New firmware for protocol support and CAN network integration
This supervisor offers full multi-axis motion control when combined with intelligent servo drivers. It offers new firmware supporting DS305 configuration, DS402 motion control and DS401 CAN network IO integration protocols. It is also integrated with CAN network IOs, according to DS401 protocol. It uses distributed motion control architecture to spread the processing power across the network. It relieves the burden on the system's processor by instructing Elmo's servo drives to perform tasks without monitoring by the system. It can work as an Ethernet-CAN gateway and a full motion controller. It has two CAN ports, each of which can handle up to 64 axes. Other ports handle up to 16 digital inputs, 16 digital outputs and four analog inputs. Elmo Motion Controlhttp://rbi.ims.ca/4928-628
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
