Alpha 5 Series offers compatibility with general-purpose communication: VV type. Positioning function is embedded as standard in general purpose interface unit “ALPHA5 VV”. As the ALPHA5 VV type is the standard model, external positioning unit or dedicated items for positioning are not required. The following operations are enabled by one unit: Positioning via Modbus-RTU communications (immediate value data) Positioning via Di/Do signal (positioning data 15 points*) Controlling positions, speeds and torques via pulse/analog input. Operations such as PTP positioning operation, parameter edit, and various monitoring are enabled. All you need to do is connect HMI (POD), general-purpose PLC, or PC controller directly to servo amplifier via Modbus-RTU communications. It is also compatible with SX bus: VS Type and LS type – A sophisticated motion control system that has synchronization and interpolation controls can be configured easily.
