Multi-Axis Controller Expands Capabilities


A multi-axis motion controller that includes a high-speed EtherCAT-to-EtherCAT bridge to address the needs of highly demanding modern equipment, the SPiiPlusES combines ACS' powerful motion controller capabilities with an external EtherCAT network master controller. The SPiiPlusES is used both as a node in any EtherCAT Automation Controller network, and as a EtherCAT Master controlling up to 64 axes and thousands of I/O.

Acting as an EtherCAT node, the SPiiPlusES supports the standard DS402 drive protocol as well as manufacturer specific commands.

As an EtherCAT Master Controller, the SPiiPlusES controls up to 64 fully synchronized axes with an EtherCAT cycle rate up to 5kHz. The network can be comprised of any ACS Universal Drive Modules, NanoPWM Drive Modules, I/O modules, or EtherCAT modules.


SPiiPlusES as a node

  • Can be managed by any EtherCAT Automation Controller
  • Standard DS402 protocol supporting up to 8 axes
  • With manufacturer's specific commands supporting up to 64 axes
  • Distributed clock
  • Up to 5kHz EtherCAT cycle rate


SPiiPlusES as an EtherCAT Master

  • Identical to SPiiPlusEC, the most powerful EtherCAT Motion Controller
  • Up to 64 axes and many I/Os
  • Up to 5kHz EtherCAT cycle rates
  • for cable failure detection and recovery
  • Can be synchronized to the distributed clock of the external network
