- ADVANCED Motion Controls
April 26, 2013 - ADVANCED Motion Controls releases EtherCAT servo drives with DxM and DxI/O technology that expands control to up to 4 axes of motion plus an additional 280 I/O points while maintaining the same 100µs update rate performance previously only achieved in single axis systems.
Significant cost savings is achieved because only one EtherCAT slave node is needed to control up to 3 less expensive sub-nodes (DxM Technology). Additional cost savings come from eliminating the need for expensive 3rd party network I/O modules (DxI/O Technology). DxM and DxI/O Technology delivers peak performance and offers scalability only previously found in larger, customized, highly dedicated industrial machines. With DxM and DxI/O Technologies, application solutions are now available for smaller machinery and desktop equipment like water jet cutters, routers, lab automation equipment, biotech processing equipment, smaller mobile robots, etc. where panel space is a premium or not at all available.
