Schleicher Electronic Control system with EtherCAT
The ProNumeric XCx800 control system with EtherCAT allows users to decide which interface the machine should have and which drives to use. Other features include large RAM, which allows for future expansion. The upgraded support system supports the widespread EtherNet over EtherCAT (EOE) profile and is compatible with almost all EtherCAT-capable drives. In addition to the standard I/Os, other components can be operated directly via EtherCAT, such as valve islands or hydraulic and laser components. Up to 32 interpolated axes, drive control systems and diagnostic functions will continue to be supported.
