The RMC75E one- and two-axis motion controllers from Delta Computer Systems (Vancouver, WA) support Ethernet communications that can be used to download parameters and variables to modify motion control programs from a master controller such as a PLC or industrial PC. The interface features speeds of 10/100 Mbps with full- or half-duplex operation analog with auto-negotiation and auto-MDix crossover detection.

The device provides closed-loop position, speed, and pressure/force control for hydraulic, pneumatic, and electric servo applications. Feedback transducer module options include analog, magnetostrictive, and synchronous serial interface. The controller provides a 12-Mbps USB interface that is used for controller configuration and programming through a standard “B” receptacle for communication to PCs.
