AdLink Technology releases motion controller for automation processes
Edge computing company Adlink Technology has released the SuperCAT series, a software-defined EtherCAT motion controller.
The release will help streamline the integration of automation processes, the firm says, while offering cost-effective hardware and effortless software configuration.
Adlink Technology says the SuperCAT series surpasses hardware limitations such as computing power and bandwidth, enabling seamless communication within the system and boosting overall performance and productivity in industries such as semiconductors, optoelectronics, and electric manufacturing.
It adds that the SuperCAT series outperforms hardware-based controllers by extending the capability from 64 to 128 axes and achieving a faster cycle time of 125μs based on computing power. Integrating with RTOS (Real-time Operating System), SuperCAT enables efficient multitasking, ensuring precise and deterministic execution by simultaneous development across multiple teams developing motion control, machine vision, and data processing.
The SuperCAT series is available in both USB and file license versions, accommodating different setup preferences and hardware performance for industrial PCs that support Intel Atom to Xeon processors.
