MOTION CONTROL, Eden Prairie, MN. (763) 559-7669.
