Ultimate machine productivity through powerful networked, onboard automation and motion control

  • Onboard MCi co-processor based machine controller, capable of controlling the overall machine
  • MCi machine controller configured using industry standard IEC 61131-3 programming languages within the CODESYS programming environment
  • Additional MCi click-in modules can be added for multi-processing, giving even greater machine control capability
  • Achieve performance without effort through access to a comprehensive library of drive and machine control function blocks and applications

Ethernet communications with IEEE 1588 V2 network synchronization

  • IEEE 1588 V2 hardware implementation for maximum synchronization accuracy
  • Integrated dual port switch for easy connectivity
  • Integration with external I/O and control of non-intelligent drives

Maximize machine productivity through shaft performance with any motor technology

  • High bandwidth motor control algorithm, including servo control with up to 3,300 Hz current loop bandwidth and 250 Hz speed loop bandwidth
  • Flexible three channel encoder port, for feedback encoder, reference encoder and a simulated encoder output. Encoder inputs are able to accept a wide range of feedback devices, from robust resolvers to high resolution SinCos encoders

Maximize throughput while protecting people and machinery, meeting modern machine safety requirements

  • Dual STO for integration with safety systems and elimination of external components
  • Advanced safety* to meet the IEC 61800-5-2 functional safety standard, covering numerous functions including STO, Safe Stop 1 and 2, Safe Limited Speed, Safe Limited Position etc

*Future release
