Other extended features of the MP2200 include: 233 MHz CPU, removable Compact Flash memory, USB serial interface, and the ability to control up to 256 axes. Accompanying the MP2200 release is MotionWorks version 6, the latest generation of the vendor’s programming software. Programs can be written in a combination of three IEC61131-3 style languages: ladder logic, structured text, and function blocks. MotionWorks includes an expansive instruction pallet providing more than 150 commands, which incorporate tag-based data, making the languages powerful, yet easy to master, says the vendor.
