I have a question regarding Argon drives. I have not made a purchase yet,

I am considering Argon drives as a replacement for Allen-Bradley 1398-DDM servo drives. Has anyone attempted this before? How did it work out?

Also, are there any plans for adding additional standard industrial communication protocols to the Argon drives? For instance Modbus RTU or TCP, or CanOpen?

Thanks,

Hi Timothy

If you have a servo motor that matches Argon specifications, you can be sure to get very precise motion control.

Do you already have a servo motor you need to control?

What comes to standard field buses, we are currently develpoing a ethercat/-net <-> simplemotion bridge:
