  SMC takes control with EtherNet/IPô direct input step motor controller

Vitoria, Spain (May 7, 2015)

SMC, the worldwide leading expert in pneumatics, has responded to market demand for controlling its popular range of LE electric actuators by introducing a state-of-the-art single EtherNet/IP™ compatible controller.

The JXC91 Direct Input Type Step Motor Controller is ideal for General Industrial Machiners who rely on accurate positioning at high speed and force control.

The JXC91 features a dual port IN / OUT connection with Linear and Device Level Ring (DLR) topologies. The DLR option gives added security and peace of mind as communication continues even when there is a disconnected element. Real time is achieved through numerical data input, in addition to half/full duplex high speed communication of 10/100 Mbps.

SMC said: “Using the most common form of protocol within process and automation applications, the JXC91 opens the door to simpler and closer control. Responding to customer needs, the JXC91 is the latest in a line of product innovations from SMC that offer greater flexibility together with a range of savings and stronger security.”

Due to its clever design, the JXC91 delivers a wealth of additional set up, space, cable and maintenance savings for customers.
