SMC’s EX600-W Wireless Technology Designed Strong Against Interference

SMC ex600w manifold

The new EX600-W is a wireless system engineered for remote actuator control. The SMC wireless communication system provides stable and reliable network that meets the needs of the Factory Automation environment. The advantages of wireless industrial communications are reduced installation and wiring costs. Remote communication allows installation in places where wiring is difficult, including moving areas.

EX600 DiagramThe EX600-W is so robust it is even usable in welding environments. A stable wireless environment is established using Frequency Hopping, an original protocol which is not affected by interference. This communication technology rapidly changes frequency (hopping) to prevent interference from other wireless equipment.

SMC LEYG Motorless Guide Rod Electric Actuators

Permits mounting of your AC servo motor

SMC LEYG motorless

The LEYG actuator is a rod type ball screw actuator paired with a bolt-on bearing block with double guide rods to resist rotational and lateral loads. The LEYG motorless version permits the mounting of an AC servo motor other than the standard chosen by SMC. Shaft coupling and mounting patterns are compatible with 8 servo motor series from 5 manufacturers. Manufacturers include Mitsubishi, Yaskawa, Sanyo Denki, Omron, and Panasonic.
