Application of MECHATROLINK-II Fieldbus in Multi-Axis Embedded CNC System
Recently, the application of ﬁeldbus is becoming a trend in the development of CNC system towards decentralisation, network and multi-axis linkage. It is anticipated that ﬁeldbus will be one of the leading technologies in the area of numerical control before long. Meanwhile, embedded system has been widely used in numerical control field to solve the reliability and real-time problems. In order to give full play to the advantages of embedded systems, the MECHATROLINK-II fieldbus is introduced to solve the transmission bottleneck of servo communications and multi-axis synchronous control problems. And it is proved that the application scheme combined fieldbus and embedded system is successful and valid by a large amount of performance testings.
