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.
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.

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.
NEXUS is compatible with any networked PLC
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.
