Pay Centroid to do it for you....
Personally, We would get rid of the old control and upgrade to All in One DC

Si me parece una buena opcion, cambiar a uno mas moderno, pero hay una duda que tengo, le escribi a centroid y no aclararon mi duda. El control actual se comunica por medio de una tarjeta PCI, y cables de fibra optica, al cambiar por un ALL IN ONE DC, la comunicacion con el PLC seria como? Porque desde el PLC van los cables de Fibra Optica hacia la PCI, o me dices que tambien debo reemplazar el PLC, o el ALL IN ONE ya tiene incorporada salidas para los cables de FIBRA OPTICA? Como seria la comunicacion entre el PLC hacia el ALL IN ONE? Hay alguna foto referencial de las salidas y conexiones que entran al ALL IN ONE?

Espero pueda entender mi duda. Lo que pasa es que lo que leido y poco entendido es que la comunicacion seria por medio de Cable RJ45 y la tarjeta del PLC no tiene salida RJ45. Es alli donde el ALL IN ONE debe tener tarjeta PCI o algo similar donde conectar los cables de Fibra optica.

If it seems like a good option, change to a more modern one, but there is a question I have, I wrote to centroid and they did not clarify my doubt. The current control communicates through a PCI card, and fiber optic cables, when changing to an ALL IN ONE DC, the communication with the PLC would be like? Because the Fiber Optic cables go from the PLC to the PCI, or are you telling me that I must also replace the PLC, or does ALL IN ONE already have built-in outputs for the FIBER OPTIC cables? How would the communication be between the PLC towards ALL IN ONE? Is there a reference photo of the exits and connections that enter ALL IN ONE?

I hope you can understand my question. What happens is that what I read and little understood is that the communication would be through RJ45 Cable and the PLC card does not have an RJ45 output. It is there where the ALL IN ONE must have a PCI card or something similar where to connect the fiber optic cables.

No more fiber. Windows PC that connects to All in One DC which has PLC inputs and outputs built on with a shielded Ethernet cable. You can reuse your servo motors and their encoders and the cables.


As long as you can follow schematics and have basic Electrical/Electronic skills you should be ok.

Otherwise pay Centroid to setup a new drive with Linux and CNC10 and ship it out to you. You have a report from the old control? It has all your machine parameters

Amigo, primero que nada muchas gracias por dedicar tiempo a responder y aclarar mis dudas.

El ALL IN ONE DC, Incluye PLC? Es decir, seria Pc y ademas PLC, solo yo tendria que recablear todo?

Exactamente que trae el All in One Dc?,

Friend, first of all thank you very much for taking the time to answer and clarify my doubts.

Does the ALL IN ONE DC include PLC? That is, it would be PC and also PLC, only I would have to rewire everything?

Exactly what does the All in One Dc bring?

I would like that option because it is more modern.

Me gustaria esa opcion porque es mas moderna.

All in One has three built on servo drives and the PLC....ALL IN ONE
You have to supply a Windows 10 PC meeting the Centroid software requirements. Not much really

Yes, new more modern control, and running under Windows 10. I believe Centroid will work with you a little bit on the software package since you are upgrading from one of their older controls.

This image that I am sending is the current card or plc that you have, it is a DC3IO, I would remove this card or PLC and instead install the ALLINONE DC, alone, using the same servos?

What I do not want is that after I buy the ALLINONEDC, I do not miss any more element and add more waiting time for arrival, since I am in Venezuela and things are more complicated here for purchases abroad.

Then it would be the ALLINONEDC and what else would I have to buy ???

Your best bet is to Call Centroid with your serial number and discuss your options
