Traditionally, control systems are designed in a single computer with discrete analog and digital signals to the power amplifiers or other components. Emerging real-time bus technologies open the possibility to modularize such a control system and simplify the system design. It offers more flexibility and better maintainability. The system control can be distributed between state-of-the-art servo drives, digital IO, sensors and the control computer. All the components are connected via a real-time network which communicates the data deterministically. An implementation with this new approach is shown and explained with a large scale 10 degrees-of-freedom motion simulator.
