IndraMotion MTX compact

IndraMotion MTX compact

IndraMotion MTX compact – space-saving rack version for distributed control technology. With all interfaces, including 8 digital fast I/Os, it has all the necessary functionality for simple CNC stations or standard machines with up to 8 axes.

The controller allows connection of all operating and visualization devices and has an integrated expansion interface for add-on modules and I/O devices. Functionality modules are available which allow upgrading using special interfaces. For use in modular systems using distributed control equipment, the IndraMotion MTX compact offers a fast Ethernet interface for data and control networking. The system also features a PROFIBUS DP interface for connection of distributed I/O devices or compact HMI devices.
