NDC8 control platform for automated guided vehicles, version 1.4, from Danaher Motion features user-friendly programming options and a high degree of flexibility and now supports up to 10 ac drives per AGV. Drives can be used for steering, driving, or auxiliary control, and ac technology is said to help increase power while reducing running costs. Industry standard OPC client provides a smooth connection to any I/O resource. Updated curve-editing tool lets each AGV layout be adapted to suit specific needs. New spline-based flexible curves allow increased vehicle speed at corners, saving floor space in tight corners.
