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

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
