Cam controller FM 452

For position-dependent or time-dependent tasks


Cam controller FM 452 for SIMATIC S7-400

The FM 452 electronic cam controller is a 1-channel module for the solution of position-dependent or time-dependent tasks.
The FM 452 is far superior to mechanical cam controllers, due particularly to its high level of flexibility.
An incremental encoder, an SSI encoder or a 24 V initiator can be connected to the module.


  • 32 cam tracks can be read by the automation system's CPU    

  • 16 cam tracks can be output directly over integrated digital outputs

  • The module can be quickly adapted to the relevant cam control application by assigning appropriate parameters.

  • The module off-loads the CPU thanks to autonomous, actual value-dependent setting and resetting of electronic cams.
