AMCI has expanded its selection of Underwriters Laboratories (UL)-listed stepper drives, which are designed to help machine builders and OEMs to improve safety and performance.

Utilising Rockwell Automation licensed technology, the 7272 Endat Interface PLC module is 100 per cent compatible with the 1756 Control Logix PLC.

The 7272 Endat interface module directly interfaces with all Heidenhain Endat 2.1 rotary encoders, high-accuracy angle encoders and linear scales.

The module is digital, two-channel and bi-directional, enabling it to transmit position values, as well as to read and update information stored in the encoder, or save new information.

Sensor data, such as application-specific parameters, compensation tables, error detection and diagnostic capabilities, are provided with the module, to provide greater system reliability.

Several other features come as standard.

Endat position sensors are bidirectional and, thanks to the serial transmission method supported by AMCI’s 7272 module, only four signal lines are required.

They are also self-commissioning, reporting all the encoder’s properties to the controller at power up.

OEMs are able to download application-specific data to the encoder’s freely definable memory area.

By using the AMCI Endat interface module, use of these valuable functions is made available through the Control Logix PLC.

AMCI’s Endat interface module, when paired with a Heidenhain Endat encoder, is claimed to provide a feedback solution for all applications in motion control.

Examples of applications that benefit from this pairing include machine tools, printing and robotics.
