The MP3300iec machine controller makes automated equipment more responsive by boosting both processing speed and memory capacity, lifting both parameters to the highest levels in the motion control industry. In addition, MP3300iec has the ability to utilize Mechatrolink-III motion network and take advantage of the new version's improvements in cycle time and network connectivity. The MotionWorks IEC version 3 software is designed to make automation programming faster, easier and more effective with features including support for PLCopen Part 4, a built-in cam editor, an HMI tagging tool, an enhanced logic analyzer and long list of other improvements. The Vipa Slio system is a remote I/O solution that makes the addition of power and signal capability quicker and easier.

A capability built into the latest version of MotionWorks automatically configures Vipa Slio modules that are added to the network, relieving programmers of the tedious task of manually entering a system's I/O data into operating software. The processing speed of the MP3300iec is increased to nearly double the rate of the previous generation of processors, an improvement that is used to full advantage when paired with the added features built into MotionWorks. The result of is an improvement of 50% to 100% in network speeds.
