Motion controller offers PLC sequence and motion functions on a single platform
12 January 2010
The Yaskawa MP2300Siec, which is now available from Micromech in the UK, offers PLC sequence control and different motion control functions on a single platform, compliant with the IEC 61131-3 programming standard.
Its motion-control functions range from precise positioning, control of speed and torque, to phase control as well as electronic cam profiles. The controller meets the PLCopen standard and offers a wide range of function blocks. It supports Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP and Mechatrolink-II for machines with up to 16 servo axes - for example, the rotary, linear or direct drives of the Yaskawa Sigma V and Sigma II series.
Its integrated high-speed network connection Mechatrolink-II offers effective integration of both motion and I/O functions and all models are equipped with an OPC server for easy data transfer.
In addition, the new motion controller offers the user a selection of nine optional modules with many different analogue and digital inputs and outputs, and a master encoder. A diagnostic function is available via an integrated web server, facilitating remote maintenance without specialised software.
