MODULAR OPTIONS. MAXIMUM AUTOMATION CONTROL.

You know the performance your machine needs from its controller platform. What does our PLC portfolio offer? Smart, scalable options. Decentralized, machine-frame mountable controllers. Smart panels, cabinet-based PLC controller hardware and more. It’s all engineered to give you choices, not trap you into a “solution” that only meets half of your needs.

In addition, all our controllers share these common features, making choosing any of them simple:

The IEC611131-3 standard
Precise synchronization of many axes with only one controller
Real-time communication across several levels
Multiprotocol communications support, including EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, and ProfiBUS
AMK completes the decentralized motion control revolution with the AMKASMART iSA decentralized controller. The iSA controller lets you eliminate the control cabinet with an industry-first machine-mountable component.
