Motion control for networked PLCs
Advanced Micro Controls: An addition to the ANF1 & ANF2 motion controllers, with network communication, expanding the family of AnyNET Networked Specialty I/O products. AMCI′s ANF1 & ANF2 stepper/servo controllers integrate a network connection and expansion capabilities to provide a modern, versatile motion control solution for any PLC-based system.
The AnyNET I/O ANF1 & ANF2 are 1 or 2 axis motion controllers that communicate with the host controller (PLC or PAC) over the EtherNet/ IP, Modbus-TCP, or Profibus-DP network. The modules offer one or two independent motion control axes that function in an open-loop configuration, or closed loop using the available encoder feedback. Each axis can be used to drive a stepper or a servo with step/direction input capability. The ANF2 can synchronize its two axes, giving users the ability to control linear and circular motions in an XY plane. It easily mounts on a standard DIN rail, simplifying installation and lowering costs.
