Easily-Programmable Motion Control
The Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America (Waukegan, IL) has released the MP2600iec motion controller, which provides motion control of 1 or 1.5 axis along with machine control. The machine controller supports all five IEC61131-3 programming languages: Ladder Diagram, Function Block, Structures Text, Sequential Function Chart, and Instruction List. The pre-programmed blocks provide all of the standard functionality required for most motion control applications, eliminating the need for custom programming. Other features include:
- The ability to monitor via 15 discrete inputs, 11 discrete outputs, one analog input, and one output.
- The ability to interface with automation, monitoring, and control systems via discrete I/O, EtherNet/IP, and Modbus/TCP digital networks.
- An optional OPC server that allows for the transfer of real time data from the machine process to the factory network.
