Moog Animatics' I/O Device CAN Bus Master Video
This video demonstrates a simple implementation of the new Moog Animatics I/O Device CAN Bus Master capability. The use of CANopen® to master I/O modules allows I/O expansion for the SmartMotor that has not been available until now. Machines with large I/O requirements can now be handled by a single SmartMotor™.
Multiple SmartMotors and multiple I/O devices may be on the same CAN bus. When combined with Combitronic™ motor-to-motor communications, this allows for complex, multi-axis, multi-I/O-device network control!
This advanced capability and other standard SmartMotor features will reduce your development time, reduce machine build and replication costs, and improve your speed to market!
