NX-series NX1P2 CPU Units


Up to eight axes of control via EtherCAT

Advanced motion control and networks for onsite IoT in a Sysmac entry model

NX1P2 Features 1

Advanced motion control

The built-in EtherCAT port and advanced motion control make machines faster and more precise

• EtherCAT simplifies the wiring to up to eight servo systems including for single-axis position control.
• Up to four axes of motion control. Electronic cams and interpolation increase machine speed and precision.


• Linear interpolation and circular interpolation for precise machining and high-speed handling

NX1P2 Features 4

Electronic cam

• Electronic cam enables continuous and high-speed machine operation
• Electronic cam makes it possible to easily change operation timing via a program through computerized cam operation to meet diverse production needs, which is difficult with mechanical cam

NX1P2 Features 5
NX1P2 Features 6

Data transmission delay is compensated to synchronize servomotors.
Synchronized axes provide high-precision positioning.
• EtherCAT enables one cable to connect the NX1P with servo drives, reducing wiring work.

1S AC Servo System

1S AC Servo System
• No battery, no maintenance. No need for homing sequence improving machine uptime
• 23 bit high resolution encoder as standard
• Improved loop control for low overshoot and quick settling time
• Safety function: STO

NX1P2 Features 7

Networks for onsite IoT

IO-Link brings IoT to the sensor level

• EtherCAT connects I/O devices, motion devices, safety controllers, and vision systems with a single cable.
  You can check machine information by monitoring the status of the connected components.
• EtherNet/IP enables communications with a host PC and data links between NJ/NX Controllers and CJ PLCs.
• The NX1P can easily connect to the cloud using the MQTT Communication Library, and data on the manufacturing site
  can be collected securely.

NX1P2 Features 9

Predictive maintenance using IO-Link

You can start predictive maintenance with visualization of the status of a small-sized machine.
IO-Link functionality can be added to existing machines.
