Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI), announces the expansion of their Specialty I/O products for PLC-based control systems. AMCI’s AnyNET I/Ofamily is a distributed I/O system that combines hard to find specialty functions with a network interface, simplifying installation and cutting costs. The product family allows users to “mix & match” functions, including steppermotion control and a variety of sensor interfaces, into a single solution. AnyNET I/Ois compatible with any networked PLC/PAC and easily programsthrough the host PLC’s software. The AnyNET I/O’s innovative product design simplifies installation, optimizes network performance, and ensures system integrity.
AnyNETDistributed Specialty I/OFeatures:
- Compatible with any networked PLC or PAC
- Built-in network interface
- Mix & Match up to 6 AnyNET I/O on a single network connection
- Easy programming without additional software
- DIN rail mounting
Simplify Installation and Cut Costs
AMCI’s AnyNET productsintegrate Specialty I/O functionality and a network interface into one, compact package that communicates with the host controller (your PLC or PAC) over the network. AnyNET products are offered with a variety of network interfaces to ensure compatibility with your PLC or PAC. The solution easily mounts on a standard DIN rail, simplifying installation and lowering costs. All programming is performed by the same software used to configure the host PLC/PAC, eliminating the need to learn new software and/or language foreign to your controls environment.
AnyNET I/O easily expands from 1 to 6 I/O modules by stacking additional units onto the “gateway”, and
only requires a single network connection for all communication. This solution allows you to combine
different specialty functions on a single network connection, letting you customize powerful automation
solutions for any PLC-based application.
Hard to Find I/O Solutions
Integrated Stepper Motor Controller + Drive: Each module provides 1 axis of motion with encoder
feedback, allowing you to expand up to 6 axes of motion control on one connection.
SSI Interface: Each module provides 2 channels, allowing you to interface up to 12 SSI sensors using a
single network connection.
LVDT/RVDT Signal Conditioner: Each module provides 2 channels, allowing you to interface up to 12
LVDT or RVDT sensors using a single network connection. Direct interface to 3-wire, 4-wire, 5-wire, 6-
wire, and half bridge LVDT sensors.
Resolver Interface: Each module provides 2 channels, allowing you to interface up to 12 resolver sensors using a single network connection. The AnyNET resolver interface is compatible with most resolvers on
