ETHERNET Powerlink (EPL)

ETHERNET Powerlink (EPL) expands the ACR family by enabling real-time motion control via Ethernet. The high-bandwidth digital communications network enhances machine performance and configuration possibilities while reducing set-up time and installation complexity.

ETHERNET Powerlink is a deterministic, real-time Ethernet motion bus solution connecting motion controller to servo drives and I/O points using standard Ethernet hardware. EPL is an open standard communication protocol, developed to achieve the timing and synchronization required in high-performance automation and motion control applications.

Parker ACR 9000


The ACR9000 is Parker’s premier standalone motion controller, capable of controlling up to 8 axes of motion. The ACR9000 excels as a standalone machine and motion controller, interfacing with or working alongside a PLC.

The ACR9000 includes easy-to-use projectdevelopment tools that enable fast, efficient application creation and maintenance. The ACR9000 is the solution for standalone applications requiring industry-leading performance in an affordable and easy-to-use package.
