for Machining “On The Fly” like Flying Shears, Saws, Punchers, Cutters etc.

[PDF Manual]

  • New stand-alone precision controller for the specific motion profile of Flying Shears and Saws

  • Also most suitable for smaller machines with limited budget, due to a very competitive price

  • Self-optimizing polynomial speed profile to ensure extremely smooth motion and gentle tool treatment for best service life

  • High accuracy and repeatability, even with high line speeds, due to a 300 kHz frequency range of the incremental encoder inputs

  • Continuous closed-loop position control with only 250 µsec of cycle time, therefore outstanding dynamic features and high cutting precision even during changes of the line speed

  • Suitable for operation with all electric or hydraulic 4-quadrant drives providing a +/- 10V  speed input

  • Instantly ready for use, with easy setup and commissioning via Windows PC software (freeware), resulting in successful machine operation within shortest time

  • The controller can be operated by means of control keys or thumbwheel switches on the front side, as well as by remote operation terminals or by serial link

  • Direct PROFIBUS access is possible with use of gateway model PB251

    (see Accessories)

  • Compact DIN housing for front panel mounting

  • Optional assembly to DIN rails with use of the mounting supports SM300/ SM600(see Accessories)
