AMC EtherCAT Servo Amplifiers control up to 4 axes with 32 digital inputs/outputs.
Advanced Motion Controls released its line of EtherCAT Servo Amplifiers. The company’s panel mount DPE drives serve as nodes in single or multi-axis EtherCAT networks, while plug-in DZE/DZS drives utilize AMC’s proprietary high speed multi-axis communication interface and I/O expansion capabilities (‘DxM’ and ‘DxI/O’ Technologies). Each type can accommodate a combination of up to 4 axes of motion with 32 digital inputs, 32 digital outputs, 4 analog inputs, and 2 analog outputs each. In addition, the drives feature four quadrant regenerative operation; space vector modulation (svm) technology; programmable gain settings; and configurable current, voltage, velocity and position limits. The drives also offers PIDF velocity loop and PID + FF position loop; 12-bit analog to digital hardware; and on-the-fly mode switching and gain set switching.
