ADVANCED Motion Controls: EtherCAT® servo drives with demultiplexed motion technology

As part of their Z-Drives platform of plug-in servo drives, ADVANCED Motion Controls’ powerful DZE & DZS series of servo drives for EtherCAT-enabled control networks provide precise motion but at reduced cost when applied in a multiple networked axes system.

ADVANCED Motion Controls has also created exclusive ‘DxM’ - Demultiplexed Motion technology allowing connectivity of up to 3 DZS drives (sub-nodes) to a single DZE (node) on an EtherCAT® network for up to 4 axes of servo motion.  Removing the cost of additional EtherCAT® nodes greatly reduces overall system cost.  'DxM' technology handles all sub-node activity easily through one node, making master tasks much simpler in multi-axis systems.

Also introduced are new DPE series of EtherCAT enabled servo drives as part of the panel mount DigiFlex® Performanceâ„¢ platform.  Both DPE's and DZE's can be used as stand-alone EtherCAT® slave nodes in single-axis setups or as part of a larger, multiple axes EtherCAT network.  The DZS's must be used as sub-nodes in a 'DxM' configuration with a DZE node.
