Decentralized Motion Control Solutions
The first series of distributed motion control products from Advantech is called the AMONet RS-485 series which are categorized in two groups - Master Cards and Slave Modules. While the Master Card is kept in the host PC, the Slave Modules can be distributed so that they are next to motor drivers on the factory floor. Another advantage of AMONet RS-485 is its compatibility with motor drivers from different vendors such as Panasonic, Mitsubishi and Yaskawa. Thus, the AMONet is engineered to tackle the problems of increasing spending on wiring and maintenance of these complex motion control systems, and also make configuration much easier.
