Set of Solutions for Distributed Motion and I/O in Machine Automation

As the size of automation equipment increases, more motion axes and I/O points are required. Adlink has now announced a set of comprehensive distributed motion and I/O solutions that is targeted at providing motion control of up to 256 axes, and I/O control of up to 2,016 control points through the integration of dedicated and time-deterministic motion & I/O field buses: Motionnet and High Speed Link (HSL).

The distributed motion and I/O solutions combine a master controller and comprehensive distributed motion and I/O modules as slaves. Adlink's family of master controllers includes the PCI-7856 PCI-based control board for standard applications, and the DPAC-3000 ruggedized and compact fanless controller for applications requiring greater reliability and stability. Adlink's family of slave modules includes the MNET-J3, MNET-S23 and MNET-MIA Motionnet distributed single-axis control modules, the MNET-4XMO series of general-purpose 4-axis control modules, and comprehensive HSL digital and analog I/O modules. 

The MNET-4XMO series features real-time and highly accurate performance for point-to-point, multi-axis linear/circular interpolation—ideal for electronic components manufacturing for LCD and solar panel applications such as LCD/solar panel substrate, array and cell conveyors and assembly. The MNET-4XMO-C provides path motion for up to 2,048 paths—suitable for applications requiring constant velocity motion such as dispensing systems. The combination of time-deterministic motion performance and scanning of thousands of discrete I/O points (up to 2,016 points less than 1 ms) enables simple implementation of high-speed and high-response motion control systems supporting up to 256 axes.

Adlink also provides MotionCreatorPro 2, a Windows-based application development software package included with all distributed motion and I/O control modules. MotionCreatorPro 2 provides simple configuration and real-time statuses of modules, in addition to precise positioning control with no effort.
