    3601 MicroLogix Motion (Stepper or Servo) Controller

    Advanced Micro Controls, Inc. is proud to offer the 3601 Single Axis Stepper Motor Controller for Allen Bradley's MicroLogix system. This single-axis stepper motor controller features encoder feedback & discrete inputs that can control the velocity and position of a stepper motor.

    AMCI's custom add on profiles make it easy to "add" the 3601 stepper motor controller module to your Allen-Bradley MicroLogix PLC. No more Generic Module types and you can create custom data tags, simplifying data reference.

    Plus, AMCI's 3601 PLC module can also control a servo system that has been configured to use step and direction inputs. The same design that positions the 3601 plc module as a winning choice for stepper applications, also meets the demands of a servo controller for the MicroLogix PLC.

    The 3601 Single Axis Stepper Motor Controller expands our family of PLC Modules and grows an already impressive line of AMCI stepper motion products. For more reliable performance, check out our available line of stepper drives & motors.
