As the trend for motion control systems moves towards distributed systems as they control more axes and more I/O devices, Advantech has launched the new AMAX-1000 series. The AMAX-1220 and AMAX-1240 are open frame type with either 2 or 4 axis AMONet motion slave modules and the AMAX-1752, AMAX-1754 and AMAX-1756 are open frame type 32 channel isolated digital input and output slave modules with 32 digital inputs, 32 digital outputs and16 digital inputs/16 digital outputs respectively.
All five models are provided with transfer cables to ensure customers can easily connect their Panasonic, Yaskawa and Mitsubishi servo drives. To connect to these servo drives directly and save terminal board space during installation all models feature an on-board interface connector and screw terminal.
This new series has been entirely redesigned for the easiest possible installation. For convenient wiring and the addition of new modules all key components have been moved to the front. To provide engineers with a clear diagnosis of problems the AMAX-1000 includes a range of highly visible LEDs.
This AMAX-1000 series is designed to be used in industries which are technology-intensive and require a high degree of integration and a greater number of I/Os such as the automobile, semiconductor, LCD panel, solar panel and need distributed motion control.
The AMAX-1220 includes linear & circular interpolation, simultaneously start/stop among multiple slave modules, and brake signal to servo for emergence consideration and the AMAX-1240 includes all features of AMAX-1220 and further provide advanced function such as position compare and trigger function.
