April 8, 2014 - ACS Motion Control introduces NetworkBoost, a network failure detection and recovery feature that increases machine uptime. NetworkBoost indicates the exact failure location within the EtherCAT network, minimizing troubleshooting & repair time. NetworkBoost enables the network to resume and continue its normal operation without replacing the failed cable. With NetworkBoost, there is no need for additional hardware, just an extra Ethernet port on the host PC and an EtherCAT cable. NetworkBoost is available with the SPiiPlusSC soft controller and all ACS EtherCAT network systems and production machines for any application where downtime is expensive.
