August 22, 2018 – Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI), releases their “E2 Technology” within the company’s lineup of PLC-based SMD Series “all-in-one” stepper motor + drive + controllers. AMCI's E2 Technology is designed to make moving from one industrial Ethernet protocol to another simple; without the need to physically switch parts. AMCI’s SMD Series with E2 Technology come standard with EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP, and Profinet built into each unit. AMCI’s SMD Series integrated solutions are designed for installations, and for retrofitting machinery used in rapid-changeover manufacturing.
- Dual-Port Networking
- Web Server
- Native Software
The embedded dual-port network switch simplifies product daisy chaining, adds flexibility to any network architecture, and supports redundant protocols like DLR (device level ring) and MRP (media redundancy protocol). AMCI’s SMD E2 Series units come standard with EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP, and Profinet built in. The integrated web server facilitates simple network type selection and IP address configuration. As with all of AMCI’s products, programming is performed using the host PLC/PAC software, eliminating the need to learn a new programming environment.
AMCI’s SMD Series integrated stepper motors provide a complete solution, offering a variety of options performance across a range of applications. With the addition of NEMA size 17 packages, options now include NEMA size 17, NEMA size 23, NEMA size 24, and NEMA size 34, with torque ranging from 80 oz-in (0.56 N-m) to 1100 oz-in (7.77 N-m). Features such as SynchroStep technology, optional integrated encoder (incremental or multi-turn absolute), IP67 rated versions, gearboxes, and compatible cord sets optimize motion applications.
