EtherCAT (Ethernet) with CiA402 Drive profile for MAC motor and ServoStep

11 January 2019

JVL Industri Elektronik A/S, a producer in the field of integrated servo and stepper motors, is announcing the CiA402 Drive profile and syncronisation for EtherCAT.

Ready for Industry 4.0 and IIoT (Industrial IoT)

The JVL EtherCAT module is equipped with two Ethernet connectors and a built-in switch, enabling line, star, tree and ring topology without any extra expensive hardware. The JVL EtherCAT module has several LEDs, enabling technicians and operators to get a quick status overview. There are also opto-isolated digital I/Os embedded in the module, enabling control of extra sensors etc. without external I/O modules. This minimises the number of devices on the net and reduces cable costs.

All connectors are rugged M12 connectors suitable for the rough conditions in industrial environments.

Furthermore, all registers in the JVL MAC motor are accessible via the EtherCAT connection, thereby enabling complete control of motor configuration and motion.

The JVL EtherCAT module is very easy to use and configure via a predefined setup, and commissioning is easy using the JVL MacTalk application software

EtherCAT Industrial Ethernet

The EtherCAT module with CiA402 drive profile for JVL servo and stepper motors support the synchronised position (CSP) and synchronised velocity (CSV) modes as well as the old modes profile position, profile velocity and many homing methods. The synchronised cycle times for MIS Integrated Stepper can be 1, 2, 3 and 4mS. MAC Integrated Servomotor have 1 and 2mS cycle times. Both have a maximum of ±1µs of jitter.

The JVL EtherCAT equipped motors are plug and play compatible with Beckhoff PLC’s, and also compatible with other manufacturers of EtherCAT masters such as Omron, Lenze, Trio and others.
