Home / Electrical V2 / Baldor V2 / Next Move e100 Motion Controller

Next Move e100 Motion Controller


The NextMove e100 builds on the proven NextMove controller family of products and now integrates management of real-time Ethernet networks using the industry standard protocol ETHERNET Powerlink. Drives, I/O devices, sensors, absolute encoders can be added to the Powerlink network and controlled from the Mint programming language. This greatly simplifies system design and installation, and simultaneously expands the capabilities of the NextMove e100 as a machine control platform.
NextMove e100 can perform interpolation on 8, 12 or 16 axes, as either a single coordinate group or as multiple coordinate systems operating independently, with their own scale factors and move buffers. Interpolation can be performed over the ETHERNET Powerlink network or the built in stepper/servo axes. NextMove e100 is compatible with Baldor's ETHERNET Powerlink AC servo drive, NextMove e100 can coordinate up to 200 ETHERNET Powerlink DS402 compliant drives. These additional axes provide simple point-to-point motion, homing sequences, jog control and torque demand functions. MicroFlex e100, the AC servo drive, can be configured in this mode and is ideal for axis functions such as guides, indexers, conveyors, tension rollers etc.
An onboard complement of I/O allows NextMove e100 to handle many machine control functions. I/O can be further expanded over the ETHERNET Powerlink network or via the onboard CANopen network.
