AH Series Motion CPU

AH Motion is the advanced motion control series with dedicated motion control CPUs and shares the same modules with AH series PLCs. Through the motion control network, such as EtherCAT, AH Motion CPU can perform high-speed, high-precision machine control with the connected servo drives on the motion network.

Product Introduction

Features & Benefits

Standard Motion Control System

  • Provides EtherCAT, DMCNET and pulse train solutions for customers.
  • Motion modules can independently take care of both the logic and motion control. Users can write and download the programs to the motion modules.
  • All motion modules support the standard motion control system.
  • All motion modules can be installed on the local backplanes
  • Motion control functions:

     Performance:

     - Pulse train module: Max. 1 MHz output

     - DMCNET module: Min. synchronization time at 12 axes is 1 ms

     - EtherCAT module: Min. synchronization time at 8 / 16 / 32 axes is 0.5 / 1 / 2 ms

  • Supports UD / PD / AB / 4AB input modes
  • Supports MPG inputs / E-Cam / G-code / 2 ~ 6 axes linear interpolation / 2 axes arc interpolation / 3 axes helical interpolation

Note: The EtherCAT motion modules (AHxxEMC-5A) do not yet have support installed on the I/O slots.

Compact Motion Control System

  • Provides EtherCAT, DMCNET and pulse train solutions for customers.
  • AHxxEMC-5A motion controller can be installed on the CPU slot of the specific motion backplane and
  • Compact motion control system does not support the expansion backplane.
  • Motion modules can be installed on the I/O slot of the motion backplane.
  • Motion control functions:

Integrated Motion Programming

ISPSoft V3 integrates the logic and motion program editors into one software. Customers can use standard PLCopen® function blocks, as well as Delta’s self-developed function blocks to easily achieve different control requirements. (from ISPSoft introduction page)
