June 13, 2017 - NEXCOM has completed its EtherCAT solution with the NEIO series of EtherCAT slave I/O modules to offer an open architecture to build Industry 4.0-ready control systems. Featuring EtherCAT communication, compatibility, and I/O density, the NEIO series provides machine control and robotic control applications.
The NEIO series brings the characteristic short cycle time of EtherCAT communication to automation control. To achieve the full potential of high speed real-time EtherCAT, the NEIO has been designed by the IEC 61131-2 standards, tested with the EtherCAT Conformance Test Tool (CTT), and offered with ESI files to ensure performance compliance and interoperability with 3rd party EtherCAT devices. Coming with a density of 32 channels and both sink and source types, the NEIO series is designed to enable worldwide system integrators to satisfy the I/O requirements of machine control and robotic control by aggregating all sensors, switches, and drives to one or two NEIO EtherCAT slave I/O modules.
With the NEIO series, NEXCOM EtherCAT solution can propel the development of Industry 4.0-ready control systems with EtherCAT master controllers, EtherCAT slave I/O modules, and 3rd party slave drives. System integrators can rely on NEXCOM EtherCAT solution to devise a distributed system schema to consolidate motion coordination, multi-axis synchronization, auxiliary functions, and safety protection onto industrial machines and robots.
