Trio – Flexslice 2 Servo Axes (P374)

Analogue 2 Servo Axes P374
This module is sold boxed in units of 10 as P474.

Our new P374 2 Axis Servo slice will click-in to our EtherCAT Flexslice I/O range as well as the 64 axis Flex-6 Nano Motion Coordinator. The slice will enable integration of non-EtherCAT servo drives, stepper drives and encoders.

An advantage of the I/O slice approach compared to a traditional PLC for analogue and stepper integration is a saving on footprint and cost, combined with our motion-first specialisation.

It supports incremental encoder inputs. If configured for stepper / pulse output an axis can be pulse+direction or quadrature simulated encoder output. Two 20 way MDR connectors (Axis 0 and 1) provide a reliable shielded connection for high speed signals. Each MDR connector supports all the signals for full closed loop control of a servo axis.
