Motion Products Get Ethernet Powerlink

July 9, 2007
A selection of the vendor’s motion control products are now enabled with Ethernet Powerlink motionbus technology to increase system performance while decreasing overall system cost and installation time.
Ethernet Powerlink-enabled products include the ACR9030 and ACR9040 multi-axis EPL controllers and three power levels of the Aries EPL servo drives. The Ethernet connections are expected to produce higher reliability and decreased installation times for machine builders, who can also take advantage of the system’s EtherNet/IP connectivity to the outside world. To support the new release, the vendor’s ACR-View Software Development Kit has been upgraded into an integrated programming environment used to configure and program the entire EPL system, including controller, drives and I/O.
