AMCI’s 3100 series two-axis motion-control modules plug directly into a Micrologix PLC and are suited for applications such as assembly lines, conveyor control, in-process gauging and valve control.

Available in two versions – 3102 (X-Y motion control) and 3102i (X-Y motion control plus interpolation) – AMCI’s 3100 series modules provide encoder feedback in addition to a range of motion commands, satisfying simple to sophisticated application requirements.

Both the 3102 and 3102i are 100-per-cent compatible with Micrologix 1100, 1200 and 1400, and are said to be easy to program using Allen-Bradley’s RSLogix 500 software.

AMCI’s 3100 series motion modules are designed to be easy to program with no extra software required and offer a range of motion commands, such as registration, jogging/changing speed on the fly and blend move.

Linear and circular interpolation is exclusive to the 3102i module, enabling more sophisticated motion control.

Both modules provide encoder feedback, providing closed-loop positioning.

The 3102 module can control servo and/or stepper drives, depending on requirements, with step/direction input.

Motion commands include jog, home and point-to-point control.

Developed to simplify more complex applications, the 3102i module includes linear and circular interpolation commands.

These additional features give the module the ability to reach specific target positions and output contoured motion profiles.

Additional applications include high-speed assembly, water-jet cutting, storage and sorting, laser trimming and needle-inspection systems.
