RSEL + RCON + REC = R-Unit
R-Unit is the new generation of space-saving controllers that are coupled via module connection and are easily interchangeable. These include the RSEL program controller, the RCON positioning controller and the REC controller for the motion control of EleCylinders.
The controller units with identical connections allow free selection and combination of connected electric actuators and their control methods.
RSEL - Compact program controller for up to 16 actuators
Up to 8 axes can be connected to the RSEL controller and, in conjunction with the REC controller, up to 16 actuators.
It supports both linear and interpolating travels. It is also possible to control the connected actuators by dividing them into two groups.
The space required for the control panel is up to 67% less compared to previous IAI models (2 MSEL controller with 4 actuators each), where a 4-axis actuator is connected to a single driver unit. Costs are reduced by approximately 43 %.
Servo motor actuators are operated with the XSEL multi-axis program controller. Up to 8 axes can be controlled simultaneously. They can also move interpolating. Of a maximum of 255 programs, up to 16 run in parallel in real time.
XSEL program controllers can also be used independently. They have various interfaces for communication with the periphery. For systems with up to 196 digital inputs and outputs, no PLC is required.
The latest teaching pendantTB-03 can be connected to all controllers using the appropriate cables. The same functions and operating characteristics of the previous TB-02 are available.
In combination with the EleCylinder series, it can also communicate wirelessly via WLAN. One of the advantages of this for the user is that actuators already permanently installed behind covers can be easily reprogrammed at any time.
Connection to fieldbus networks
Actuators are connected to fieldbuses such as Profinet, Profibus, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP or CC-Link either via a gateway or directly via a corresponding interface at the controller. The network table indicates which controller is compatible with which fieldbus.
Configuration files can be downloaded free of charge under ➥ Field Network.
