The AnyNET I/O ANR2 is a full featured 2-channel LVDT/RVDT interface that communicates with the host controller (PLC or PAC) over the network. The interface satisfies a wide range of applications because of its flexible design. It easily mounts on a standard DIN rail, simplifying installation and lowering costs.
The ANR2 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. No additional software is required to use the LVDT/RVDT interface with the PLC/PAC. Users have the option of configuring & testing the ANR2 using AMCI's convenient PC-based Net Configurator software (downloaded at no charge).
AnyNET I/O easily expands from 1 to 6 I/O modules by stacking additional units onto the “gateway”, and only requires a single network connection for all communication. This solution enables the support of up to 12 LVDT or RVDT sensors over a single network connection, which reduces physical wiring and streamlines data traffic over the network.
AMCI’s AnyNET I/O family now includes: ANR2 LVDT/RVDT Signal Conditioner, ANA2 Resolver Interface, ANE2 SSI Interface, ANG1 Stepper Controller/Drive, etc. For more information on AMCI’s AnyNET I/O family, visit our website.
