Smart Manufacturing
Bringing the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to Life

Smart manufacturing and industrial operations embrace a new way forward. This new direction is highly-connected and knowledge-enabled, where devices and processes are connected, monitored, and optimized.

Smart operations require the use of new and disruptive technologies, from analytics and mobile to collaborative machines. These technologies communicate with each other and adapt to internal and external conditions. They also require new strategies that make the most of these technologies to create flexible, efficient, responsive, and secure operations.

Tolomatic ACSI Actuator Control Solutions
Integrated Servo Motor/Drive/Controller

The ACSI with an integrated servo motor creates a space-saving machine design by eliminating a drive in a cabinet. The ACSI can be controlled with simple digital I/O (24Vdc), analog input (0-10Vdc or 4-20mA) or robust industrial Ethernet: EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP. Optimized for linear or rotary operation. With built-in configurations for all of Tolomatic's electric actuators, the ACSI integrated servo motor/drive/controller creates linear motion quickly and easily in the desired linear units. When ordered with a Tolomatic actuator, the ACSI will be mounted to the actuator, configured and tested as a system.
