The new KurtUSB MLX (multifunctional LVDT eXtra) modular building
block processes input from various electrical signals and can provide
programmable responses for automatic operation. Designed for stepper motors,
gauging systems, automation and PLC applications, the module
has a powerful CPU and software that processes electrical signals from
different sensors. This allows the MLX to be configured to work with several
different devices, including LVDT probes, air to electric transducers, temperature
sensors, eddy current sensors and custom software. With an internal PLC,
the MLX can be programmed with industry-standard ladder logic, and can control
complex automated equipment through discrete outputs, stepper motors, analogue
outputs or remote DeviceNet devices.
