JVL presents a step motor controller with RS485 and CANbus serial interface. 8 IO´s can be configured as inputs, outputs, or analogue input that can be controlled via a nanoPLC and MacTalk graphic programming. The very compact 57x57mm PCB contains everything required to solve a modern control task either as a stand-alone controller or controlled from a PLC or PC via serial commands or IO. MODBUS RTU and CANopen give the possibility for easy and fast connection to a PLC. For PC or IPC an ActiveX/OCX driver is available for simple interfacing to LABview, Excel, VB or other Windows programs. The SMC75 uses the same protocol as the MAC motors and can therefore be connected to the same RS485 bus system.
The PCB can be built into a separate instrument or mounted directly on the back of the motor thus providing a cost-effective solution. Alternatively it can be delivered by JVL in a box with cables or M12 connectors, for mounting in a bottom plate or DIN rails.
