ITV - Electro-Pneumatic Regulator
Series ITV electro-pneumatic and electronic vacuum regulators control air/vacuum pressure steplessly in proportion to an electric signal. They are light weight in design with a bright and easy to read LED display. The monitor output is available either as analog output or switch output. The ITV series is IP65 equivalent.
LEC-G - Electric Actuator Gateway Unit
JXC91 - EtherNet/IP™Direct Input Step Motor Controller
The JXC*1 is a single axis controller for LE's 24VDC step motors compatible with several fieldbus protocols including Ethernet/IP™ fieldbus. Actuator motors can be operated by calling a line of step data or by direct numerical instruction, each possible over the network. Futher fieldbus compatible functions include return to origin, alarm outputs and resets, parameter setup, status monitoring, and trial runs.
JXC92 - EtherNet/IP™ 3-Axis Step Motor Controller
The JXC92 is a 3-axis controller for LE's 24VDC step motors, compatible with EtherNet/IP™ fieldbus. Three 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, and 3-axis linear interpolation, along with speed tuning control. A call to one line of step data can include force and movement instructions for up to three axes. Typical applications include pick and place sorting or filling, lifting, and non-linear path tracing for graphics production or dispensing.
JXC93 - EtherNet/IP™ 4-Axis Step Motor Controller
The JXC73, 83 and 93 are 4-axis controllers for LE's 24VDC step motor driven electric actuators. Four electric actuators can be controlled within one package, simplifying wiring and economizing space. Further, the coordination of complex movements is possible. These movements include 2-axis arc or circular interpolation, 3-axis linear interpolation, and 4-axis speed matching. The speed matching feature corrects for speed differences between axes that could result from external forces or other factors. Synchronous positioning with feedback between axes is not available. JXC73 and JXC83 are NPN and PNP parallel I/O types using two 40-pin cables. JXC93 uses the EtherNet/IP™ fieldbus protocol to communicate with the PLC. One line of step data can be called for up to 4 axes of force and movement instructions. Typical applications include pick and place gantry movement, multi-axis lifting while maintaining orientation and stability, and non-linear path tracing for graphics production or dispensing.
MPC - Multi-position Cylinder
The MPC is SMC's low cost Ethernet positioning cylinder. The MPC series offers a cylinder, solenoid valve, linear positioner, and controller in one package. With its integral position control, the MPC needs only power and Ethernet input signal. The target position is kept by opening and closing solenoid valves controlling pressure on the cylinder. The MPC has an output signal to give position feedback to a customer's controller. Standard ball bushings protect against side load..
