MotionLinx-Ai Advanced Intelligence Drive Control

MotionLinx-Ai is our EtherCat two zone high speed controller. Designed for a wide variety of applications in the conveying and machine building industries, it can drive two Senergy-Ai or PGD-Ai drives. A maximum of four sensors can also be connected via two M8 Connectors.

No proprietary software is required to use MotionLinx Ai and it follows the specified standard for EtherCAT networking. Connect a master PC/PLC and quickly gain control over every MotionLinx card in the system.  Write your own logic via an EtherCAT PLC to control the MotioinLinx-Ai module with the extremely fast and stable EtherCAT network.  Preventive maintenance data can also be retrieved from MotionLinx-Ai by SDO data transfer.

Due to its small footprint, MotionLinx-Ai can be easily  integrated in virtually all environments.  It shares the exact same foot print as ConveyLinx-Ai2 making it perfect for standardization on small or low height conveyor side frames..... even if a protection rating of IP54 is not required.

MotionLinx-Ai opens the world of deterministic high-speed bus control to PULSEROLLER - sharing those network benefits along with the great benefits of the Ai technology.

  • Reduces Cost and Saves Time
  • Super Compact Design
  • Deterministic Network
  • Collects Important Information
  • Robust M8 Connections
  • CE ETL UL and IP54
  • Reduces Time and Cost:

    With robust M8 connectors, it is truly plug and play.  A single network wire is connected to the most upstream module, and you gain complete and full access to every module downstream via a daisy chained network.

    Uses a Deterministic Network 

    Deterministic networks aim to migrate time-critical high-reliability industrial control to packet-based networks and in particular, Internet Protocol (IP).  Deterministic networks are great for industrial machines with time critical data which can boost production rates by using real time data.  In applications where even a millisecond could be the difference between hundreds or thousands of dollars, it's clear why you'd choose a deterministic network over others.

    Compactly Designed:

    You can fit it in spaces never before right on the machine. More efficient use of space gives you plenty of room for other necessary components.

    There are applications - food processing comes to mind - when the ability to washdown a conveyor system is absolutely mandatory. That means the components you use in that conveyor system must be washdown rated so they will continue to operate properly after they've been pressure washed.

    There is a saying that “all good things must come to an end”. For some things it is too soon and for others, not soon enough. For the “too soon” category, I can think of my favorite bottle of wine, a Phish concert, or heck even the series finale for StarTrek TNG (two part episode of the same name “All Good Things…”) which by the way
