AMCI Integrated motors
The PLC-based SMD series all-in-one stepper motor + drive + controllers uses E2 technology, which facilitates moving from one industrial Ethernet protocol to another without the need to switch parts. The series comes standard with EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP and Profinet built into each unit, and integration eliminates the need to purchase multiple components. These integrated solutions are suitable for new installations and for retrofitting new machinery used in rapid-changeover manufacturing. The embedded dual-port network switch simplifies product daisy chaining, adds flexibility to any network architecture and supports redundant protocols such as device level ring (DLR) and media redundancy protocol (MRP).
