ACS Motion Control: Networking technology based on EtherCAT
The MC4Unt from ACS Motion Control is a real-time EtherCAT networking solution that connects multiple MC4U units to increase the fully coordinated machine control axis count from 8 to 32.
The MC4Unt is a fully-integrated system that controls fully-synchronized axes of motion, including a wide range of amplifiers and corresponding power supplies (100-10,000W; 24-560Vdc) with the ability to add hundreds of I/Os. Axes controlled by the MC4Unt system are fully synchronized to a single 20kHz sampling and servo update rate with a maximum synchronization dither of 100 nanoseconds.
