Controllers ensure a perfect response from item servomotors. Two power stages for three-phase operation are available to suit different loads. item MotionDesigner®, the online selection and configuration tool, helps tailor the Controller and Motor to the relevant transport task and ensure appropriate dimensioning.
All item Controllers C3 incorporate a programmable servo controller that enables the Controller to store motion profiles and trigger them independently. Thanks to freely programmable I/O ports, signals from start/stop switches, sensors, etc. can be directly processed and integrated into the program sequence. Setup is completed using the intuitive software program item MotionSoft®.
Thanks to optional interface modules, the Controllers can be expanded for all standard fieldbus systems. CAN-Open, USB, Ethernet and RS232 interfaces are standard. PROFINET, EtherCAT and PROFIBUS can be easily retrofitted. Safety Module STO (Safe Torque Off) makes the system even safer by putting the motor into a no-torque state when at rest.
To ensure precise motion over long-term use, the Controllers feature a universal, integrated encoder interface for resolvers.
The item Controllers have CE and UL certifications.
Note: item recommends that Shield Terminal Block D14 (0.0.668.19) is used to ensure problem-free signal processing.
