AMAX-3245 provides the ability to connect step motor drives and servo motor drives with CW/CCW and Pulse/Direction interfaces to EtherCAT networks controlled by Advantech EtherCAT master PCI/PCIE-1203. AMAX-3245 has open frame designs for horizontal placement and an interface connector mounted on the board. With a to-servo-drive transfer cable, it can be conveniently connected to Mitsubishi J3/J4, Yaskwa Sigma V/7, and Panasonic A4/A5 servos. AMAX-3245 is a 4-axis EtherCAT motion slave module that supports motion interpolation, axes synchronization, and continuou contouring. Advantech also provides a common motion API library, graphical utility, and user-friendly examples to reduce the programming load and facilitate easy configuration and diagnosis.
