DESCRIPTION

AMCI Model: NEXUS #NX1F2_
AMCI Model: NEXUS #NX1F4_

The AMCI Multi-Axis Stepper Motor Controller is a member of our distributed specialty I/O NEXUS product family.

This networked stepper motor controller is available as either a two or four axis controller and can accurately control velocity and position of up to four stepper motors simultaneously. Incremental encoder and discrete inputs can be used to provide additional feedback information for your Stepper Motor application. Its network interface makes it simple to connect this multi-axis stepper controller to a wide variety of PLC's and manufacturing networks.

Designed to operate with AMCI's complete line of stepper drives, the Nexus Multi-Axis Stepper Motor Controller can also operate with drives from many other manufacturers.
