Ormec releases motion, logic, HMI, networking for 1-3 ½ axes
Ormec reports that its new SMLC-Lite is a cost-effective motion, logic, human-machine interface (HMI), and networking solution for 1- to 3 ½-axes systems. SMLC-Lite reportedly reduces system costs, and reduces complexity by using off-the-shelf components, IEC 61131-3 languages, and motion software.
