NXEE2 mini-NEXUS SSI Interface

NXEE2 mini-NEXUS SSI Interface
  • Replacement for ANE2E AnyNET SSI Interface
  • Direct interface to most Gray Code or Binary SSI sensors
  • Dual-port networking offers offers DLR for EtherNet/IP & MRP for Profinet
  • Position scaling that simplifies sensor data
  • Latching inputs provide "snapshot" data capture
  • Programming is easy via your PLC. No additional software required!
  • DIN rail mounting for simple, standard installation
  • Description


    AMCI’s NXEE2 mini-NEXUS SSI interface product is the easiest, most flexible way to bring SSI sensor data into any PLC-based control system. These plug and play SSI interfaces are the trusted solution for bringing SSI data into your PLC when a plug-in module solution does not exist, such as with Rockwell Automation's CompactLogix 5380.  AMCI's NXEE2 connects a wide variety of SSI sensors to your PLC using a standard network connection, and it programs using the host controller's (PLC) native software - nothing new to buy, nothing new to learn!

    The two channel NXEE2 product is a direct interface to most Gray Code or Binary SSI sensors, including rotary encoders, linear sensors, barcode readers, and laser distance sensors. Additional NXEE2 features include: position preset, count direction, position scaling, and differential inputs that can be programmed as general purpose inputs, to Apply the Preset Value, or to capture the scaled data value.

    Distributed I/O
    AMCI’s Distributed I/O systems combine hard to find specialty functions with a network interface, simplifying installation and cutting costs. These systems are compatible with any networked PLC/PAC and easily program through the host PLC’s software.  The innovative product design simplifies installation, optimizes network performance, and ensures system integrity.

    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 that supports EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP, or Profinet.

    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.
