Trio Motion Technology ProfiNet-EtherCAT Gateway
ProfiNet master hub to EtherCAT slaves
- ProfiNet master to EtherCAT slaves
- Suitable for 1 to 64 EtherCAT drives
- Suitable for Leadshine and Estun drives
Gateway developed for connection of EtherCAT servo and stepper drives to a higher master controller equipped with ProfiNet. This makes it possible to control up to 64 drives (slaves) with EtherCAT from a Siemens PLC with ProfiNet (master).
In the delivery program of ATB Automation this concerns:
- Leadshine ELP-EC series: ac servo controller with EtherCAT (100W to 2 kW)
- Leadshine CS3E series: closed loop stepper motor controller with EtherCAT
- Leadshine EM3E series: open loop stepper motor controller with EtherCAT
- Estun ProNet-EG-EC series: ac servo controller with EtherCAT (200W to 5 kW)
The ProfiNet-EtherCAT Gateway is available in various types, depending on controlling the number of EtherCAT drives from one Profinet master:
- P600-G-2: Gateway suitable for 2 EtherCAT drives
- P601-G-4: Gateway suitable for 4 EtherCAT drives
- P602-G-8: Gateway suitable for 8 EtherCAT drives
- P603-G-16: Gateway suitable for 16 EtherCAT drives
- P604-G-32: Gateway suitable for 32 EtherCAT drives
- P605-G-64: Gateway suitable for 64 EtherCAT drives
Target positions can be specified per axis for relative and absolute positioning, including speed, acceleration and deceleration settings.
In addition to positioning, jog function and reference procedure per axis are available.
