Controller enables communications with both drives and field devices
See it at PACK EXPO Booth #S-5425! Schneider Electric’s PACDrive 3 is a fully Ethernet-based communication solution for PACDrive applications and provides a wide range of scalable performance for synchronized multi-axis motion, PLC functionally and robotic control on a single hardware platform.
Designed for both highly complex and simple machine configurations. At the upper end, performance is sufficient for up to 254 servo axes or 30 robots. At the lower end of the performance range, now controllers for 0 to 4 or up to 8 servo axes are designed for more economical automation of simple machines. With the addition of SERCOS III the PACDrive 3 is the first, fully Ethernet-based communication solution for PACDrive applications, enabling communications with both drives and field devices.
