Advanced Motion Controls - DxM and DxI/O Technology

POSTED 04/11/2013

DxM and DxI/O Technology from ADVANCED Motion ControlsRecently in February 2013 the editors of the respected engineering resource Design News awarded the first place Golden Mousetrap Award in the drives category to ADVANCED Motion Controls'® DZE… and DZS… plug-in servo drives with ground breaking DxM™ and DxI/O™ technology.

DxM™ and DxI/O™ technology expands control to up to 4 axes of motion plus an additional 280 I/O points while maintaining the same 100µs update rate performance previously only achieved in single axis systems. A less expensive, higher performing solution is not available anywhere else. Significant cost savings is achieved because only one EtherCAT® slave node is needed to control up to 3 less expensive sub-nodes (DxM Technology). Additional cost savings come from eliminating the need for expensive 3rd party network I/O modules (DxI/O Technology).

DxM and DxI/O Technology delivers peak performance and offers scalability only previously found in larger, customized, highly dedicated industrial machines. With ADVANCED Motion Controls' DxM and DxI/O Technologies, application solutions are now available for smaller machinery and desktop equipment like water jet cutters, routers, lab automation equipment, biotech processing equipment, smaller mobile robots, etc. where panel space is a premium or not at all available.

About ADVANCED Motion Controls
ADVANCED Motion Controls, a U.S. company in business for 25 years now, was founded with the idea of designing and manufacturing lower cost / higher power density servo drives. The company's focus remains to create and deliver the best motion control drives for brushed or brushless servo motors.
