Courtesy: Mitsubishi ElectricMitsubishi Electric Automation's Q170MCPU-EIP motion controller allows end users to operate their existing third-party control systems that incorporate Add-On-Instructions (AOI). Mitsubishi Electric created an AOI library with a set of motion instructions to improve the functionality of third-party design and configuration software. These instructions allow users to quickly and easily upgrade to a Mitsubishi Electric servo system via Ethernet/IP. 

The Q170MCPU-EIP also allows users to create positioning applications within their existing programming environment. The motion controller is ideal for applications where end-user specifications require a third-party PLC and up to eight axes of servo control. Specific applications that are suited for the Q170MCPU-EIP motion controller include filling, case packing, conveyors, and assembly.
