With its iSA decentralized controller, AMK is supplying a system that is fully functional without a control cabinet.
Place motion control functions at the spot where they are needed. With this idea AMK established the basis for modular machines that are truly free of control cabinets. The decentralized iSA has a three-phase power connection and provides both a DC bus supply for servo drives and an integrated 24 V supply and control intelligence including motion control. The compact design of the iSA is completed by a lean real-time Linux operating system.
The real-time capability of the system is ensured via EtherCAT. With cross-communication in master-slave operation, the controller can also be used in combination with other controllers as a gateway for Ethernet/IP and Profibus.
The iSA decentralized controller is ideal for modular machine construction because subsystems only have to be connected to the three-phase power and incorporated in the control system via the real-time Ethernet interface. The water-proof controller in IP65 provides for flexible construction.
Powerful motion control and technology functions for easy programming of machines and plants, for example:
- Virtual master axis
- Electronic cam
- Print mark control
- NC motion
The internationally proven CODESYS programming platform enables programming according to IEC 61131-3.
- High-accuracy synchronization of many axes with only one controller
- Cross-communication in real-time across several levels synchronized with high accuracy
- EtherCAT master and slave (option)
