For dual axis control, the EMP402 controller provides coordinated moves via linear interpolation.
For system solutions requiring connection to an upper level controller, PLC or HMI, Oriental Motor offers several networked products to allow for easy control using I/O or RS-485 / Modbus (RTU) networks.

For conveyors that require control of two axes, Oriental Motor offers the EMP402 Controllers which allow for synchronization of two axes.
Various operation commands are provided for positioning operation, return-to-home operation and dual axis linear interpolation functions. The operator only needs to set the parameters on the controller to make it perform as desired.
A series of operation patterns can be programmed using dedicated commands. This is an ideal function for distributed system control.
General-purpose I/O signals are provided in addition to dedicated I/Os such as pulse output and limit-sensor input. Synchronization with peripherals is also possible.
Oriental Motor offers Network products under the FLEX concept, meaning each product is equipped with an interface that connects to various master controllers featuring I/O, RS-485 / Modbus (RTU) or Factory Automation. Networked products enable operating data and parameters for each motor to be set at a Master Controller and sent to each driver. In addition, operation commands can be input send set using various communication methods to meet the need of a wide range of available Network Solutions.
Available Network Solutions
1. I/O - Allows the driver to be connected directly to a controller or PLC to configure the operating system with I/O.
2. RS-485 / Modbus (RTU) - Operating data and parameters can be set and operation commands can be input using RS-485 communication. Up to 31 drivers can be connected to each serial communication module. Also there is a function that enables the simultaneous start of multiple axes. The protocol supports Modbus (RTU), enable connection with devices such as a touch screen (HMI) or PCs.
3. Factory Automation Network - Use of a network converter (sold separately) enables support with CC-Link, MECHATROLINK or EtherCAT communication. Operating data and parameters can be set and operation commands can be input using various communication methods.
For Connecting to Factory Automation (FA) Networks
The communication protocol of the master controller, Factory Automation (FA) network, is converted to Oriental Motor's own RS-485 communication protocol. Connection to FLEX-compatible products is completed with one RS-485 communication cable.
