JXC*1, Step Motor Controller, Fieldbus Direct Input Type for LEF

The JXC*1 is a single axis controller for LE’s 24VDC step motors compatible with several fieldbus protocols including Ethernet/IP™ fieldbus. Actuator motors can be operated by calling a line of step data or by direct numerical instruction, each possible over the network.  Futher fieldbus compatible functions include return to origin, alarm outputs and resets, parameter setup, status monitoring, and trial runs.

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.

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.

SMC ITV Electro-pneumatic regulator

Series ITV Electro-Pneumatic Regulators

SMC’s ITV regulators enable stepless control of air pressure proportional to an electrical input signal.  This means remote control without turning a knob!  Each ITV also includes a built in pressure sensor and output signal, offering remote confirmation of operation.

For flexibility in your facility, ITV models offer four low to high flow rates and three pressure ranges.  Two additional models regulate vacuum pressure as well.

Today’s high quality manufacturing processes demand precise electronic control and feedback.  Output pressure requirements may change frequently.  Further, your entire operation may be fieldbus networked.  SMC’s ITV electro-pneumatic regulators integrate competently with your state of the art facility.

AV Soft Start

SMC AV Soft Start Valves

A supply valve that gradually increases supply pressure during start up and quickly exhausts system air when the supply air is shut off.  The AV soft start valves allow the pneumatic pressure supply to be easily tied into equipment electrical controls.

The valve conveniently mates with SMC’s F.R.L. components to create a single point of machine air control and conditioning.

With increasing emphasis being placed on safety in the workplace, the need for safe start-up of machinery has prompted SMC to develop soft start-up valves. These valves reduce and then gradually increase the downstream pressure that is supplied to actuators from a safe low initial value, to the higher values that the machines demand; thereby protecting personnel and equipment from the sudden shock loads that can damage components or injure people.

SMC EX600 I/O System

EX600 I/O System – Network Solution

Designed for total application flexibility, the EX600 I/O system offers many advanced features. A full suite of diagnostics and programmable parameters allow the EX600 to meet the most stringent requirements.  The SI Unit is the key building block of the system and various I/O blocks and valve manifolds can be connected to it. The EX600 can be configured as a centralized or a decentralized I/O system, or a combination of both.

Mechanically the system features sturdy metal M12 connectors (SPEEDCON compatible) as well as a patented hinged clamp design. This assures that all the modules are held together securely, while still allowing adding or removing individual modules without the inherent limitations of a more traditional tie rod design.

Integrated manifold solenoid valve types include: Series SY, Series SV, Series S0700 and Series VQC.

Series IZ S40/41/42 Bar Ionizer

The IZS4 is SMC’s 3rd generation bar ionizers, including three series models.  Bar ionizers apply 6000 to 7000V to each electrode needle.  The corona discharge effect generates a stream of ionized air particles which are purged by an air supply and directed toward the workpiece or zone.  Unbalanced charges in the target area combine with the ion stream to neutralize the unsafe or hazardous charge.  Protect equipment and personnel, improve process quality, and reduce or eliminate product defects by removing static electricity.

Series MXQ-Z Re-invents the Standard that SMC Started

The slide table was a breakthrough product when it was first introduced in 1993, and it is still SMC’s best selling slide series.  The new MXQ-Z re-invents the standard that SMC started.

The new design includes a light weight table that allows for improvements in allowable kinetic energy, product weight and reduction in height over the previous design.  Based on your application needs, there are now 4 basic designs to choose from.

  • Basic Double Ported Type (This is to fit your basic needs)
  • Low Thrust, High Rigidity Type (For applications that are not moving heavy loads but require high rigidity & precision)
  • Single Side Ported (Ports are on the same side instead of opposite sides)

  • Height Interchangeable Type (If you are using the old MXQ design and require the actuator height to be the same as old)

The MXQ-Z consists of an integrated guide rails and table.  The use of recirculating linear guide bearing give the MXQ high rigidity and precision.  The MXQ-Z is available with an optional stroke adjuster that is positioned in the center so play at the end of stroke is improved.
