LC-Ladder Programming Software for MSEP-LC
Catalog #: CJ0214-1A-UST-1-1114 (2 MB)
Pages: 8

Controlling actuators with ROBO Cylinder position controllers used to require hard work to write ladder programs. PLC memory allocation needed to be considered, signals sent to the position controller, position numbers defined, and movements triggered with the correct timing. However, the MSEP-LC’s DFC command makes programming simple, providing static allocation of internal memory and timing-free command sending.

LC-Ladder Software is free to download. (Requires login)

MSEL-PC/PG Program Controller for ROBO Cylinder
Catalog #: CJ0222-1A-UST-1-1214 (2 MB)
Pages: 12

Introducing the ROBO Cylinder 4-axis program controller
MSEL with High-output Driver (PowerCON)

Actuators with a pulse motor in the past were able to control only up to two axes with one program controller. By using MSEL, four axes will be available for control. It is also available for interpolation operation.

By applying the PowerCON, it is now possible to perform interpolation operation with ROBO Cylinders RCP5 and RCP4, which are applicable for high-output driver, but were not feasible with the PSEL program controller in the past.

SCON-CAL Position Controller for Single-axis Robots / Cartesian Robots / ROBO Cylinder RCS2/RCS3
Catalog #: CJ0221-1A-UST-1-1214 (2.4 MB)
Pages: 16

The SCON-CAL controller saves you installation space. It measures only 49 mm wide, 158 mm high and 116 mm deep, making it 34% smaller in volume than the SCON-CA. Multiple SCON-CALs can be installed without leaving any space in between, which helps reduce the installation space for your control panel.

When the absolute battery voltage or fan speed drops, the warning LED turns on. With this function, you are informed visually when to replace a maintenance part. The controller can also be set up to output a warning signal.

Field networks CC-Link, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS-DP, MECHATROLINK-I/II, CompoNet, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, and PROFINET IO are supported.

MSEP-C / LC Controller *Updated

Catalog #: CJ0216-2A-UST-1-0215 (4.8 MB)
Pages: 28

Operating the actuator and controlling the ON/OFF of I/O (input/output) signals using a ladder logic program is now possible. If your equipment is small enough, the MSEP-LC is all you need to control it. If your equipment is larger in size, you can still use the MSEP-LC to perform distributed control for each process to reduce the load of the main PLC. The MSEP-LC also makes your program simpler and troubleshooting easier.

Direct Drive Motor DD < 2nd edition >

Catalog #: CJ0199-2A-UST-1-0814 (1.9 MB)
Pages: 12

The Direct Drive Motor is a rotary actuator that directly drives a rotary table with a motor without using any speed reducing mechanism such as a belt or reduction gears. Eliminating the speed reducing mechanism explains why high speed and excellent response can be attained with such a compact frame.

ROBO Cylinder® with Battery-less Absolute Encoder as Standard Equipment

the RCP5 series actuator with battery-less absolute encoder, realizing the convenience of an absolute encoder along with the cost and simplicity of an incremental encoder

The battery-less absolute encoder is an innovative encoder requiring no hassle or cost of battery replacement or adjustment associated therewith (patent pending), as rotational position data is recognized by a combination of gears to make the battery, which has been a required component of any traditional absolute encoder, no longer necessary. This encoder is ideal for the automobile industry and other production facilities where many absolute type actuators are used.
