AS Series Motion CPU

AS series motion CPU features EtherCAT/CANopen motion control interface and multiple communication ports. It also offers motion control function blocks complying with international standards and synchronizes up to 16/24 real axes in one update cycle. AS series motion CPUs are widely used in diverse automated equipment such as woodworking, packaging, printing, labeling, textile and pharmaceutical industries.

Product Introduction

Features & Benefits

  • Up to 32 axes can be synchronized (including virtual axes)
    - AS516E(EtherCAT): 16 axes/1ms, max. 16 real axes
    - AS524C(CANopen): 4 axes/2ms, max. 24 real axes
  • Offers motion function blocks complying with international standards, supporting Jerk and BufferMode to enable non-stop operation between motion paths
  • Supports encoder axes and virtual axes. No need to purchase additional encoder modules Easy-to-use basic motion control features:
    - Single-axis speed/position/homing/torque control commands
  • Advanced motion features to fulfill complex processing requirements:
    - Electronic gear, electronic cam and rotary cut applications function blocks
    - G code/group axes commands: supports up to 8-axis linear/arc/helical interpolation
  • Supports AS series I/O modules with faster I/O response to CPU
  • Control program compatible with new generation DVP-MC series motion CPU, making effortless platform transition between DVP and AS motion controllers
  • Supports 3-party EtherCAT slaves (AS516E*), allowing a more flexible system structure
    *Note: will be supported in future updates of AS516E
