NEXUS 2-Axis or 4-Axis Stepper Motor Controller For Industrial Networks


FEATURES:

  • Network ready 2 or 4 axis controller
  • Outputs Step & Direction or CW/CCW pulses to a stepper driver
  • Encoder feedback for move verification
  • Enhanced motion profiles
  • Industry leading warranty and support
  • 100% compatible with entire line of AMCI stepper drives and motors

DESCRIPTION

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

The AMCI NEXUS Multi-axis Stepper Motor Controller is the first unit in our new NEXUS motor control product family. Two and four axis versions are available.

This networked stepper controller can run up to four stepper profiles simultaneously. Each channel has incremental encoder feedback and discrete inputs that can be used to provide additional control options for your Stepper Motor application.

Its network interface makes it simple to connect this 2-axis or 4-axis stepper motor 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.
