Motion control has a key role in machining tools, robotic control, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, injection molding machines, and digital home electronics inspection machines. The equipment investment in this field has been growing largely in recent years.
Contec provides optimal solutions to customers by combining our motion control products and Oriental Motor’s EZ limo series electric slider for workpiece transporting and various positioning, and automated inspections with a CCD camera.
In this usage example, we introduce the EZ limo series electric slider, an all-in-one electric slider, motor and controller. The electric slider portion allows for higher accuracy and more usability during installation, including mounting and wiring. The motor portion adopts a highly reliable, high-speed stepping motor with high load capacity. Combined in one controller with the functions required for positioning electric sliders, this allows for easy operation.

This is an example of using a 4-axis high functional motion control board [SMC-4DF-PCI] with the EZ limo EZSⅡ series.
Dedicated terminal block which enables easy wiring is used for the connection. For this example system, PCI expansion adaptor and PCI expansion chassis to laptop computer is used as controller and it operates bi-axis control (X-Y). A laser pointer is connected as a carrier.

This is an example of connecting [CN2][CN3] of dedicated terminal block [CCB-SMC2] with user I/O connector of motor controller.
For this connection case, motor controller is set as [controller mode].
This is an example of connecting [CN6] and [CN7] with a sensor unit (±LIM, ORG) attached to an X-/Y-axis electric slider body.
This is a sample program which operates under this system structure. Initial setting is embedded, capable of each motion including JOG, PTP, ORG right away with target motor indicated below. The main points of the program are listed with easy-to-understand comments.
