    NX2E4_ NEXUS Networked I/O SSI Interface

    Advanced Micro Controls, Inc. recognized the increased use of SSI sensors in industrial applications and developed a network-ready interface. The NX2E4_ is capable of interfacing your network directly to four SSI sensors and can be used in applications ranging from rotary to linear to laser position sensing.

    The resolution of the NX2E4X SSI interface is only limited by the resolution of the corresponding SSI sensor and provides the user with scaled data, actual SSI data, and velocity data. Additional features include: position preset, and programmable count direction.

    This module also incorporates diagnostics that constantly monitor system integrity and report any errors to the PLC.

    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.
