Turns Your Pc Into A Cnc System .
01 March 2003
Rexroth has introduced a card for standard PCs that will convert the
latter into a full-blown, multi-process CNC system. The MTC-P provide the
CNC capability on a single ISA bus card, which co-ordinates up to eight
digital drives and seven CNC processes. The unit can be upgraded to
handle up to 32 axes, using PC/104 axis processor cards, each of which
can control up to eight digital drives via a Sercos fibre optic link.
At the same time, Rexroth has added the MTS-P PC card, which provides a
high-performance PLC with 4,000 I/O per master interface. The PLC will
operate independently of the CNC, and programming is IEC 61131-3
