Steeplechase VLC software from Phoenix Contact now features integration of the SynqNet motion network when used with the RapidCode VLC driver. The software with integrated SynqNet provides a programming environment for real-time motion control, which simplifies development and reduces the need to purchase, learn, and maintain multiple programming packages, says the company. A SynqNet-based system with Steeplechase VLC and the RapidCode VLC driver can control up to 256 axes of motion from a single Steeplechase VLC runtime program, and it can reduce problematic analog wiring and intricate handshaking between PCs, stand-alone controllers, and motor amplifiers. The RapidCode VLC driver, developed by Robotic Systems Integration Inc., provides VLC programmers with a common set of system motion commands, such as jogging, point-to-point positioning, position tracking, contouring, linear and circular interpolation, and electronic gearing. www.phoenixcon.com Phoenix Contact
