Multi-Axis Controller

Mike McLeod   


Omron CK3M-Series programmable controller offers industry-leading output speeds.

Omron Automation Americas added a programmable multi-axis controller to its CK3M family. The multi-axis controller’s output speeds reach 50µs/5 axes. Originally developed by Delta Tau
Systems (now part of Omron), the CK3M connects to virtually any motor or encoder using EtherCAT and encoder communication protocols. Machine builders can avoid developing their own controller boards as well as specialized control algorithms to integrate a separate controller for each device when just a single controller is needed for highspeed synchronized control. Machine builders can incorporate their own advanced control with its support for ANSI C or an original programming language.
