D-MAX Controller

  • Improved dynamic response over the legacy Fife controllers, which were already the industry standard for web guiding
  • Modular design allows optional dual-drive configuration for controlling sensor position or another guide
  • Dual-drive configuration is backwards compatible to other Fife web guide controllers
  • Powered by 24 VDC for all new systems and 48 VDC for legacy systems, dating back over 20 years
  • Integrated IEC 61131-3 programming is accessed by industry standard workbench software
  • Provides programming flexibility to customize the D-MAX similar to a softlogic controller for unique applications
  • Built-in Ethernet IP & Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP base communication with a proprietary deterministic layer for guaranteed mode changes and general control functions
  • Accessible from any PLC that communicates over ControlNet, DeviceNet, Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP, EtherNet/IP, Profibus, Profinet, CC Link, and CANopen
  • IP-54 protection classification. UL, cUL, and CE certification.
