Simple Motion Module Added to PAC Platform
The QD77MS works with the iQ Programmable Automation Controller and offers two, four or 16 input/output axes.
The module simplifies programming of complex motion profiles, reduces engineering costs and minimizes learning curves. Users with minimal programming experience in creating motion profiles can do so intuitively, thanks to the motion controller's position table and mechanical editor system. The unit also supports advanced motion functions such as cam profiles and registration, speed, position and torque control. Features include programming and setup of both PLC and motion control using a single software program-GXWorks 2; controller compatibility, assuring smooth migration to improved technology platforms using tools that offer motion project diversion and project recycling capability; drive compatibility, allowing use of either existing or newer technology servo amplifiers for actuation control. Other features include a 300 Mbps communication network that improves system response and data capacity and provides full insight into the control dynamics, with metrics such as power consumption measurable over the network; and a function block library on the two-, four- and 16-axes modules. With the connectable servo drives, users can reduce total energy consumption.
