The MAXnet is a 5-axis motion controller for automated equipment, robotics, and applications requiring accuracy, precision, and flexibility. The Ethernet interface utilizes standard TCP/IP protocol for compatibility and can virtually be controlled and/or monitored from almost anywhere. A high-speed RS232 serial interface is included at baud rates of 9600 to 115.2k. In addition to the limits, home and motion control signals, the MAXnet includes 8 bi-directional I/O, 5-outputs, 2-analog inputs and 1-analog output (the 5 axis). OMS motion controllers have a 35+ year reputation of reliability and performance and the MAXnet is no exception.
On-board Flash memory can store macro programs for stand-alone applications. The MAXnet firmware can be upgraded through the Ethernet or serial interfaces allowing the controller to be embedded in systems without the need for removal. The IODnet interconnect module stacks on the MAXnet for a compact system with convenient screw terminal connection. A key feature of the MAXnet is the expansion interface for daughter boards that provide unmatched flexibility and help minimize the need for third party controls. This interface utilizes the Port-X interface of the on-board PowerPC to control these specialized add-on solutions that are tightly coupled to the motion for most any application.
Requirements that fall between a custom daughter board and the need for additional features OMS can customize the controller to provide a competitive advantage that could not otherwise be realized.
