  • Description

    NXFE2 mini-NEXUS Motion Controller

    The NXFE2 mini-NEXUS Motion Controller is the first servo/stepper controller for the mini-NEXUS product line. The module offers one motion control axis that functions in either an open-loop configuration, or closed loop using the available encoder feedback. The motion axis can be used to drive a stepper or a servo with step/direction input capability. 

    These plug and play motion controllers are the trusted solution for your PLC when a plug-in module solution does not exist, such as with Rockwell Automation's CompactLogix 5380.  AMCI's NXFE2 programs using the host controller's (PLC) native software - nothing new to buy, nothing new to learn!

    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.
