Dec. 17, 2017 – The Tolomatic ACSI integrated servo motor and controller is now available with Profinet Industrial Ethernet protocol, allowing engineers to design electric actuator solutions for single-axis applications.
With built-in configurations for Tolomatic electric actuators, the ACSI integrated controller automatically configures the motor, actuator, safety limits and other key settings inside the controller. The Profinet protocol is in addition to Tolomatic’s existing EtherNet/IP and Modbus-TCP options for the ACSI. According to the company, the integrated package is ideal for replacing pneumatic cylinders and automating any simple axis of motion with Siemens or other Profinet enabled PLCs. Certified by PI North America to Profinet v2.33 standards, the ACSI controller can be implemented on real-time networks as an I/O device.
