AMCI has developed one- and two-channel SSI expansion modules for the Allen-Bradley 1762 Micrologix I/O.

The 7160 series SSI modules enable customers to expand the flexibility of Micrologix 1100, 1200 and 1400 controllers by adding the ability to monitor rotary and linear applications.

Using Rockwell Automation Enabled technologies ensures that the 7160 series modules are 100 per cent compatible with the Allen-Bradley 1762 Micrologix I/O.

AMCI said setup and installation are easy; RSlogix 500 programming software is all that is needed to get started.

The controller and 7160 SSI modules can be mounted either on a panel or on a DIN rail, with the modules installed to the right of the controller.

The AMCI 7161 and 7162 SSI modules provide up to 32-bit resolution, with selectable data format of either binary or grey code.

The resolution is limited only by the resolution of the SSI sensor, and provides the user with scaled data, actual SSI data, or velocity data.

Features include position preset, count direction, position scaling, and a latch input (7161 only).

Fault diagnostics are also incorporated into the modules to constantly monitor system integrity and report any errors to the PLC.

Both the 7161 and 7162 modules are compatible with SSI transducers from manufacturers such as AMCI, Balluff, MTS, SICK and Stegmann.

The 7160 series SSI modules is capable of working in a range of applications and is compatible with the following SSI distance-measurement sensor types: encoders; linear scales; barcode readers; non-contact laser systems; and more.

Founded in 1985, Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI) is a leading U.S. based manufacturer with a global presence. Our Industrial Controls improve the performance and profitability of today’s factories and automation systems. AMCI specializes in the design, manufacturing, and sales of eight different product families.

* PLC Modules: complete line of solutions licensed by Allen Bradley, GE Fanuc, and Schneider

* Resolver Transducers: operate reliably under severe conditions such as continuous mechanical shock and vibration,    extreme temperature variations, and exposure to solvent and coolant contaminants

* Encoders (DuraCoder): heavy-duty, industrial grade rotary encoders for many different applications

* Stepper Motor Control: stepper motor controllers, stepper motor drives, stepper motors, and integrated stepper motor/drives – years of trouble free operation

* Network Devices: NEXUS family of products – flexibility and high-speed communications

* Stand Alone Solutions: Programmable Limit Switch (PLS) technology. For almost two decades AMCI has been delivering stand alone solutions that offer value and field tested reliability to customers

* Packaging Systems Controls: technology for numerous applications – PLC Modules, Network Controllers, and Stand Alone Controls

* Stamping Press Technologies: die protection, brake monitoring, and top-stop control are what separate our stamping press controls product family from the rest – PLC Modules, Network Controllers, and Stand Alone Controls
