EXW1/EX600-W Series

Less is definitely more

Is the number of cables a hassle for you? Do you experience many setbacks due to cable breakages and disconnections in your facilities?

Or maybe just because you fancy the simplicity of wireless products; EXW1/EX600-W is your solution. A decentralised wireless fieldbus system, which allows the connection of several remote units to a base unit without having to use communication cables.

Although suitable for all industrial sectors, most of the applications to date have been for robots and robot peripherals. The power packs found in systems such as robots and turntables subject the communication cables they carry to extreme twists and turns, eventually causing them to fatigue and break. With SMC’s unique wireless system, we can basically eliminate any cables that carry electrical control signals.

The benefits of SMC's Wireless System for you:

  • Less cabling. Less installation time. Less downtime. Less hassle. Less – Compact and modular wireless systems
  • Achieve totally secure, reliable and noise-resistant communication – Frequency hopping and data encryption in the 2.4 GHz ISM band
  • Put it to work anywhere – Suitable for any application, being ideal for tool changes in robot arms or rotary/indexing tables
  • Introduce flexibility in your machines – Simple layout modification and quick connection & start-up.
