Between the range of axis positioners, SIDAC Axes/ PLC module represents the result of complex technological studies to offer modular solutions, all the potentialities with very high performance required for the wold of modern automation are available to the customer.

The wide range of circuit-boards available permits to realize axes-control functions, also with interpolation(CNC), logical function (PLC), digital and analog signal controls, either by executing them by only one module or distributing them on several modules – interfacing them using a simple serial connection. These modules, connected to industrial PCs or terminals manufactured by SIDAC, represent the powerful CNC units that, with their dedicated software, are distributed to manufactures of machine tools and special machinery where high reliability excellent performances and simplicity of use (by guided menus) is required.

Due to the different communication protocols available, it is also possible to interface the SIDAC modules with all the standard hardware systems available on the market (PC, PLC, Terminals), in other to reach highest optimization on any application. The SIDAC modules are provided with very sophisticated firmware and with software library which permit among other things to define the installed hardware ad to set the modalities, the responses  and dynamics of motion on a machine or a transfer line. Although SIDAC modules have been studied for sophisticated applications and for complex machinery of high performance, the low cost and the capacity to group several functions, which are normally carried out by different devices, permit their utilization in low field of applications.
