Advanced motion control
The NX1P comes equipped with the built-in EtherCAT port and controls up to eight servo systems. Motion control for up to four synchronized axes increases machine speed and precision.

Features

  1. Advanced motion control
    The NX1P comes equipped with the built-in EtherCAT port and controls up to eight servo systems. Motion control for up to four synchronized axes increases machine speed and precision.
    • Electronic cam for continuous and high-speed machine operation and interpolation for precise machining improve productivity and manufacturing quality.
  2. Networks for IoT at production sites
    Data can be collected from devices via EtherCAT and IO-Link for high value-added manufacturing.
    • EtherNet/IP enables data sharing with a host PC and between controllers on different machines.
    • EtherCAT connects I/O devices, motion devices, vision systems, and safety controllers with a single cable. Machine information can be checked by monitoring the status of the connected components.
    • The NX1P can monitor sensor data through the IO-Link master unit to reduce downtime by detecting errors and to perform predictive maintenance by monitoring status.
  3. High-performance and easy-to-use all-in-one compact controller
    • LD instruction execution time is 3.3 ns - the fastest in its class*2.
    • The built-in EtherCAT master functionality allows the NX1P CPU Unit to perform high-speed motion control and remote I/O control.
    • Sequence control and motion control are integrated in one controller. The built-in position control functionality reduces not only loss of communication time between the CPU unit and position control unit but also complexity of communication settings between the units.
    • The NX1P conforms to IEC 61131-3 standard programming and PLCopen® Function Blocks for motion control. Programming with variables allows users to create complex programs efficiently. All instructions used for the NX7/NJ5/NJ3/NJ1 can be used for the NX1P, which cuts programming time.
    • The Push-In Plus terminals used for the CPU unit and NX I/O Units save wiring time.
    • The NX1P retains user programs, set values, and variables during power interruption in the built-in non-volatile memory. No battery, no maintenance.
