Motion and Logic Controllers Interface with High-Speed, Drive-based I/O
ORMEC Systems Corporation’s ServoWire Motion and Logic Controller (SMLC) family has expanded to four available models, designed to provide fully integrated and centralized machinery motion, I/O and networking control. The devices are suited for a variety of packaging, material handling, medical, pharmaceutical, and general assembly applications. Available in three-, eight-, 16- and 24-axis models, the SMLC family offers both motion control and PLC functions within a single package. With desirable computing capability and a true real-time operating system, powered by Intel 32-bit processors, the SMLC is able to provide computing power for demanding multi-axis motion and I/O control applications. To facilitate a multi-tiered, flexible approach to machinery I/O applications, the SMLC family is able to interface with high-speed drive-based I/O, for microsecond position capture, and offer single servo update response to sensor signals. It also provides sub-millisecond programmable limit switch outputs, tightly coupled to the motion control.
