The FM-3E Ethernet Programming Module transforms EN and MDS drives into fully programmable, single-axis motion controllers and adds 8 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs. Profibus (FM-3PB) and DeviceNet (FM-3DN) options are also available.
For information on FM-3DN (DeviceNet) and FM-3PB (Profibus), see the Options tab on this page.
The FM-3E Ethernet Programming Module allows the user to create programs to sequence motion, I/O control and other machine operations in one environment. Used in conjunction with the Assignments or “virtual wiring” feature, these programs provide the user with a powerful and easy-to-use programming environment.
With removable terminal block connectors for I/O and a pluggable sync cable for master encoder connections, setup of the FM-3E hardware is quick and clean. For diagnostics, the LCD keypad display on the front of the module gives the user a quick and handy way to change parameters, monitor feedback parameters, check module and drive revisions, change baud rates, view I/O states, and much more! Profibus (FM-3PB) and DeviceNet (FM-3DN) options are also available.
