Programmable Controller CTN
IKOProgrammable Controller is a controller for positioning control with high functionality and operability.
You can control various machines and devices with servomotors and stepper motors such as IKO precision positioning tables by using IKO Programmable Controller in combination with various drivers for motor drive.
- 1. High speed and high resolution controls
- Both high speed and high resolution controls superior to conventional products are realized with high speed pulse output up to 8 MHz.
- 2. Super high function
- Enables program input up to 10,000 steps.
- 3. USB interface provided as standard
- With dedicated commands, data editing, controller operations and direct execution from PC are allowed.
Also, data can be stored and transferred via USB memory available on the market.
- 4. System configurations for various controls
- As absolute encoders of YASKAWA ELECTRIC CORPORATION, Panasonic Corporation, and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation are supported, return to origin operation at the startup is not required.
- 5. Synchronization control function
- Allows simultaneous execution and shutdown of any two axes(gantry mechanism control is possible).
- 6. Multi-tasking function
- Allows simultaneous execution of up to five programs.
- 7. Streamlined wiring
- Thanks to RS422 interface as standard equipment, LAN cable available on the market can be used for streamlined wiring by touch panel or sequencer data communication.
