ITV - Electro-Pneumatic Regulator
Series ITV is an electro-pneumatic regulator that controls air pressure with an electric signal. This EtherNet/IP version, designed and built in SMC's North American headquarters, now includes a 2nd generation chipset with new features and upgrades. The new design is CE and UL certified, while also meeting the ODVA specification. The IP address can now be set with a DIP switch. An integrated 2-port switch, Quick Connect, and Device Level Ring allow this ITV to operate in typical manufacturing network topologies. If the installation requires more than one regulator, the ITVs can be daisy chained. Power over Ethernet is available for up to 5 units. The new dynamic web page design includes pressure settings and feedback in engineering units. Gain and sensitivity can also be adjusted. Expanded fault diagnostics and alarm enable quicker troubleshooting for reduced downtime. In the event of a lost connection, the regulator holds the set point pressure to maintain the machine's operation.
LEC-G - Electric Actuator Gateway Unit
LEC-G is a Fieldbus-compatible Gateway (GW) unit for electric actuators. Protocols include CC-Link Ver. 2.0, DeviceNet™, PROFIBUS DP, and EtherNet/IP™. Cables and branch connectors are available for connecting up to 12 controllers, depending on the selected protocol.
JXC91 - EtherNet-IP Direct Input Fieldbus and IO-Link - Incremental Encoder
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.
