    NX2C4_ NEXUS Networked I/O LDT Interface

    AMCI offers a variety of network interfaces and controllers for industrial control applications.

    The NEXUS four channel LDT interface provides absolute position and velocity data directly through a network connection. The four LDT channels can be configured to accept sensors that output either start/stop or PWM signals. By selecting a special software option, the NX2C4_-08 can interface to multiple magnet sensors (up to 16 magnets per sensor), a necessity in metal slitting, paper, and lumber applications.

    The maximum position resolution of the NX2C4_ LDT interface is 0.001". The position data is updated every 2ms and the velocity update is selectable for either 24ms or 160ms. The NX2C4_ provides complete diagnostic information for both the sensor and controller including transducer and module errors.

    PLC-Based Specialty I/O Solutions

    Functionally, the AMCI NEXUS controllers and interfaces deliver the same level of PLC integration as their plug-in module counterparts, but with much more flexibility from a systems standpoint. Rather than limit these versatile products to one PLC brand or specific backplane, all units are Din-rail mountable and equipped with a network interface that allows connection to various controllers. AMCI NEXUS specialty I/O integrate with ANY network enabled PLC using Ethernet I/P, Modbus TCP/IP, Profinet, Profibus, ControlNet, or DeviceNet.

    The flexibility of a NEXUS controls solution saves time and money, letting customers choose whatever PLC best meets their needs, or change PLCs without having to re-specify and repurchase plug-in modules. And because the NEXUS integrates via network communication, PLC platforms no longer restrict compatibility and integration.

    Compatible Networks


    NEXUS is compatible with any networked PLC






    The Best PLC Integration Available

    AMCI products are uniquely designed to provide the best PLC integration available. Unlike other products that require a separate software package for configuration or operation, AMCI's PLC-based products are programmed using your PLC's software - nothing new to buy or learn!

    Our expertise with the leading PLC manufacturers (e.g. Allen-Bradley Schneider, GE, etc) is unmatched when it comes to high performance Specialty I/O, Position Sensing, and Motion Control technology.
