Precision accurate to the point
efficient | dynamic | precise

The high-efficiency 350 W power amplifier (1.000 W peak power) in connection with our dynamic stepper motor bring the power precisely to the point. And over the entire speed range of up to 100 m/min without substantial heating. GEKKO is cool!

GEKKO 140 is the little brother of the GEKKO 350. With its efficient 140 W power output stage it reaches a maximum feed rate of up to 50 m/min.

All other functions are the same: GEKKO 140 includes the same features, the identical operation and same plug connectors as GEKKO 350.

Both GEKKO variants are powered by the same highly dynamic stepper motor (7 Nm).

Communicative & flexible
SPS | RS232 | CAN

Via standardized DSUB connector, the controller can be easily connected to a PLC.
In addition, a RS232 interface is integrated as standard. This can parameterize, monitor and visualize the control. Expansion modules can be connected via the CAN bus.

Plain text for all
Polyglott | HotKey | Backlight

The clearly structured control panel allows intuitive operation. All settings and message texts can be customized deposited in up to ten different languages. German and English are integrated as standard in all models. The accompanying PC software Textprogrammer can be obtained free of charge from our website (>>products >> GEKKO accessories >> GEKKO Software).

The programmable hotkey button enables the user to activate any of the parameters for direct access. The white LCD backlight in combination with a modern transflective display ensures excellent readability even under difficult conditions.

IP54 | ExtTableau | I/OExpander

Optionally, the unit can be fitted in the tightness class IP54. Thereby the complete connector box is expanded with a pipe cap. For space-saving design, the control panel can be mounted separately. The panel with dimensions of only 160 x 120 x 32 mm can be mounted in the operating area and the control system disappears into the machine.

Expansion modules with custom functions can be integrated via the CAN bus.

Textprogrammer | HippoForGekko

Foreign language files can be transferred with Textprogrammer to the control system via the RS232 interface.

HippoForGekko is a PC tool to read all parameter settings of the labeling control system, to save it in a file and load it again to a (further) control. It is a simple tool for backing up or copying all parameter sets of a control system via the RS232 interface.

Why “GEKKO”?

"Geckos are a family of Squamata. They populate the earth since about 50 million years ago the and have spread throughout its development worldwide. Thanks to their outstanding adaptability geckos have conquered the diverse habitats and are found both in the temperate zones as well as in the world's deserts and the tropics. There they have brought it to an almost unmanageable biodiversity. "[]
