    2742-18 PLC-5 Packaging Automation

    AMCI offers a proven packaging system control solution for the PLC-5 family of modules. The 2742-18 module is an 8 output high speed programmable limit switch (PLS) developed in conjunction with our customers' need to handle the high-speed requirements of glue gun control.

    The 2742-18 module connects to one or two independent resolver-based transducers for position feedback, and generates eight outputs based on a specific transducer's position, programmed setpoints, and speed compensation advances. This packaging system control module also has two inputs that provide for material detection.
