Lenze adds EtherCAT to Controller 3200 C
May 3, 2011 - Lenze adds EtherCAT to Controller 3200 C for the ECS servo system . The clock-synchronised EtherCAT interface for the L-force Controller 3200 C allows demanding motion tasks in terms of number of axes and precision required to be solved effectively and economically.
The L-force Controller 3200 C has been designed for use in the control cabinet and is based on the energy-efficient Intel Atom processor. The integrated 48 MBit/s backplane bus allows I/O modules from the I/O system 1000 to be directly side-mounted to the controller. A short cycle time and minimum jitter in combination with a time stamp guarantee that the motion system also complies with the strictest speed and synchronism requirements.
The ECS servo system provides the compact servo drives with high dynamic performance that are necessary for motion tasks with highest requirements regarding precision and speed. They have been designed specifically for multi-axis applications in central control architectures. The versatile system includes a large selection of axis and power supply modules that can be connected to form a integrated unit. The ECS drives are perfectly matched to the highly dynamic motors in the MCS range, but can also be combined effectively with other synchronous and asynchronous motors.
