EtherFOX

The gateway from EtherCAT® and Ethernet to SimpleMotion drives.

Wondering how to build large control systems and integrate IONI, ATOMI or ARGON as part of it? Wonder no more, EtherFOX brings the awesomeness into Ethernet and EtherCAT® networks. One EtherFOX acts as a multi-axis bridge between a standard Ethernet or EtherCAT® network and a SimpleMotion network. One EtherFOX can control up to 10 SimpleMotion enabled drives at real-time and synchronous pace. As bonus, EtherFOX adds also several general purpose I/O’s at your disposal.
