Parker Ethernet Powerlink solves this problem Newsletter Signup A pplications Pneumatic Gripper in blast room Parker announces Ethernet Powerlink! Meet the rising star of the Ethernet motionbus world. ETHERNET Powerlink is a high-speed, digital motionbus solution connecting a motion controller to multiple drives and I/O points using standard Ethernet networking hardware. This centralized, real-time communication system for automation and motion control has helped make Ethernet deterministic for real-time industrial applications. One way to better understand this technology is to examine a number of its ancillary components. Motionbus A motionbus is a digital communications network that replaces the traditional analog +/- 10V command signal between a motion controller and a drive. In today?s digital world, it doesn?t make sense to pass an analog signal from a digital controller to a digital drive. When we do this (and most drives still do ?
