SMC launches motor controller with extended communications
August 2017, PLCs, DCSs & Controllers


Responding to the demand for broadening the communication capacities of one of the corporation’s most popular controllers, SMC´s direct input step motor controller is now available in three additional communication protocols, namely – DeviceNet, EtherCAT and Profinet. These now join EtherNet/IP fieldbus protocol, which is already available to the market.

The recently launched JXC series from SMC, with its three additional communication protocols, is designed to control the LE range of electric actuators, providing real-time, high speed communication as well as added security, thanks to a dual port In/Out.

Ernst Smith, product manager at SMC Pneumatics, explains that the direct input type step motor controller is ideal for general machine builders who rely on accurate speed, position or force, but at the same time look to improve flexibility and strengthen security. “The DLR option gives added security and peace of mind as communication continues even when there is a disconnected element. In addition, real time feedback is achieved through numerical data input, in addition to half/full duplex high speed communication.”

The JXC is yet another example of a recent innovation from SMC, with several new product launches taking place from the end of 2016 to date.

Smith goes on to say: “Now, using four of the most common networks within process and automation applications, the JXC series opens the door to simpler and tighter control for our customers”.

Due to its innovative design, the series delivers savings in terms of space, cabling and maintenance requirements.
