Did you know that Applied Motion Products supports a wide range of Industrial Networks? Manufacturers and OEMs have recognized the production gains that can be realized from increased data communication and machine control by using industrial networks. The number of industrial networks, the number of network nodes, and the capabilities provided by industrial networks have increased dramatically over the last decade.
Applied Motion Products offers connectivity to EtherNet/IP, CANopen, Modbus RTU, and RS-232 and 485 serial networks for our stepper and servo products.
New developments for industrial networks scheduled for the second half of 2014 include EtherCAT and Modbus TCP/IP. In addition, our servo and stepper products can communicate via Ethernet TCP or UDP to PC based control systems or National Instruments LabVIEW software.
Check out our Application Notes to get a jump start on setting up your EtherNet/IP and Modbus RTU communications.
