PLC-based position controllers
These position controllers use a high-speed motion network to provide high precision control of 2, 4 and 16 axes to meet the growing need for fast throughput with reduced waste.
These position controllers use a high-speed motion network to provide high precision control of 2, 4 and 16 axes to meet the growing need for fast throughput with reduced waste. The position controllers pair efficiently with GN-series servo drives and G-series motors, and are compatible with a range of programmable controller platforms for a scalable solution. The motion network reduces the total cost of ownership by simplifying operation, reducing wiring, offering centralized setup and single point access monitoring and lowering the upfront hardware and software costs.
The position controllers store parameters in the module, not the CPU, to ensure fast network access without affecting the scan cycle and maintaining high throughput. The motion control bus enables individual servo drives (with Motion Network capabilities) to link to the position controller using a single cable (2-core shielded twisted pair cable) in a daisy-chain configuration rather than the more costly direct wiring of a separate controller connection for each drive. This minimizes wiring, simplifies troubleshooting and allows easy system architecture expansion to include additional axes.
