VersaMax Micro 64 control system from GE Fanuc Automation provides a wide range of I/O modules and a variety of communications options including Ethernet. Suitable for packaging, assembly, and SCADA applications, the unit can be equipped with multiple operator interfaces and motion solutions for simple integration add-ons. A common software programming and tag database for the operator interface and controller is said to help shorten engineering development time and simplify system troubleshooting.

For motion applications, the unit supports four 65 kHz PulseTrain/PWM outputs and can be adapted to the company's line of PowerCube stepper amplifiers and motors or S2K servo controllers. High-speed counter accommodates four 100 kHz type A counters, or one type B counter, for precise motion positioning. System also supports a Memory Module that can be connected to download program changes without a PC. A Palm handheld device can also be interfaced to the controller. A wide range of communication options, including serial (SNP, RTU slave and master, USB) and Ethernet (SRTP and Modbus TCP), enable interface to bar-code readers, pagers, modems, Ethernet LANs, and operator interfaces.
