FA-M3V is the result of a quest for high performance and advances functionality. FA-M3R features minimum scan time of 100μs and is faster than microcomputer boards.
F3NC96-0N Positioning Module supports MECHATROLINK-Ⅱ, an open field network standard designed for high-speed motion control, and is the No.1 choice for configuring a system involving many controlled axes.

  • Occupying a single slot of the base module, the module can control up to 15 axes (motors), and can be easily connected to motors using connectors, requiring minimal wiring time and cost.
  • A high baud rate of 10 Mbps supports a short cycle time of 1 ms per set of 8 axes, which means quicker response and better synchronization with peripheral devices.
  • Command transmission enables maximum utilization of motor performance (high speed and resolution) to achieve fast and accurate positioning control.
