QuickSilver Controls, Inc. Adds Modbus® to Their Integrated Servomotors
QuickSilver Controls adds the popular Modbus® protocol to its SilverMax® line of integrated servomotors. This industry standard protocol allows register mapping between SilverMax and Modbus hosts (i.e. PLCs, HMIs and PCs). For example, A PLC using Modbus could easily control the servo's position, velocity, acceleration, torque, program flow and more by accessing the appropriate SilverMax register. SilverMax can report back such things as actual position, velocity, torque, temperature, program state, I/O status and more. Use a PC to initialize and program the SilverMax for your application or use one of the examples provided. With SilverMax's multi-tasking capability, your application program can still be running while registers are being read and modified in the background by the Modbus host.

With Modbus protocol onboard SilverMax, third part products such as HMS’s AnyBus® can be used to attach SilverMax to field bus networks such as PROFIBUS, DEVICENET or ETHERNET (see www.anybus.com).

A SilverMax combines motor, controller, driver and encoder to create an integrated servomotor. SilverMax provides the programmer flexibility to program applications requiring electronic clutch, electronic gearing/caming, registration moves, serial communications, and 7 configurable I/O (4 of which can be analog inputs). All SilverMax carry UL, CUL and CE markings.
