Motion control and digital I/O modules
By Alison Dunn
Advantech has launched the new AMAX-1000 series. The AMAX-1220 and AMAX-1240 are open frame type with either two or four axis AMONet motion slave modules. The AMAX-1752, AMAX-1754 and AMAX-1756 are open frame type with 32 channel isolated digital input and output slave modules (32 digital inputs, 32 digital outputs and 16 digital inputs/16 digital outputs respectively).
All five models are provided with transfer cables to ensure customers can easily connect their Panasonic, Yaskawa, and Mitsubishi servo drives. To connect to these servo drives directly and save terminal board space during installation, all models feature an on-board interface connector and screw terminals. The AMAX-1220 includes linear & circular interpolation, simultaneous start or stop among multiple slave modules, and emergency servo brake signal. The AMAX-1240 includes all features of AMAX-1220 and further provides advanced function such as position compare and trigger function.
