SMC Pneumatics has added an Ethernet/IP version to their JXC series of 24VDC step motor controllers. Four electric actuators can be controlled within one package, simplifying wiring and economizing space. Further, the coordination of complex movements has been added. These movements include 2-axis arc or circular interpolation, 3-axis linear interpolation, and 4-axis synchronous positioning.
- Linear/circular interpolation
- Positioning/pushing operation
- Step data input (max. 2048 points)
- Space saving, reduced wiring
- 4-axis synchronous control
- Absolute/relative position coordinates instructions
- EtherNet/IP or Parallel I/O
