    Description

    AnyNET-I/O ANF1(X) & ANF2(X) Motion Controllers

    The ANF1(X) and ANF2(X) are the first servo/stepper controllers for the AnyNET-I/O product line. The modules offer one or two independent motion control axes that function in an open-loop configuration, or closed loop using the available encoder feedback. Each axis can be used to drive a stepper or a servo with step/direction input capability. The ANF2(X) can synchronize its two axes, giving you the ability to control linear and circular motions in an XY plane.

    Moreover, AMCI's ANF1(X) & ANF2(X) expansion modules allow you to easily interface up to (12) motion axes using a single network connection, which reduces physical wiring and streamlines network traffic.

    No other product rivals the flexibility, performance, and value of AMCI's ANF1(X) & ANF2(X) Motion Controllers.

    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.

    The ANF1(X) & ANF2(X) satisfies a wide range of applications because of its flexible design. Whether you need a single-axis motion controller or a dozen axes of motion control, AMCI's ANF1(X) & ANF2(X) products keeps it simple without sacrificing performance.

    Multiple Motion Controllers: (1) ANF1(X) + (5) ANF1 shown
    The ANF1(X) & ANF2(X) easily expands from 1-to-12 axes of motion control by stacking additional controller 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.
