Controller-integrated Actuator Features of ERC3 1. Space-saving and wire-saving, because no space is needed to The space-saving design lets you effectively utilize your facility. Controllers for actuators No need for controller space Empty! Built-in controller All you need is the actuator, because a controller is built in. No space is needed to install controllers, so the control panel can be made smaller. 2. Since a controller is built into the actuator, teaching can be performed near the actuator. The teaching site is far from the control panel, so checking the movement is difficult. Teaching...

The ERC3 is a ROBO Cylinder comprising a built-in controller and actuator. Two types of controllers are available for the ERC3: “CON” type and “MEC” type. Specify an appropriate type in your order. Use this type if you use motorized cylinder applications frequently. • 16 positioning points under the standard specification, extendable up to 512 points when the PIO converter (optional) is used • Connectable to major field networks using the gateway unit (optional) Use this type if the actuator only needs to move through 2 or 3 points, just like an air cylinder. • Operable only with the Quick Teach...

Meeting Wide-ranging Applications Actuator Product Lineup The product lineup of the controller-integrated actuator series ERC3 is shown below. Simple, dustproof type (stainless sheet type) [ERC3D] Slider type Ball screw lead (mm) External view The above values are all based on operating each unit at an acceleration/deceleration of 0.3 G with the high-output setting enabled. The maximum speed may not be reached when the stroke is shorter. Also note that the longer the stroke, the lower the maximum speed becomes in order to avoid reaching a dangerous speed. For details, refer to the specification...

Standard type [ERC3] Slider type Ball screw lead (mm) External view The above values are all based on operating each unit at an acceleration/deceleration of 0.3 G with the high-output setting enabled. The maximum speed may not be reached when the stroke is shorter. Also note that the longer the stroke, the lower the maximum speed becomes in order to avoid reaching a dangerous speed. For details, refer to the specification page of each model. The maximum payload is based on operation at the rated acceleration. The higher the acceleration, the lower the maximum payload becomes. For details, refer...

How to Select Your Controller The lineup of ERC3 built-in controllers is shown below. Controller Types CON type • 2 or 3 positioning points (Same controls possible with an air cylinder can be achieved.) • Quick Teach supported Operation Modes Positioner mode Normal operation (Move the actuator by specifying position numbers through a PLC, etc.) Pulse-train control mode Move the actuator using pulse signals from a host controller. • Can increase the number of positioning points to a maximum of 512 using the PIO converter, or can use the ERC3 as a simple absolute unit • Can access field networks...

The basic types of ERC3 built-in controllers are listed below. Select one of the following types for any standard application. ➀ Basic type System configuration PLC Controller type CON type (Up to 16 positioning points) Operation mode Positioner mode Teaching pendant CON-PTA PC software ➁ Basic type when the Quick Teach is used Quick Teach (Refer to P. 7 and 51.) System configuration Controller type MEC type (2 or 3 positioning points) Operation mode Positioner mode Quick Teach

Quick Teach The ERC3 can be operated without a separate 24-V power supply. The Quick Teach lets you operate your actuator with ease simply by operating the buttons and dials on the operation panel without having to supply a separate 24V power supply or send signals from a PLC. With the Quick Teach, you can change the number of stop positions (between 2 and 3), change the stop position, speed and acceleration, or perform trial operation (forward/ reverse, continuous operation). * The above functions are enabled when the ERC3 controller is of the “MEC” type. Only JOG operation can be performed when...

Explanation of the Operation Panel HOME MANUAL button When the actuator is started, home return is performed first to confirm the coordinate position of 0mm. Press this button (and hold it for at least 1 second) to set the acceleration/speed or perform a test run. Use buttons in this area to actually move the actuator and check the saved operation. Use buttons in this area to set how you want the actuator to move. MIDDLE POS Pressing this button disables the operation and all inputs from the operation panel buttons. It also enables PIO commands to the ERC3. Use this button to switch between modes...

Quick Teach Operation Method Changing the acceleration/speed ➊ Press and hold the MANUAL button. ➊ ➋ Press the HOME button. ➋ ➌ Confirm that the Accel & Speed LED is lit. ➍ Press the button corresponding to the stop position (FWD POS/MIDDLE ➌ POS/BACK POS) where you want to change the acceleration/speed. * The MIDDLE POS button is available when the actuator is stopping at three positions. ➎ Turn the Accel/Speed knobs. * You can use the knobs to change the acceleration and speed within a range of 1% to 100% of the rated acceleration/deceleration and maximum speed, respectively. The minimum speed...

Application Examples Slider type Inkjet printer system Component palletizing system Inkjet printer Printer head This system prints on components using an inkjet printer. The ERC3 is used to move components. Since the ERC3 can operate at a constant speed, stable printing quality can be achieved. This ERC3-based system palletizes automobile components. Two axes are arranged separately to pick components and place them onto the pallet. The takt time can be reduced by performing approach and return at high speed and placement at low speed. Rod type Product life testing system This ERC3-based system...
