SynqNet Interest Group Established for Motion Applications
With more than 270,000 axes running worldwide, SynqNet is the most widely utilized motion network in operation today and growing rapidly. As a result, the SynqNet Interest Group was established as an avenue of communication and education to help system and design engineers better understand the advantages of SynqNet system architecture and technology, and how it can help them build a better machine, faster, in performance motion control applications, says Dean Onishi, SynqNet Communications Manager for Danaher Motion. Onishi says the group also aims to ensure ease-of-use and interoperability across SynqNet products for OEMs and end-users.
The SynqNet motion network utilizes the industry standard IEE802.3 physical layer for robust electrical isolation and 100 meter cable lengths with a deterministic protocol layer engineered by Danaher Motion. SynqNet was designed to meet demanding multi-axis motion applications and to address industry trends towards interoperable, digital machinery. SynqNet gives machines designers an open platform to meet the market demands for system modularity, HotReplace machine service without downtime, remote diagnostics, software field upgrade, multi-vendor support and fault-tolerant safety. Since 2003, more than 270,000 axes of SynqNet motion and I/O networking solutions have been installed.
