Integrated Servo Motors
JVL is one of the leading companies in the field of integrated servo and stepper motors. For their MAC motor’s, from 50 W to 750 W, yet another expansion module has been added: The EtherCAT Industrial Ethernet module.
To supplement the already existing modules like several fieldbuses, NanoPLC, BlueTooth and WLAN etc. was there a demand from the market to develop a new series of Industrial Ethernet modules starting with EtherCAT. Later other Industrial Ethernet variants will be announced. One of the requests for this new module was that hardware to all protocols should be the same so customer at installation time could decide which protocol to use. Thereby can customer save money for stock and new Industrial Ethernet products could be launch very rapidly after approval of the industry. All modules are equipped with robust M12 connector to achieve high IP protection and also internal switch technology with Ethernet IN and OUT so multiple bus systems up to 255 motors or more are possible.
JVL’s EtherCAT module enables high speed real time Ethernet communication directly to the drives:
- 100 Mbit/s communications speed
- Module minimum cycle time 260 us
- 2 ports on the module offer Daisy-chaining possibility
- User friendly LED indicators
- Tough M12 connectors for industrial environment
- Option for 4 digital inputs, 2 digital outputs and 2 analogue inputs
