Advanced Micro Controls introduces SD4840E2 integrated controller + drive

February 22, 2019 – Advanced Micro Controls releases their DC-powered integrated stepper controller/drive package with multi-protocol Ethernet communication.  AMCI’s SD4840E2 combines drive and motion control technology into a single product.  The SD4840E2 integrated controller + drive communicates with the host PLC over the EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP, or Profinet network, and move commands are programmed through the host PLC’s software.  AMCI’s SD4840E2’s design and standard DIN rail mounting makes it a solution for new installations or controls upgrades.

Stepper Controller/Drive Features:

  • Stepper Controller + Drive in single package
  • E2 Ethernet Technology
  • 0.1 – 4.0Arms output current
  • Full complement of motion profiles including homing and electronic gearing
  • Works with most 2-phase stepper motors
  • Programming without additional software
  • DIN rail mounting

The SD4840E2 features AMCI’s E2 Technology which is a multi-protocol approach to Ethernet distributed I/O that makes moving from one industrial Ethernet protocol to another simple.  Supported protocols include EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP, and PROFINET. An advanced web server integrated within the SD4840E2 facilitates network configuration via web-browser. The SD4840E2 has a built-in Ethernet switch and dual network ports, offering fault-tolerant networking; DLR for EtherNet/IP & MRP for Profinet, which can detect a break in the network and redirect the network traffic maintaining communication and system up-time.  The embedded switch also provides a network connection for additional devices without increasing the nodes on an existing ethernet switch.
