Oriental Motor has added the Ethernet/IP communications protocol to its AZ Series AC input line of stored data network drivers. All of the AZ Series drivers feature remain intact in this new communications driver model and is compatible with all AZ Series family of products.
With the Ethernet/IP AZ Series driver, the operating data can be sent from the host system or can be set in the driver and selected and executed from a host system. Host system connection and control are performed with I/O Stored Data or Ethernet/IP communications.
The AlphaStep AZD (AC Input) Stepper Motor Drivers offers superior high speed performance, high functionality and closed loop control. There are no external sensors to buy as the motor and driver complete the system.
The AZ Series can be controlled by directly connecting to the Ethernet/IP master device using a single Ethernet/IP communications cable. This allows for quick and simple wiring.
Here’s a quick look at how the Ethernet/IP driver compares to the rest of the AZ Series:
New features of the Oriental Motor AZ Series Driver with Ethernet/IP Communication include:
- Single-Phase 100-120 VAC or Single/Three-Phase 200-240 VAC
- Control methods: I/O Stored Data, Ethernet/IP Communications or Pulse Input
- AOI instruction set for easier program configuration
- Support Software for Parameter Setting (free download)
