Master module for motion and control systems

Motion control equipment firm INMOCO has released an EtherCAT master module to enable high-speed, multi-vendor motion and control systems.

The model M3-41A gives control of networked servos, stepping motors and I/O devices, and allows multi-vendor configurations with the CTC system acting as a protocol bridge as well as a control system.

It doesn’t require signal process time, and users can mix local and remote devices, or change a device from local to remote without extensive programming changes.
