AMCI ANG1(E) Stepper Indexer/Drive with Ethernet

AMCI ANG1(E) Stepper Indexer/Drive with Ethernet

Terryville, CT – Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI), releases their highly anticipated stepper motor indexer/drive package with network communication. AMCI’s new ANG1(E) integrates drive and motion control technology in one package, simplifying installation and cutting costs. The drive/controller communicates with the host PLC over the EtherNet/IP or Modbus-TCP network. Move commands are easily programmed through the host PLC’s software, and cabling is drastically reduced by expanding up to 6 axes of motion over a single network connection. The ANG1(E)’s revolutionary product design makes it a perfect solution for new installations or controls upgrades.

Stepper Indexer/Drive Features:
• Stepper Driver + Controller in single package
• Incorporates EtherNet/IP & Modbus TCP interface
• Expandable 1 to 6 Axes of motion control
• Stepper/Servo hybrid technology
• Operate via open or closed loop
• Easy programming without additional software
• DIN rail mounting

Simplify Installation and Cut Costs
AMCI’s ANG1(E) integrates a stepper controller and driver into one, compact package that communicates with the host controller (your PLC or PAC) over the network. The indexer/drive easily mounts on a standard DIN rail, simplifying installation and lowering costs.

All programming is performed by the same software used to configure the host PLC/PAC, eliminating the need to learn new software and/or language foreign to your controls environment.

Expandable Motion Control: 1 – 6 Axes
The ANG1(E) easily expands from 1-to-6 axes of motion control by stacking additional controller drives onto the “master”, and only requires a single network connection for all axes of control. This innovative product design simplifies installation, optimizes network performance, and ensures system integrity.

Hybrid® Control Technology
Combining stepper and servo technologies, AMCI’s ANG1(E) delivers exceptional performance across a range of applications. The ANG1(E) provides excellent low speed, high torque motion control (like a stepper), and can be equipped with encoder feedback to deliver closed loop performance (like a servo). Applications benefiting from this new technology include low speed, high torque applications involving repetitive motion; as well as applications that require dynamic performance related to shifts in load.
