January 14, 2013 — Agile Planet announced AX-50 and AX-100 Controllers. AX controllers provide scalable PC-based motion/robot control that can either be fully programmed from a Rockwell PLC or be standalone machine/robot controllers. AX-50/100 Controllers also support 16 axes of motion. By using the AX-50/100 Controllers, customers will reduce development cost, decrease time-to-market and greatly increase their potential customer base through no need for special programming skills and ability to interact with any PLC.
The AX-50/100 Controllers can easily be programmed in Microsoft Visual Studio or using RSLogix 5000 from Rockwell Automation. All AX controllers are EtherCAT masters and have built in support for a variety of servo drives and IO modules.
