AMCI by IDEC motion control products

Wednesday, 24 May, 2017 | Supplied by: IDEC Australia Pty Ltd

IDEC Corporation has introduced a line of motion control stepper products in conjunction with Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI). This AMCI by IDEC range includes controllers, stepper motors, an integrated controller/drive, an integrated drive/stepper motor and an integrated controller/drive/stepper motor. When combined with an IDEC FC6A PLC and its embedded motion control macro instructions, these devices allow users to quickly and simply implement single- and multi-axis motion control in a wide range of industries and applications.

Many industrial applications require motion control, but users are often frustrated by the complexity and high cost of implementation, particularly with servo systems. IDEC and AMCI have partnered to address this issue by offering a simple yet highly capable stepper motion control system. Macro instructions embedded in the PLC WindLDR programming software can be configured with drag-and-drop commands to perform control of up to 12 axes.

The integrated controller/drive and drive/stepper motor units simplify installation by combining multiple components into a single unit. The integrated controller/drive/stepper motor units offers space saving and system simplification.

Because all the components and the software modules are provided by IDEC and AMCI in close partnership, users are assured of correct operation right out of the box, with no need to perform integration among the components.

Compared with servo motion systems, steppers are a simpler technology and require no tuning or adjustment. They also have high torque at low speeds, do not require position feedback and have low maintenance requirements.
