Yaskawa expanded its scalable MP2000iec machine control system with the MP2600iec motion module. This module is an IEC 61131-3 controller with PLCopen Motion function blocks for 1.5 axis applications.

The 1.5 axis controller is suitable for stand-alone machine subsystems in modular mechatronics machine architectures, the company said. Since motion control functions, PLC and drive regulation are integrated in one PCB, it is possible to automate entire machine subsystems. 

The MP2600iec 1.5 axis controller complements the MP2000iec controller line which is preferentially used in multi-axis applications. MP2600iec offers advantages in 1.5 axis applications such as coilers, cross cutters, flying saws or imprint/register controls, labeling and cam disks. The machine subsystem that is automated using the MP2600iec Motion Module receives its guide value from a master encoder and synchronizes its slave axis to this guide value. Due to modular design, the machine subsystems can be tested and commissioned individually.

The MP2600iec Motion Module supports communication via EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, OPC server and web browsers. On top of its master encoder input, the module contains eight digital inputs, eight digital outputs, one analog input and one analogue output. All integrated inputs and outputs are freely programmable.

The MP2600iec Motion Module has specifically been designed for deployment with Yaskawa high-performance Σ-V (Sigma-5 series) servo drives. The module features plug-in installation in the servo drive and reportedly offers all the benefits of IEC 61131-1 standard and PLCopen Motion based control.

The MP2600iec Motion Module is suitable for 1.5 axis applications in packaging, printing, metal, plastics and textile processing and handling.
