Motor Controller With I/O

Jan. 12, 2006
The SMC Flex motor controller is for conveyors, pumps, chillers, and other applications.

It includes I/O and has two inputs and four outputs. The unit manages processes and monitors motor systems from the networked softstarter. This moves the control of some industrial processes closer to the motor, lowering wiring and programming costs. The SMC Flex features an internal bypass-contactor for less heat and a smaller footprint than previous motor controllers.
