The NextMove e100 motion controller provides solutions for
the automation industry with management of real-time Ethernet
networks and Baldor's easy to use Mint programming language
via the industry standard protocol ETHERNET Powerlink.
Drives, I/O devices, sensors, absolute encoders
can 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 on 8,
12 or 16 axes, as either a single coordinate
group or as multiple coordinate systems operating
independently, with their own scale factors and
move buffers. Interpolation can be performed
over the ETHERNET Powerlink network or the built
in stepper/servo axes. NextMove e100 is compatible
with Baldor's ETHERNET Powerlink AC servo drive,
NextMove e100 can coordinate up to 200 ETHERNET
Powerlink DS402 complient drives. These additional
axes provide simple point-to-point motion, homing
sequences, jog control and torque demand functions. MicroFlex e100, the AC servo drive,
can be configured in this mode and is ideal for
axis functions such as guides, indexers, conveyors,
tension rollers etc.
An onboard complement of I/O allows NextMove
e100 to handle many machine control functions.
I/O can be further expanded over the ETHERNET
Powerlink network or via the onboard CANopen
Versatile programming is provided by means of MintMT - multitasking Basic, embedded 'C'
or the supplied ActiveX components.
NextMove e100 is available with a USB port programming
port and user selectable RS232/485 serial port.
