24VDC Controllers, Single Axis
LE's most common motors operate with 24VDC. Step motors offer higher maximum workloads at lower speeds. Servo motors offer lower maximum workloads but with consistent maximum speed. Both motor types have encoder feedback either incremental or battery-less absolute. Controllers can be chosen based on communication method as well as by encoder compatibility.
Fieldbus and IO-Link Controllers
The JXC series of single axis controllers operate LE's 24VDC step motors. JXC offers compatibility with multiple fieldbus protocols, including Ethernet/IP™. IO-Link is also available for some models. Incremental and absolute encoders are supported. Actuator motors can be operated by calling a line of step data or by direct numerical instruction, each possible over the network. Further fieldbus compatible functions include return to origin, alarm outputs and resets, parameter setup, status monitoring, and trial runs.
PLC Parallel I/O - Programmable
This collection includes controllers compatible with either 24VDC step or servo motors. Step motors may have either an incremental or an absolute encoder. Servo motors have incremental encoders. Each controller can be programmed with laptop / PC software or a teaching pendant. Enter up to 64 lines of motion control step data using Easy or Normal data entry mode. Additional parameter settings are available. During operation, the machine's PLC can call any line of step data via parallel I/O to perform a move.
PLC Parallel I/O - Programless for Incremental Encoders
LECP1 AND LECP2 are programless controllers for LE's 24VDC step motors. 14 positions with speed and acceleration / deceleration values can be set directly from the control panel. No setting software or teaching pendant is required. Separate control and motor power enable the motor to be turned off without losing the encoder position. Alarm detection is also available. These controllers are only available for motors with incremental encoders.
LECPA PLC Pulse Input for Incremental Encoders
The LECPA is a driver for LE’s 24VDC step motors. This driver controls motion by interpreting a pulse input signal from the PLC instead of calls to a step data table. Separate control and motor power enable the motor to be turned off without losing the encoder position. Additional features include alarm detection and in-range AREA output signals.
