Communications Option Modules

 Communications Option Modules

Communications option modules

Control Techniques communications option modules are available for most fieldbus and Ethernet networks that are common in industry. 

Trouble-free operation with other manufacturers' equipment

Where possible, our option modules are independently certified to ensure conformance with relevant standards so that users can be sure of trouble-free operation. 

High-speed deterministic control

Control Techniques communications option modules have direct, high-speed access to all drive parameters. In addition, for high-performance servo networks such as SERCOS and EtherCAT, the drive control loops are synchronized with the communications system to eliminate delays and enhance performance.
