Controllers & Drivers
Controllers and drivers needed for our electric actuator family. You will find step motor, servo motor and card motor controllers as well as 24VDC Fieldbus gateway units and AC servo drivers.
LE's most common motors operate with 24VDC. Step motors offer higher maximum workloads at lower speeds. Servo motors offer lower maximum workloads but with consistent maximum speed. Both motor types have encoder feedback either incremental or battery-less absolute. Controllers can be chosen based on communication method as well as by encoder compatibility.
Save space and reduce wiring by using a 3- or 4-axis controller for LE actuators with 24VDC step motors. The JXC92 can control up to 3 axes and is compatible with EtherNet/IP™ fieldbus. Complex movements such as 2-axis arc or circular interpolation, and 3-axis linear interpolation are possible.
LE’s AC servo motors offer higher speeds and accelerations than DC types, as well as higher torques for larger actuators. Pulse input drivers are available for both incremental and absolute encoders, for standalone operation by a PLC. Drivers for fieldbus networks are also available, including compatibility with EtherNet/IP™, PROFINET, EtherCAT®, CC-Link, Mitsubishi's SSCNET and Yaskawa's MECHATROLINK protocols.
The LATC4 controller exclusively operates the LAT3 magnetic drive card motor. Laptop software is easy to follow, including screens for step data and I/O setup, as well as monitoring and testing operations. The easier of two step data entry modes requires only target position, positioning time, and load weight.
