Centricity Corporation Introduces NETWORKING within the MS Series Line of Low-Cost, High-Precision Programmable Indexers


GIRARD, OH - Centricity Corporation, in Girard, Ohio, announces network capability within its line of high precision programmable indexers. Now all the parameters and features of the popular MS Series Indexer can be accessed over the network, allowing your PLC to store multiple indexer configurations. So if one job is a 6-stop indexer moving clockwise, and another job is an 11-stop indexer moving counter clockwise, and so on... your PLC can store and send the information directly to the indexer drive. All of Centricity's configurable parameters are included such as number of stops, direction of rotation, move time, torque limiting, as well as complex motion profiles, and variable continuous speed applications.

Centricity's MS Series Indexers have communication interfaces to connect to a variety of major fieldbus networks including Profibus, DeviceNet, Rockwell / Allen Bradley Ethernet IP, and the open and widely used Modbus protocol via Ethernet. Ethernet communications provides access to the Internet giving you global access, wherever your indexer resides. There has never been a rotary system quite like the network capable MS Series Indexer from Centricity Corporation.

Now MS Series Indexers can be configured over the network, or with Centricity's supplied touch screen pendant. And there is no programming language to learn. All parameters are in simple English such as Move Time, Number of Stations, and Move Direction, instead of confusing terminology like Velocity and Acceleration. The MS Series Indexer was developed so that anyone can easily make use of its extensive capabilities.

Supplied assembled, wired, and tested. Just connect power, bolt on the dial plate, and you're ready to go. There is nothing else to buy.

Imagine the productivity improvements possible when running multiple setups on the same indexer with no change-over time. Contact Bob Miles at 330-545-5624, or visit our website at www.centricity.net to learn more.
