The Master Link MLK-FZ card manages the data exchange between the central unit of the Z32 CNC FlorenZ Series and all the peripherals (servodrives and I/O's).

The MLK module connections are:

  • RTE (Real Time Ethernet): connection with the Z32 CNC central unit
  • Z-Link: optical fiber bus for digital I/O's, analog references, analog inputs, encoder inputs (2mS sampling time)
  • Z-Star2: optical fiber bus for SPevo digital servodrives (250μS sampling time)
Master Link
  • Allows PE3 I/O modules mounted beside (see I/O Modules description)
  • Manages Z-Link I/O peripherals
  • Manages directly up to 8 SPevo digital servodrives through the on-board Z-Star2 channel
Master Link EXP+FZ1
  • The additional Z-Star2 channel on the expansion card EXP-FZ1, manages 8 digital SPevo servodrives, allowing a total of 16 digital SPevo servodrives managed
  • The presence of the EXP-FZ1 doesn't allow PE3 modules mounted beside
Master link EXP-FZ3
  • The additional three Z-Star2 channels on the expansion card EXP-FZ3, manages 8 digital SPevo servodrives per channel, allowing a total of 32 digital SPevo servodrives managed
  • The presence of the EXP-FZ3 doesn't allow PE3 modules mounted beside

In case no expansion card (EXP-FZ1, EXP-FZ3) is present, up to 8 PE3 I/O modules can be connected directly to the Master-Link, like it's shown in the picture:

Optical fibre Z-Link


PE3 peripherals are composed of multiple, configurable modules
The first module is always the ILK card with Z-Link optical fibre interface

  • Connected to Z-Link bus with optical fibre
  • Plastic housing
  • DIN Rail fixture EN 50022
  • Maximum distance from previous/next Z-Link peripheral: 30m



PE3 peripherals are competely software configured: no need af any hardware configuration.
The high flexibility of the PE3 I/O system optimizes the cost of the electrical cabinet.

Each ILK module can manage a maximum of 8 PE3 modules mounted beside
The modules can be chosen freely between available ones:

Architecture scheme

D.Electron designs and produces digital drives for:

  • 400Vac brushless motors (axes)
  • 400Vac linear motors (axes)
  • 400Vac torque motors (axes)
  • 400Vac induction motors (spindles)
  • 400Vac field-weakiening synchronous motors (spindles)

Z-Star2 drives system is composed of a power supply module that generates the 600Vdc bus and various power modules connected to the DC bus.

The communication between drives and Master-Link is done through an optical fibre connection: the optical fibre connection departs from the Master-Link, passes through all the servodrives and returns back to the Master-Link creating a loop connection, also called Z-Star2 channel.
