■5 types of communication protocols
■Both air and electric systems can be established under the same protocol.
■Two types of operation command
Step no. defined operation: Operate using the preset step data in the controller.
Numerical data defined operation: The actuator operates using values such as position and speed from the PLC.
■Numerical monitoring available
Numerical information, such as the current speed, current position, and alarm codes, can be monitored on the PLC.
■Transition wiring of communication cables
Two communication ports are provided.
* For the DeviceNet™ type, transition wiring is possible using a branch connector.
* 1 to 1 in the case of IO-Link
■IO-Link communication can be performed.
The data storage function eliminates the need for troublesome resetting of step data and parameters when changing over the controller.
●Step data and parameters can be set from the master side.
Step data and parameters can be set or changed by means of IO-Link communication.
●Data storage function
When the controller is changed, the parameters and step data for the actuator are automatically set.*1
●4-wire unshielded cables can be used.
*1 The “basic parameter” and the “return to origin parameter” are automatically set as the actuator parameters, and the 3 items of data consisting of No. 0 to 2 are automatically set as the step data.
