MicroFlex e100 and MotiFlex e100 drives feature an Ethernet interface compatible with the deterministic Ethernet-compatible motion control standard, Powerlink. An onboard motion-control programming capability—Mint Lite—is also standard. The drives are available in power ratings up to 33.5A, with higher ratings coming soon, says the vendor. The embedded Mint Lite capability supports a range of basic motion programming requirements, including performing relative and absolute moves S-ramp profiles, jog and homing movements, changing target positions on the fly, registration moves, and reacting to real-time trigger events. MicroFlex e100 and MotiFlex e100 drives come with built-in I/O as standard, including fast latch inputs for registration applications, plus CANopen manager capability to support distributed I/O expansion and HMI interfacing.
