EtherCAT synchronizes 529 axes to automate a kinetic art installation of the Scandinavian Design Group. Beckhoff Servo Terminals move the virtual ocean: The kinetic installation consists of a field of 529 plexiglas tubes, constantly moved in such a way that they create a 3 D image of undulation in the eye of the viewer.

The TwinCAT software system turns almost any PC-based system into a real-time control with multiple PLC, NC, CNC and/or robotics runtime systems.
AM8100 | Servomotors for compact drive technology
The AM8100 motors are specially designed for operation with the compact drive components in the smallest of mounting spaces.
The EL7201 servomotor EtherCAT Terminal, with integrated resolver interface, offers high servo performance in a very compact design. The fast control technology, based on field-oriented current and PI speed control, supports fast and highly dynamic positioning tasks. The monitoring of numerous parameters, such as overvoltage and undervoltage, overcurrent, terminal temperature or motor load via the calculation of a I²T model, offers maximum operational reliability. EtherCAT, as a high-performance system communication, and CAN-over-EtherCAT (CoE), as the application layer, enable ideal interfacing with PC-based control technology. The latest power semiconductors guarantee minimum power loss and enable feedback into the DC-Link when braking. 16 LEDs indicate status, warning and error messages as well as possibly active limitations.
