hardware and complex motion on a SynqNet network. The modules provide a single network programming environment for motion and I/O that simplifies machine design, decreases time to market, and maximizes performance by providing real-time I/O and remote motion performance diagnostics for in-depth system level visibility, analysis, and control. Units are particularly suited to high-volume OEMs that have unique I/O timing needs or require tight synchronization with motion requirements, or those who simply want system-level software visibility of I/O status and operation. The state of every SynqNet digital or analog I/O point can be read or modified every SynqNet sample period. Combined with the controllers’ recorder functionality, it is now possible to achieve I/O sampling rates of 2 to 48kHz, while the amount of data that can be recorded is only limited by the hard drive space on the host PC.
