Adlink Technology Inc. has released comprehensive distributed motion and I/O solutions providing motion control of up to 256 axes and I/O control of up to 2,016 control points through the integration of dedicated and time-deterministic motion & I/O field buses: Motionnet and High Speed Link (HSL).
The family of master controllers include the PCI-7856 PCI-based control board for standard applications, and the DPAC-3000 ruggedized and compact fanless controller for applications requiring greater reliability and stability.
The family of slave modules includes the MNET-J3, MNET-S23, and MNET-MIA Motionnet distributed single-axis control modules, the MNET-4XMO series of general-purpose 4-axis control modules, and comprehensive HSL digital and analog I/O modules.
The MNET-4XMO series features real-time and highly accurate performance for point-to-point, multi-axis linear/circular interpolation.
The MNET-4XMO-C provides path motion for up to 2,048 paths. The combination of time-deterministic motion performance and scanning of thousands of discrete I/O points (up to 2,016 points less than 1 ms) enables simple implementation of high-speed and high response motion control systems supporting up to 256 axes.
Adlink also provides MotionCreatorPro 2, a Windows-based application development software package included with all distributed motion and I/O control modules.
MotionCreatorPro 2 provides simple configuration and real-time statuses of modules, in addition to precise positioning control with no effort.
