Advanced Motion Controls’ new DZE & DZS series of servo drives for EtherCAT enabled control networks feature a package size that can easily fit in the palm of your hand. These products not only provide precise motion but also at reduced cost when applied in a multiple networked axes system.
Advanced Motion Controls also announces its ‘DxM’, Demultiplexed Motion technology, allowing connectivity of up to 3 DZS drives (sub-nodes) to a single DZE (node) on an EtherCAT network for up to 4 axes of servo motion. Removing the cost of additional EtherCAT nodes greatly reduces overall system cost. ‘DxM’ technology handles all sub-node activity easily through one node, making master tasks much simpler in multi-axis systems.
Also new are the DPE series of EtherCAT enabled servo drives as part of the panel mount DigiFlex® Performance™ platform. Both DPEs and DZEs can be used as stand-alone EtherCAT slave nodes in single-axis setups or as part of a larger, multi-axis EtherCAT network. The DZSs must be used as sub-nodes in a DxM configuration with a DZE node.
