1. Compact Design
A successfully designed 8-axis compact controller with a 123mm width x 155mm height unit. A 60% reduction in width from the predecessor controller which contributes to space savings within the controller cabinet.
2. Supports major field networks
Allows direct connection with the major field networks including DeviceNet, CC-Link, PROFIBUS-DP, MECHATROLINK, CompoNet, EtherCAT, and EtherNet/IP.
Network Specification Features
3. Supports both the pulse motor and the servo motor
A single MSEP controller can operate both the pulse motor and the servo motor type actuators, reducing set-up efforts significantly such as wiring even when different types of actuators have to be used at the same time.
4. Simple absolute option
An absolute position encoder is available, which saves the position data by battery, providing prompt operation without returning to the home position after power off. Even in an emergency shut-off or momentary power-loss, it allows continuous operation from its last position.
5. Checking when to maintain based on the total number of movements and total distance traveled
The total number of actuator movements and the total distance travelled are calculated and recorded in the controller, and when the predetermined count or distance is exceeded, a signal is output to an external device. You can use this function to check when the actuator needs re-greasing or periodic inspection.
6. Recording the alarm occurrence time with the calendar function
An additional clock function facilitates the alarm analysis from the convenience of the display screen that shows the time of the alarm occurrence. (The retention period of the date and time data is 10 days)
