Optional Components for EC01 System
Advanced and production applications can also benefit from these add-ons:
AnaEnc-Expansion: Used for controlling spindle speed and read rpm/position feedback. This feature enables 0-10V analog output and one Encoder channel on the EC01 controller. It is required to be purchased along with the controller if needed.
7535 Board: The I/O Termination board (7535P or 7535N) provides additional optically isolated digital I/O on J1 socket. Each board has 16 input terminals and 8 output terminals. All I/O terminals are clearly marked for quick and easy installation.
ECAT-EXTIO: Enables I/O functionality on J1 socket(3.3V non-isolated, higher voltage may cause permanent damage). This feature is included with the purchase of 7535 I/O Board. It can also be purchased individually wihtout the 7535 hardware.
Motor Activations: This software feature specifies how many motors the EC01 is able to control at one time. The base EC01 comes with 2 activated motors. This can be upgraded to 3, 4, 6, 8, or 12 at any time.
Custom DRO Support: This software feature allows the user to map PDOs to Mach4 Registers. For example Torque can be mapped and viewed in Mach4 as a DRO. This Software feature is only available on 6 or more activated motor EC01.
MACRO-PROGRAMMING: This software feature allows the user to write custom programs (In C language)which can be downloaded to the controller for fast execution.
Advantages of MACRO-PROGRAMMING Include:
- Real-time program execution
- Ultra-fast I/O manipulation
- Extends Mach4 Functionality
- Standalone Operation (No PC Control)
ECAT-CLOOP Activation: This software feature allows Closed-Loop operation on the EC01. Requires the use of ECS1.
 - These items may be purchased any time before or after shipping as they are software features
