Two variations of the motion/machine control card are offered: a dual-axis version that will control the host Powerlink drive plus another external drive via a conventional analog interface, or a high-speed version that will also act as a Powerlink network controller to manage a complete multi-axis control system. Both options are compatible with the vendor’s Mint motion language, with its rich development support. The multi-axis control made possible by the Mint Machine Module is a unique offering in the real-time Ethernet market, according to the vendor.
