Indramat VT-HNC

Indramat VT-HNC

The Indramat VT-HNC100 is a programmable NC (Numerical Control) device tailored for managing closed-loop axes in industrial environments. It can control both hydraulic and electrical drives, meeting stringent demands for precision in closed-loop systems. The HNC100 is robust, built to withstand industrial conditions, including resistance to interference, vibration, shock, and varied climate situations. It also aligns with EC Directives, signifying its adherence to European standards.

The controller is versatile, with outputs for voltage or current control variables and multiple configuration options for different control needs, such as position, pressure/force, or even position-dependent braking. For more complex requirements, it offers alternating closed-loop control between position and pressure and synchronization control for systems operating with two axes. These features highlight the HNC100's adaptability and suitability for a range of industrial applications requiring precise and reliable control.

VT-HNC Type Code Breakdown

- Digital NC control HNC100
- Version for 1 hydraulic axis = 1
- Version for 2 hydraulic axes = 2
- Component series 20 to 29 = 2X (20 to 29: unchanged installation and connection dimensions)

- Type of installation:
- Housing for wall-mounting = W
- Housing for rack installation = M

- For single-axis version:
- 8 digital inputs/outputs = 08
- 24 digital inputs/outputs = 24

- For 2-axis version:

- 16 digital inputs/outputs = 16

Further details in clear text:
Without evaluation electronics = 0
On enquiry only = A - Evaluation electronics for 2 inductive position transducers (not possible in conjunction with INTERBUS-S or CANopen)

- 0 = Without bus interfacing
- P = Profibus DP
- C = CANopen
