This space-efficient package also provides uncommitted I/O for easy integration into any EtherCAT application. The DMC-52xx0 is offered in 2-, 4-, 8-, 16- and 32-axis formats. Coordinated moves can be done within banks of up to 8 axes and the DMC-52xx0 operates in cyclic synchronous position (CSP) mode. In this mode, the servo control loop is closed on the EtherCAT drive while the controller sends motion profile commands at a rate of 1 kHz. The DMC-52xx0 is designed for applications such as point-to-point positioning, position tracking, contouring, linear and circular interpolation, and electronic gearing.

The DMC-52xx0 features eight uncommitted opto-isolated inputs and eight uncommitted opto-isolated high power outputs. It also includes eight uncommitted analog inputs and eight uncommitted analog outputs. The DMC-52xx0 comes with one Ethernet port for communication with a host PC and one EtherCAT port to communicate with EtherCAT drives. Multiple EtherCAT drives can be linked together in a daisy-chain configuration and connected to the controller’s EtherCAT port, simplifying wiring and decreasing setup time. One USB port is also provided for alternative communication with a host PC.
