Servo Motor Controller features CANopen option.

Press Release Summary:

Designed to drive I-Grade NEMA 17, 23, and some 34 frame motors generating 21-300 oz-in. continuous torque, Model IG-J1 features CANopen option, which can be configured for peer-to-peer, master, or slave. Controller supports CiA CANopen Drives and Motion Control Profile 402, which allows master CANopen devices to communicate using standard set of motion commands. Seven bi-directional I/O, 12-48 V input power, and communications signals are accessed through DB15HD port.

Original Press Release:

OEM Servo Motor Controller with CANopen and CiA 402

QuickSilver has added a CANopen option to its OEM servo motor controller. CANopen may be configured for peer-to-peer, master or slave. This allows the controllers to share I/O and registers with other CANopen enabled SilverDust(TM) controllers or 3rd party CANopen devices (i.e. I/O blocks, encoders, PLCs...). For a multi-axis system, connect several IG-Js, make one the master and let the others receive motion commands over CANopen.

The IG-J1 supports the CAN in Automation (CiA) CANopen Drives and Motion Control Profile 402 which allows master CANopen devices, such as PLCs, to communicate using a standard set of motion commands.

This servo controller is designed to drive QuickSilver's line of I-Grade NEMA 17, 23 and some 34 frame motors generating from 21 oz-in (0.15Nm) to 300 oz-in (2.1Nm) continuous torque. It also includes serial communications (RS-232, RS-485), and 7 I/O. The RS-232/RS-485 serial network runs in parallel with CAN for supervisory control from a host (i.e. PC, PLC, HMI..).

The 7 bi-directional I/O, 12V-48V input power, and communications signals are accessed through the DB15HD port and can be converted to terminal strips using one of the popular breakouts (QCI-BO-B, QCI-BO-B1, QCI-BO-B1A, or QCI-BO-B52).
