    Microcompax MA 100

    MicroCompax MA100 is a stand-alone single-axis Positioner module, which is responsible for the control of hydraulic actuator with proportional valve, throught 4/20 mA loop. It is presented as a “blind” device, characterized by a plastic container to be fitted directly inside the electrical panel, on a DIN rail. Equipped with multi-colored indicator LEDs for easy diagnostics and putting into service, it can be  reconfigured on-site, using a USB port and a special software installed on Windows systems.
    This mdule has two current loop inputs and two current loop outputs.
    An input and an output are dedicated to driving the valve, and to reading the position feedback.
    An input can be used as a setpoint input, to control the valve remotely.
    An output is configured as a monitor of the valve position, to allow a remote viewing of the correct implementation of the setpoint commands.

    MINICOMPAX is a family of single-axis and twin-axis for numerically-controlled positioning on drive axes actuated by DC servo-motors, brushless motors, AC motors (on/off or inverter-controlled type), stepping motors and proportional hydraulic system. MINICOMPAX is built by using the  minimum configuration of the CNC multi-axis system manufactured by SIDAC by utilizing the same modular hardware.

    Therefore, it maintains the same performances and reliability for heavy-duty ambients. The different hardware models, which SIDAC proposes, can be provided with standard software at customer’s choice according to the numerous versions available for the market. The customer can develop his own customized software or refer to SIDAC’s software for specific applications. The field of application is very wide: from the classical machine tool to general automation in every industrial field. For any motion wherever an axis must be moved with precision and repeatability and where easy and immediate setting of a dimension or a program containing sizes is required, MINICOMPAX is suitable for this kind of application in such a way as to solve the usual problems caused by traditional techniques which today have become obsolete. Furthermore, the low cost and the simplicity of installation make MINICOMPAX an extremely competitive product, mainly when considering the achievable results.
