  • PC-Based Programmable Motion Controller

    The MAS controller is a PC-based motion controller based on the Motion Studio software development tool. It features a range of built-in debugging tools and can be programmed using BASIC programming language. The motion controller is suitable for various applications and can greatly shorten the equipment development cycle. The MAS controller is integrated with a high-performance digital signal processor and field-programmable gate array. It can easily calculate trajectories, perform real-time motion control, and provide I/O processing support functions such as linear, circular, and helical interpolation. Other features include a multi-axis comparison trigger, high-speed position latch, and T/S-curve acceleration/deceleration support. Additionally, with Motion Studio, users can easily complete system configuration and diagnosis, enabling the simple and fast realization of complex motion control functions.

  • Centralized Motion Control Solution

    Centralized motion control solutions include 4-axis, 6-axis, 8-axis motion control cards and embedded motion controller, utilizing a high-performance DSP to calculate the motion trajectories and FPGA to process critical motionI/O. The kernel on DSP is the one of SoftMotion built by Advantech. All motion control PCI cards support common motion API for easy integration or machine upgrade. Motion functions of the cards vary from basic point-to-point motion control, economic linear/circular interpolation to application-specific functions. The PCI-1240U/PCI-1220U and PCI-1243U are motion control cards that are ASIC based. The PEC-3240 is an embedded motion controller; programmers can speed up their system development with this Application ready embedded motion controller. Windows 32 bits/64 bits, .Net components are supported.

    • Accessories

      A DIN-rail terminal board is a wiring board with dedicated connectors for the motors of Panasonic Minas A series, Mitsubishi MR-J2S series and Yaskawa Sigma 2 series. This terminal board can save time and effort of wiring. Each ADAM-3900 series wiring board features DIN-rail mounting terminals and consists of universal screw terminal modules designed for field signal wiring in industrial applications. Besides, DIN-rail terminal board can be connected to the analog and digital ports of Advantech products such as the PCL series.
  • Frame Grabber

    Advantech machine vision is a fully integrated vision system in a compact D39 smart camera format.Our USB Frame Grabber designed for connecting USB industrial cameras in machine vision, factory automation, and medical applications, moreover, the GigE Frame Grabber allows power to be supplied to connected devices, such as PoE-based GigE cameras in machine vision inspection systems. Machine vision systems are able to be configured and monitored remotely using an Ethernet port connection to a PC or factory network. Small and rugged devices can be easily integrated into existing production lines, machinery, or moving equipment. Advantech machine vision with built-in opto-isolated I/O allows direct wiring to associated control devices. A 10/100 BaseTBase-T Ethernet port provides setup and monitoring access, runtime control, and standard communication protocols and passive Power over Ethernet (PoE) supports single cable interface. An integrated lamp connector provides power and strobe control to external LED light sources and the machine vision IDR allows manufacturers to combine 1D and 2D tracking with other inspection tasks, such as character reading (OCR) and feature verification.

  • Distributed Motion Control Solutions

    Advantech offers a range of distributed motion control solutions that include its proprietary motion control network, AMONet (Advantech Motion Network), and Ethernet Control Automation Technology (EtherCAT) solutions.

    • EtherCAT Master Cards

      Advantech provides EtherCAT PCI and PCIe master cards with support for up to 64 axes and numerous I/O for motion control applications. With enhanced I/O capabilities, these master cards enable the precise synchronization of multiple axes and support high-speed data transmissions.
    • EtherCAT Slave Modules

      Advantech offers a variety of distributed I/O and motion control EtherCAT slave modules, such as isolated digital input, isolated digital output, photoMOS relay output, relay contact, analog input/output, pulse output, and junction modules, to satisfy diverse control application needs.
    • AMONet

      The AMONet RS-485 series of distributed motion control products are categorized as Slave Modules and Master Cards. The AMAX-1220/1240/2240 series are used to increase the number of axes for distributed motion control networks; the AMAX-1750/2750 series extend the digital I/O capacity, each digital input module reduces wiring between driver and controller. The Master Card is installed in the host PC, the PCI-1202U and the PCM-3202P master cards collect and publish the information to the host PC. The advantage of the AMONet RS-485 is its compatibility with motor drivers from different vendors such as Panasonic, Mitsubishi and Yaskawa. Thus, the AMONet is engineered to tackle the problems of increased spending on wiring and maintenance of these distributed motion control systems.
