    Description

    AnyNET-I/O ANS1E Resolver-based Programmable Limit Switch

    Like all AnyNET-I/O modules, the ANS1E is a PLC-based design can interface with a host controller through various industrial networks including:

    • EtherNet/IP
    • Modbus TCP

    The ANS1E is also the first AnyNET-I/O module to include an integral web server, which allows you to program the ANS1E from any web browser. This allows you to run the ANS1 as an independent product, without the need of a host controller, making it an ideal, cost effective replacement for traditional standalone PLS units.

    Whether your control system utilizes a leading PLC (e.g. Allen-Bradley, Siemens, Schneider, etc), or you're replacing a dated "black box" PLS that no longer satisfies your performance requirements, consider AMCI's ANS1 programmable limit switch as the last PLS you'll ever need.

    PROGRAMMING:
    User Friendly Programming

    PLC-based: The AnyNET-I/O ANS1E is easy to program because it takes advantage of the software already used by your PLC or PAC. The ANS1E is compatible with any PLC that supports the product's available networks since it’s programmed using the input/output registers within the host controller. For example, Allen-Bradley users can configure AMCI’s ANS1 using their RSLogix software, and Schneider customers via Unity Pro. No additional software (or learning curve) is required to add this Programmable Limit Switch to your PLC.

    Users also have the option of configuring & testing the ANS1E using AMCI's Net Configurator software. This PC-based GUI (graphic user interface) can be downloaded at no charge and simplifies the ANS1E's protocol selection, network addressing, sensor set-up (resolution, scaling, etc.), and test operation. Additionally the Configurator software gives you the option to save your setup data in a text file, allowing you to store your data for later use.

    Standalone: The ANS1E is the first AnyNET-I/O module to include an integral web server, which allows you to program the ANS1E from any web browser. This allows you to run the ANS1E as an independent product, without the need of a host controller (PLC). The IP address of the web server is programmable, so all of the modules can be brought into one ethernet switch and programmed from one web browser connection, making it easy and cost effective to modernize your automation control system.

    ANS1E Features

    • A total of forty programs that can be stored on the ANS1E. If the ANS1E is attached to a host controller (e.g. PLC), additional programs can be stored on the host
    • Eight DC and eight relay board outputs. These outputs can be configured as limit switch, fault, counter overflow, or general purpose outputs
    • Eight DC and eight relay board inputs. Inputs can be used to condition the outputs (Enable ANDing), preset machine or limit switch positions, or as general purpose inputs
    • Four setpoint pairs per limit switch as well as On/Off advances and timed output functionality
    • Stitching output programming allows you to create a regular on/off pattern within a setpoint pair. This is useful for placing a glue pattern on a box before it is sealed
    • Three different Enable ANDing tests for conditioning the limit switch outputs.
    • RPM ANDing to condition the outputs based on the speed of the machine
    • 256-bit Shift Register for machines that require that an output fir during a later machine cycle
    • The ANS1E's sixteen inputs can be programmed as Die Protection Monitors with fault counters and five different types of checks to guarantee proper machine operation
    • Brake Monitor that reports both starting and stopping time of the machine
    • A total of six counters that include three batch counters, a total machine revolutions counter, a total parts counter, and a total good parts counter
