The latest addition to the AZ Series family of single-axis stored data drivers now includes AC and DC input. Both input types are now available with PROFINET communication. The AlphaStep AZ Series stepper motors offers high efficiency and low vibration, and incorporate a newly developed Mechanical Absolute Encoder for absolute-type positioning without battery back-up or external sensors to buy. Closed-loop performance is achieved without hunting or gain tuning.
PROFINET provides industrial users with the networking protocol needed to utilize standard Ethernet technology for factory automation applications. Its performance, future-oriented technology and simple configuration makes it ideal for industrial applications.
PROFINET uses familiar Ethernet technology, simplifying its configuration, but capabilities are enhanced to meet the demanding conditions within an industrial application environment.
