7i29 via ethernet? was created by snoozer77
Hi Guys,

Might be a silly question, but just wondering if it would be possible to run a smart serial board from a 7i44 (or my pc ethernet port) to drive 2 x 7i29's?

Was using original servo drives, so my control pc is quite a distance away from my machine electrical cabinet. Now want to use 7i29's in same location as original drives, but dont know the best way to wire the drives over the 2 or so meter distance.

Any suggestions would be great.

Thank Matt

Yes, you could use a 7I93 Ethernet card to drive up to 4 7I29s

Sserial would theoretically be possible with a 7I90 but that's more of a firmware project

Thank you, that sounds great.

The 7i93 doesnt seem to be listed in the store.mesanet.com. ??

Also wondering if there is any benifit in running a PCI based 5i24 over the ethernet 7i80HD ??

Thanks Matt

Sorry for some reason the 7I93 was disabled in the store (fixed)

Ethernet advantages:
isolation of all signals
simple cabling

PCI advantages
Somewhat simpler setup
Supports higher servo thread rates than Ethernet
