Resolver Interface for Networked PLCs
Press release date: May 27, 2014
Terryville, CT – Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI), announces the addition of their ANA2 Resolver Interface Module to the AnyNET I/O family of PLC-based specialty I/O products. AMCI’s AnyNET Resolver Interface integrates a network connection and expansion capabilities to provide a modern, versatile resolver feedback solution for any PLC-based system. The ANA2 expands up to six 2-channel modules, allowing users to interface up to 12 resolver sensors using a single network connection. The interface programs through the host controller’s (PLC) software, and is compatible with most resolver transducers on the market.
ANA2 AnyNET I/O Resolver Interface Features:
• Direct interface to most resolver transducers
• Built-in network interface
• Fully programmable Reference Voltage, Frequency, & Transformation ratio
• 16-bit resolution (up to 65,536 counts)
• Supports up to 12 resolver sensors on a single network connection
• Each ANA2 unit can connect to two single resolver transducers or to one dual resolver transducer
• Provides absolute position and velocity data for resolvers
• Position scaling that simplifies sensor data
• Easy programming without additional software
• DIN rail mounting
The AnyNET I/O ANA2 is a full featured 2-channel Resolver interface that communicates with the host controller (PLC or PAC) over the network. The interface satisfies a wide range of applications because of its flexible design. It easily mounts on a standard DIN rail, simplifying installation and lowering costs.
The ANA2 is compatible with any PLC that supports the product's available networks since it’s programmed using the input/output registers within the host controller. No additional software is required to use the Resolver interface with the PLC/PAC. Users have the option of configuring & testing the ANA2 using AMCI's convenient PC-based Net Configurator software (downloaded at no charge).
AnyNET I/O easily expands from 1 to 6 I/O modules by stacking additional units onto the “gateway”, and only requires a single network connection for all communication. This solution enables the support of up to 12 resolver sensors over a single network connection, which reduces physical wiring and streamlines data traffic over the network.
AMCI’s AnyNET I/O family now includes: ANA2 Resolver Interface, ANG1 Stepper Controller/Drive, ANE2 SSI Interface, & LVDT/RVDT Signal Conditioner. For more information on AMCI’s AnyNET I/O family, visit our website>> www.amci.com/anynet
