Motion Controllers for Networked PLC’s
ANF1 & ANF2 AnyNET I/O Motion Controller Features:
- 1-or-2 axis motion controllers
- Use for servo or stepper control
- Choose EtherNet IP, Modbus-TCP, or Profibus-DP
- Compatible w/ today’s leading PLC’s or PAC’s
- Simplified programming via the host controllers’ native software
The AnyNET I/O ANF1 & ANF2 are fully featured 1 or 2 axis motion controllers that communicate with the host controller (PLC or PAC) over the EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP, or Profibus-DP network. The modules offer one or two independent motion control axes that function in an open-loop configuration, or closed loop using the available encoder feedback. Each axis can be used to drive a stepper or a servo with step/direction input capability. The ANF2 can synchronize its two axes, giving you the ability to control linear and circular motions in an XY plane. It easily mounts on a standard DIN rail, simplifying installation and lowering costs.
The ANF1 & ANF2 are compatible with any PLC that support EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP or Profibus-DP, and are programmed using the input/output registers within the host controller. No additional software is required to use the motion controllers with the PLC/PAC.
Expandable Motion Control: 1 – 12 Axes
AnyNET I/O easily expands from 1 to 6 I/O modules by stacking additional units onto the “gateway,” and only requires a single network connection for all communication. This solution enables the support of up to 12 motion axes over a single network connection, which reduces physical wiring and streamlines data traffic over the network.
