5 SeriesMany industrial applications require motion control, but users are often frustrated by the complexity and high cost of implementation. IDEC Corporation and AMCI, an established supplier of motion control systems, have partnered to address this issue by offering a simple yet highly capable stepper motion control system. This AMCI by IDEC product line includes controllers, stepper motors, a combo controller+drive, a combo drive+stepper motor, and the 3-in-1 controller+drive+stepper motor. When combined with an IDEC FC6A PLC and its embedded motion control software modules, these products allow users to quickly and simply implement single- and multi-axis motion control in a wide range of industries and applications.
Moreover, AMCI-IDEC IANF2 expansion modules allow you to easily interface up to 12 motion axes using a single network connection, which reduces physical wiring and streamlines network traffic.
No other product rivals the flexibility, performance, and value of AMCI-IDEC IANF2 Motion Controllers.
Traditional motion controllers are difficult to integrate with PLC-based automation systems. There are so many manufacturers, so many different choices, and each solution contains proprietary features that complicate installation, programming and compatibility. You’re also faced with mechanical challenges because these motion controllers often use non-standard mounting hardware. And their configuration involves learning another software program and/or language foreign to your controls environment. IANG1 eliminates these headaches with a revolutionary design that leverages modern networks to deliver unmatched value to automation users.
The IANG1 integrates a stepper controller and driver into one, compact package that communicates with the MicroSmart FC6A over Modbus TCP network. All programming is performed through the user-defined macro instructions in WindLDR software.
Powerful 3.4 amp stepper drive technology has been designed into this package to achieve a space-saving design that delivers outstanding performance.
Simplified installation begins with configuration software that allows you to configure the current level, the idle current amount and the steps per revolution over an RS232 serial link from your PC.
While the ISMD23 size 23 Integrated Stepper Motor + Drive is configured over a serial link, motion is controlled by a separate device, such as a stepper indexer, that outputs step and direction signals.
