AMC's SLCPac integrates high-speed control functions into an easy-to-use snap-in module that installs into any Allen-Bradley SCL 500 rack slot. Designed as an alternative to conventional photo-optic sensors or mechanical limit switches this resolver-based system uses an electronic controller for precise storing of setpoints and energizing of outputs. This provides more control over the speeds and timing of an entire line and enables users to store multiple programs.
