Upgraded with encoder-based positioning technology, the SSC1500 Gen 2 control system is available in two packages: one for hydraulic presses (FTL072) and the other for press brakes (FTL073). By incorporating the encoder-based positioning feature, the press operator can set the stop positions for the ram from an LCD keypad display, eliminating the time-consuming process of manually adjusting limit switches. The SSC1500 Gen 2 has an external monitoring function assessing the state of the relays on every stroke to prevent potential failure.
