DZSANTU-040B080   rated at   18-80 VDC Input, 20A cont. (40A peak)@ 18-80 VDC Output
DZEANTU-020B200   rated at   40-175 VDC Input, 10A cont. (20A peak)@ 40-175 VDC Output
DZSANTU-020B200   rated at   40-175 VDC Input, 10A cont. (20A peak)@ 40-175 VDC Output

ADVANCED Motion Controls provides products for the fastest, most flexible form of industrial Ethernet control - EtherCAT®.   High speed, deterministic control with standard 100 base-T hardware, EtherCAT is industry proven to achieve blazing fast, consistent results in demanding applications.


Extending the popular DigiFlex® Performance™ product line AMC's EtherCAT communication servo drives provide for multiple feedback devices in a variety of power platforms.   ADVANCED Motion Controls EtherCAT products consist of panel mount and plug-in servo drives to allow for quick prototyping and ease of system integration.   Panel mount DPE drives serve as nodes in single or multi-axis EtherCAT networks, while plug-in DZE/DZS drives utilize AMC's unique, proprietary high speed multi-axis communication interface and I/O expansion capabilities ('DxM'™ and 'DxI/O'™ Technologies).   Now a single EtherCAT node can accommodate a combination of up to 4 axes of motion with 32 digital inputs, 32 digital outputs, 4 analog inputs, and 2 analog outputs each.   The result is a highly integrated high value motion control solution for single or multi-axis applications.   Key features include:


EtherCAT® Network Drives

·         CoE (CANopen over EtherCAT) device profile based on drives and motion control device profile, DSP-402

·         Programmable PDOs allow up to 16 receive and 16 transmit messages per drive per EtherCAT cycle.

·         Watchdog monitor disables the drive when communication is lost.

·         Cycle times down to 100 µs with jitter under 1 µs.

·         Auxiliary USB interface for commissioning and diagnostics.

·         Compatible feedback types: 5V TTL Encoder, 1Vpp Sin/Cos, Heidenhain or EnDat absolute encoders

'DxM'™ Technology

·         Allows control of up to 4 axes of servo motion from a single node on the EtherCAT network

·         One DZEANTU (node) and up to three DZSANTU (sub-nodes) provide a low-cost multi-axis EtherCAT solution

'DxI/O'™ Technology

·         Low-cost network I/O expansion solution

·         Up to 70 additional digital and analog I/O points per axis – 280 additional I/O points in a 'DxM' configuration

·         All of the expanded I/O accessible via PDOs on the EtherCAT network
