Stepper drive/controller with Ethernet

The ACS stepper drive/controller with Ethernet supports both Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP for easy connectivity to Allen-Bradley PLCs and other PLCs and HMIs. The unit commands motion with immediate move command or preconfigured moves for infinite position capability. Each move has configurable parameters —position, velocity, acceleration/ deceleration, and force — that are independent for each move. The Ethernet connectivity provides additional status and diagnostic information to the control system for better monitoring and fault recovery.
