Galil Motion Control (Rocklin, CA) has announced its new
EtherCAT slave I/O controller. The RIO-574x0 is packed with
digital and analog I/O to be used remotely in an EtherCAT
automation system. Although the RIO-574x0 can be used
with any generic EtherCAT master, it is designed to integrate
into an EtherCAT system with Galil’s DMC-500x0 EtherCAT
master. Features include:
■ Sixteen opto-isolated digital inputs.
■ Sixteen high-power (500 mA sourcing)
opto-isolated digital outputs.
■ Eight analog inputs ( 4 to 20 mA
option available) and eight
■ Dimensions of
4. 24 x 4.81 x 2.35”.
ACS Motion Control (Bloomington, MA) has launched
a series of EtherCAT drive modules for servo, step, and
voice coil motors. Featuring a dual/quad-axis universal
drive, the UDMSD Series is designed for motors with a
continuous power range of 10 to 100 W (200 W peak).
■ Support for up to four digital incremental encoder
channels and up to two absolute encoder channels.
■ A Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) to support other
■ The ability to operate under any ACS EtherCAT Master
■ The ability to manage networks with up to 64 axes and
thousands of I/O points.
■ Availability with currents of 1.25/2.5 A and 2.5/5 A
■ Power via a 12 to 48 VDC drive supply voltage and by
a separate 24 VDC ± 20% control supply.
Linear Unhoused Voice Coil Actuators
BEI Kimco (Vista, CA) has introduced a family of linear
unhoused Voice Coil Actuators (VCAs) with aperture
sizes of 15, 20, and 24. 9 mm. The through-hole design
allows an OEM assembly to pass directly through the
middle of the actuator, resulting in reduced weight, fewer
parts, and a more compact product overall. Features
■ Availability in three standard models.
■ Capabilities for low out-gassing.
■ Actuator sizes that measure as small as 1.5” (38.1
mm) in diameter and 1.56” (39.6 mm) in length (at
■ Total strokes ranging from 0.25 to 0.45”.
■ Peak forces from 14 to 45.2 lbs., respectively.
