Evolution of Ethernet in Control Systems. A New White Paper from Galil

Authors:  Robin Riley, Ann Keffer, Wayne Baron  Galil Motion Control Ethernet was developed in the 1970’s and was started being used commercially in the 1980’s.   By the end of the 1980’s it was the dominant network technology.  It was initially used to connect computer systems and peripherals in a Local Area Network (LAN) and quickly … Continue reading Evolution of Ethernet in Control Systems.

Asynchronous vs. Deterministic Communication and Types of Motion Controller Topologies

A motion control system is a system that controls the position, velocity, force or pressure of some machine.  As an example, an electromechanical based motion control system consists of a motion controller (the brains of the system), a drive (which takes the low power command signal from the motion controller and converts it into high … Continue reading Asynchronous vs. Deterministic Communication and Types of Motion Controller Topologies
