compact design

A successfully designed 8-axis compact controller with a 123 mm width x 115 mm height unit. A 60% reduction in width from the predecessor controller which contributes to space savings within the controller cabinet.

field network options

Allows direct connection with the major field networks including DeviceNet, CC-Link, PROFIBUS-DP, MECHATROLINK, CompoNet, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP and ProfiNet.

Network Specification Features:

  • 256 positioning points per each axis
  • Allows designation of position and speed by direct numerical setting
  • Ability to verify current position in real-time
  • Significant communication time reduction within the controller (Approximately by 1/10 compared to the predecessor model)


pulse-/servomotor support

A single MSEP controller can operate both the pulse motor and the servo motor type actuators, reducing set-up time
significantly such as wiring even when different types of actuators have to be used at the same time.

simple absolute option

An absolute position encoder is available, which saves the position data by battery back-up, providing prompt operation without returning to the home position after power down. Even in an emergency shut-off or momentary power-loss, it allows continuous operation from its last position.

notice of maintenance requests

The total number of actuator movements and the total distance travelled are calculated and recorded in the controller, and when the predetermined count or distance is exceeded, a message is send to an external device. You can use this function to check when the actuator needs re-greasing or periodic inspection.

Recording the alarm occurrence time with the calendar function

An additional clock function facilitates the alarm analysis from the convenience of the display screen that shows the time of the alarm occurrence. (The retention period of the date and time data is 10 days)
