Designed as an EtherCAT master controller and motion controller with protection to IP20, the powerful automation system CPX-E for factory and process automation with NE21-specific certifications is becoming the central control system for handling technology. Several bus modules are available for the configuration as a compact and low-cost remote I/O.

The MPS® transfer system has been developed for everyone who wants to make headway with training, be it for the electrical or metal trades or for training technicians and engineers in mechatronics.

Modular: easy expansion in individual steps – perfect for special machine building.

A new interface concept that offers many possibilities for direct combination of individual stations.

The Pick&Place station is equipped with a two-axis Pick&Place module. Workpiece housings placed on the conveyor are detected by an optical diffuse sensor. The workpiece is transported to the pneumatic separator on the conveyor and detected by a second diffuse sensor. The Pick&Place module picks up a workpiece insert from the slide and places it on the workpiece housing. The complete workpiece (housing and insert) is released by the separator and transported to the end of the conveyor. A light barrier detects the workpiece at the end of the conveyor.

Control solutions for simple to medium complexity electrical and/or pneumatic systems.
