Integrated Control

Integrated control means the indexer is embedded within the complete system and accepts commands from the host computer "on-line" throughout the entire motion process. Communication, operator interface and the I/O functions are designed as separate elements of the system. Control and management of the motion sequence is done by the host computer. In this case the indexer acts as an intelligent peripheral. CNC (computer numerical control) applications are well suited for integrated control because the data input is "dynamic", or changing frequently.
