  • Maximum rated payload of 10 kg
  • Full interpolated path motion capability
  • Minimum positioning repeatability of ±0.015 mm
  • Vertical axis with 200 or 300 mm stroke and 360° rotation
*Based on a 1" upward move, 12" horizontal move, 1" down move and return using the IX-500-200.


Controller Features

Using an enhanced version of IAI's SEL programming language (specifically designed for non-programmers), the acclaimed X-SEL® controller takes advanced applications and makes them plug & play easy.

You will dramatically reduce your engineering time and costs with the built-in-commands that simplify traditionally tedious programming tasks related to palletizing, dispensing, machine vision integration, and more.

Ethernet networking, high speed multi-tasking, synchronous drive control, infinite motion, expandable I/O and a unique "Push" function (for control of compression and torque) are just some of the benefits you get using the X-SEL® controller.

Truly User-Friendly Software

  • Assign your own names to all points & variables
  • Run operations line-by-line for easy fine-tuning and de-bugging
  • Control torque and compression with the innovative "Push" function
  • Teach just 3 points then use the "Palletize" command to have the controller calculate the rest
