IDEC IANG1 Integrated Stepper Controller + Drive

IDEC’s IANG1 Integrated Stepper Controller + Drive product is a ground-breaking approach to PLC-based motion control systems.Traditional motion controllers are difficult to integrate with PLC-based automation systems. There are so many manufacturers, so many different choices, and each solution contains proprietary features that complicate installation, programming and compatibility. You’re also faced with mechanical challenges because these motion controllers often use non-standard mounting hardware. And their configuration involves learning another software program and/or language foreign to your controls environment. IANG1 eliminates these headaches with a revolutionary design that leverages modern networks to deliver unmatched value to automation users.The IANG1 integrates a …

IDEC IANF2 Motion Controllers

IANF2 modules from IDEC offer two independent motion control axes that function in an open-loop configuration, or closed loop using the available encoder feedback. Each axis can be used to drive a stepper or a servo with step/direction input capability. The IANF2 can synchronize its two axes, giving you the ability to control linear and circular motions in an XY plane. Moreover, AMCI-IDEC IANF2 expansion modules allow you to easily interface up to 12 motion axes using a single network connection, which reduces physical wiring and streamlines network traffic. No other product rivals the flexibility, performance, and value of AMCI-IDEC …
