OEM Servo Motor Controller Features CAN Option
Wed, 06/11/2008 - 11:50am
QuickSilver has added a CAN option to its smallest (2 inches/52 mm × 2.5 inches/63mm), most cost effective servo motor controller. CAN can be configured for peer-to-peer, master, or slave, which allows the controllers to share I/O and registers with other CANopen enabled SilverDust controllers or 3rd party CANopen devices (i.e., I/O blocks, encoders, PLCs). For a multi-axis system, connect several MG-Cs, make one the master, and let the others receive motion commands over CAN. This single axis, programmable controller is specially designed to servo 3rd party stepper motors, creating a closed loop stepper system.
