Closed Loop Stepping Systems 4-axis Integrated Driver EtherCAT Interface

SANYO DENKI EUROPE SA. is pleased to introduce its new "SANMOTION PB" closed loop stepping systems 4-axis integrated driver, EtherCAT interface.

1. High-speed fieldbus EtherCAT interface equipped
This driver comes equipped with a fieldbus that allows for 100 Mbps high-speed and highly reliable communications. This has shortened the communication cycle time by 4 times or more that of our current model, achieving finer and smoother motion of the embedded device.
2. Encoder variations available for simplified maintenance
In addition to an incremental encoder, a battery-less absolute encoder is also available.
This encoder doesn’t require battery replacements, thus the maintenance of devices can be simplified.
3. Flexible system configuration
Different encoder types can be equipped with each motor axis, enabling configuration of systems matched to device structure.
The driver can automatically identify the encoder types, saving time on setup (patent pending).
4. Shortens motion completion time of devices
Any commanded motion such as position settling and continuous rotation can be controlled without delays to position commands.
