The I-8094H is a 4-axis stepping/pulse-type servo motor control module that can be used on any of the ICP DAS PAC series controllers, and is suitable for general-purpose motion applications. The I-8094H has the full functions of the I-8094A with the addition of an FRnet port, which allows the fast remote I/O of the module to be expanded easily. This two-wired FRnet can automatically scan its 128 DI and 128 DO channels within a period of 2.88 ms. The internal CPU allows the module to be used to perform motion operations without requiring a PAC.
When working with a PAC, it also allows users to perform additional functions by integrating user-defined subroutines (Macro functions) from an external source, meaning that customized proprietary processes (know-how) can be embedded in the module. The I-8094H module also contains a high-performance motion ASIC. In addition to its wide speed range, this intelligent motion controller also has a variety of motion control functions built in, such as 2/3-axis linear interpolation, 2-axis circular interpolation, T/S-curve acceleration/deceleration, numerous synchronous actions, automatic homing, and others.
A major advantage is that the majority of the I-8094H motion control functions are performed by the high-performance motion ASIC with little load on the processor. While driving the motors, the motion status, and the status of the other I/O channels on the PAC modules, can still be monitored. As the CPU loading requirements of the I-8094H is minimal, one or more motion modules may be used with a single PAC controller. ICP DAS also provides a variety of functions and examples that can be used to reduce the need for additional programming by users, making it a highly cost-effective solution for motion control application developers.
