    Description

    ANE2(X) AnyNET-I/O SSI Interface Networked I/O

    AMCI’s AnyNET-I/O ANE2(X) SSI interface product is the easiest, most flexible way to bring SSI sensor data into any PLC-based control system. AMCI's ANE2(X) connects a wide variety of SSI sensors to your PLC using a standard network connection, and it programs using the host controller's (PLC) native software - nothing new to buy, nothing new to learn!

    The two channel ANE2(X) product is a direct interface to most Gray Code or Binary SSI sensors, including rotary encoders, linear sensors, barcode readers, and laser distance sensors. Additional ANE2(X) features include: position preset, count direction, position scaling, and differential inputs that can be programmed as general purpose inputs, to Apply the Preset Value, or to capture the scaled data value.

    Expansion Capabilities

    AMCI's ANE2(X) expansion modules allow you to easily interface up to (12) SSI sensors using a single network connection, which reduces physical wiring and streamlines network traffic.

    No other product can rival the flexibility, performance, and value of AMCI's ANE2(X) SSI interface.

    PLC-Based Specialty I/O Solutions

    AMCI’s AnyNET-I/O family is a distributed I/O system that combines hard to find specialty functions with a network interface, simplifying installation and cutting costs. The product family allows users to “mix & match” functions, including stepper motion
    control and a variety of sensor interfaces, in a single solution.

    AnyNET-I/O is compatible with any networked PLC/PAC and easily programs through the host PLC’s software.  Its innovative product design simplifies installation, optimizes network performance, and ensures system integrity.

    Multple SSI Interface: (1) ANE2(X) + (5) ANE2 shown below
    The ANE2(X) easily expands from a 2-to-12 channel SSI interface by stacking additional interface modules alongside the “gateway”, and it only requires a single network connection for all communication. This innovative product design simplifies installation, optimizes network performance, and ensures system integrity. Please see the diagram below for details.
