    3102 & 3102i MicroLogix Motion Controllers

    AMCI 3100 series two-axis motion control modules unleash the power of your 1762 MicroLogix I/O. Equipping your MicroLogix 1100, 1200, of 1400 PLC with powerful multi-axis motion control is now possible and easy!

    AMCI's 3100 series motion modules incorporate specialized commands, including linear & circular interpolation, for all of your motion needs. Encoder feedback for move verification is also available. Plus, these powerful motion controllers are easily programmed, configured, and commissioned using Allen-Bradley's popular RSLogix 500 software. Programmed directly from the output registers, these modules offer a wide range of motion commands, including absolute, relative, registration, and blend moves that can be configured to meet the most exacting requirements. Plus, AMCI's 3100 series motion modules can be used with servos only, steppers only, or a mix of servos and steppers...you choose!

    AMCI's 3100 series two-axis motion control modules are available in two versions: 3102 (X-Y motion control) & 3102i (X-Y motion control + interpolation).

    AMCI 3102:
    AMCI's 3102 PLC module is a 2-axis motion controller for Rockwell Automation's 1762 MicroLogix I/O, including the 1100, 1200, and 1400. The 3102 module provides encoder feedback and can control servo drives with step/direction input or stepper drives depending on your requirements. And the 3102 module offers a wide range of motion commands including jog, home, and point-to-point control. Popular applications for this motion controller include assembly lines, conveyor control, in-process gauging, valve control, and much more.

    AMCI 3102i:
    AMCI's 3102i was developed for applications requiring more sophisticated motion control, specifically linear and circular interpolation. This high performance module is functionally equivalent to AMCI's 3102 controller, however, its ability to reach specific target positions and output contoured motion profiles simplifies manufacturing complexities. Popular applications for AMCI's 3102i interpolated motion controller include high speed assembly, water jet cutting, storage and sorting, laser trimming, needle inspection systems, and much more.
