Multi-axes step motor controller
20 December 2018
SMC has extended its multi-axes control step motor controller range, with the launch of the JXC92. This new unit can control up to three electric actuators simultaneously, creating a range of savings and simplifying the process in terms of equipment, wiring, space and programming.
SMC has stepped up interpolation performance and speed tuning control credentials for its range of LE electric actuators with the launch of its JXC92.
This multi-axes control delivers programming and equipment savings as it can manage three actuators from the one device, instead of having to use a trio of controllers to perform the same task. It complements SMC’s JXC*3, which controls four axes at once, and shares its EtherNet/IP compatibility, making them both valid solutions for industrial environments.
A spokesperson from SMC, said: “Our customers are looking for solutions that make processes simpler and save time, space and overall costs. The JXC92 is a direct response to this need and is an excellent addition to our multi-axes control range.”
Not only is the JXC92 flexible, but it also saves space as less wiring is required and the controller is smaller in size when compared to using three individual units. Time is also saved when it comes to programming the motor controller and it’s also quicker for operators to connect and disconnect the PC cables, as they can set up to three axes at any one time, with just one step connection.
