EtherCat Module for Motion Control

Feb. 2, 2011
The EtherCat Master drive interface module is designed to provide tightly synchronized control for up to 64 slave axes on the MC464 Motion Coordinator motion and machine controller.

Up to seven modules may be added, each providing eight 100-nanosecond registration inputs that can be mapped to any axis. The MC464 Motion Coordinator is based on the 64-bit 400MHz MIPS processor with 64-bit position registers and double floating point math for exceptional servo precision. The central control unit  includes analog and digital I/O, status display, SD card memory expansion, axis synchronization and programming ports with a wide choice of half- and full-height expansion modules for drive technology, I/O expansion, factory and fieldbus communication. Users can choose a 4- or 8-axis module for stepper, analog servo or piezo motor control with several choices of absolute or incremental feedback, and can freely mix modules that support third-party drive technologies including SERCOS II, Panasonic RTEX, SLM and now, EtherCat.
