AML Applications can Communicate Via:
|SERCOS||OPC (server and client)|
|ProfiBus DP||ActiveX (server and controls)|
|Ethernet TCP/IP||DDE (Pipeline)|
|Open Modbus TCP||Melsec I/O|
...and our own generic I/O driver, cleverly named "Generic I/O".
AML Application Programs run on our Cost-Effective Embedded Controller
Your first choice is to run AML applications on Sanyo Denki´s SMS-10, an industrial PC with the embedded VxWorks operating system. The SMS-10 is a complete controller that includes the AML runtime license for a specific number of axes, SERCOS, Ethernet (Modbus TCP or TCP/IP with OPC, ActiveX, or DDE), dual serial ports, and digital I/O with watchdog output. Optional capability includes master encoder with latch input port and PCMCIA slot for addition of DeviceNet or Profibus DP cards.
AML Application Programs run on an Open Controller with Windows NT/2000
Your second option is to run the AML application program on the SMS-OC - a convenient bundled solution that includes an industrial PC, Windows, and the SMS-PCI. Other Windows applications such as Visual Basic, a soft logic application, or an HMI application can run with the AML application program for true open-architecture control. Our OPC, ActiveX Control Suite, or Pipeline (DDE server) allows these other applications to communicate with the AML application. Also, the AML Productivity Suite may run on the target PC which eliminates the need for a separate programmer´s PC and Ethernet connection
As a third alternative, you can use the PC of your choice with Windows NT/2000. In this case, you would purchase the Sanyo Denki SMS-PCI which is the PCI-bus card for the SERCOS interface with the AML runtime license for a specific number of axes.
