EMG iCON® sends its greetings

EMG control electronics a success story from yesterday to today

EMG has many years of experience and competence in the development and application of modern controllers. The development began several decades ago with analog electronic modules and led via the programmable logic controller SPC16 to the series of the intelligent control system EMG iCON® used today. As already described in an earlier article, all systems today are supplied with the EMG iCON® XE control amplifier.

The EMG iCON® series can be adapted to all customer requirements, as different modules in the control cabinet can be arranged individually and combined with each other on a DIN rail. The individual modules are connected via a separate CANopen fieldbus.

And what is now all part of the EMG iCON® series?

First there is the EMG iCON® XE intelligent digital control system itself, which is used today as the standard for all applications in strip guiding controls and quality assurance systems. Operation is via a user friendly graphical HMI (Human Machine Interface) with touch function (EMG iCON® VS) which is intended for installation in a control cabinet door or, in the case of furnace control, also for installation inside the control cabinet.

By using different controller versions and expansion modules, all known requirements for strip guiding and quality assurance systems can be met easily and with minimal spare parts handling due to the combination of standard modules. 

For example, the roll stand or furnace control is carried out in conjunction with EMG iCON® IO. An input/output module, each with 10 integrated digital inputs/outputs and additional analogue AD/DA interfaces.

Applications with hydraulic movement of large masses (e.g. decoiler or recoiler) are realized in connection with EMG iCON® SV. A power amplifier module with secondary control loop, which is used for two-stage servo valves.

EMG iCON® IS is then used to connect incremental encoders or absolute encoders (position encoders) via Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI). Two channels can be read in per module and the recorded measured values are forwarded to the EMG iCON® XE control amplifier via CANopen field bus.

You don't have to remember everything!

Simply download our two-page product brochure and print it out in DIN A3 format and you have everything clearly arranged and presented in a compact form. 


With the EMG controller series EMG iCON® you rely on an established and long-term available electronic solution for your control requirements. Through continuous and step-by-step innovation, you automatically participate in the further development of electronics, but at the same time you can also rely on the long-term availability of the various system generations. Due to the high modularization and simple combinability of the components, commissioning costs and spare parts stocking costs are drastically reduced. With EMG, you can rely on tradition, availability, cost efficiency and future security in every respect.
