The NextMove e100 builds on the proven NextMove controller family of products, integrating the management of real-time Ethernet using the industry standard protocol Ethernet POWERLINK. Drives, I/O devices, sensors, absolute encoders can all be added to the POWERLINK network and controlled from the MINT programming language. This greatly simplifies system design and installation, and simultaneously expands the capabilities of the NextMove e100 as a machine control platform.
NextMove e100 can perform interpolation for up to 16 axes, either as a single coordinate group or as an independent sub-group in a multitiple coordinate system with interpolation over the Ethernet POWERLINK network or the built in stepper/servo axes. NextMove e100 is compatible with ABB's Ethernet POWERLINK AC servo drives - MicroFlex e100 and MotiFlex e100.
e100 Ethernet motion products
NextMove e100 is part of the e100 motion family including MotiFlex e100, Mint Machine Modules and range of single phase servo drives, MicroFlex e100 all controlled via Ethernet POWERLINK.
NextMove e100 provides control of up to 16 coordinated axes of motion and many more non-coordinated axes. Axes can be split amongst the three phase MotiFlex e100 drives and single phase MicroFlex e100 drives to suit the application requirements..
