ACS low profile machine controller


ACS Motion Control, an international manufacturer of advanced multi-axis motion controllers and integrated control modules, has developed a low-cost, small-footprint approach to complete machine control. Designated the SPiiPlus LF-CM, the machine controller provides multiaxis integrated control and up to 64 additional nodes (axes or I/O) via CANOpen network extension in a fraction of the footprint size of other products on the market.

The controller includes a full PLC, programmable in any of the standard 5 IEC61131-3 languages with an update rate of 1ms. The SPiiPlus LF-CM is suited for cost-sensitive multi-axis systems where space is at a premium including biomedical, wafer handling and inspection laboratories, factory automation machinery and servo control applications.
