Integrated Motion Controller

Controlling up to four axes of motion, the CompactLogix 1768-L43 controller is targeted for material handling, packaging, metal forming, and other applications that require speed, motion synchronization, and informationsharing capabilities.

The unit supports a full range of networks including DeviceNet, ControlNet, and Ethernet/IP. The controller uses CompactFlash memory as program and firmware storage to permit loading on multiple controllers. The controller supports 38 embedded motion instructions and employs RSLogix 5000 programming software.
