Automation without the headaches? Absolutely! If you take motion control and automation control from the same source. Our control technology combines high-performance hardware, easily programmable software and user-friendly visualization solutions. Would you rather not have to do any programming? Not a problem. MOVI-C® comes with ready-made software modules for simple and complex control functions. All you have to do is set the parameters. Time-consuming programming is a thing of the past.
The control technology is based on a common platform for control cabinet and decentralized controllers with the same functionalities and identical interface diversity.
Whether they are used for motion control, automation control or cyber-physical control tasks, MOVI-C® CONTROLLER units can be linked to the higher-level controller of a machine cell or system using classic fieldbus slave interfaces for the PROFINET, PROFIBUS, EtherNet/IPTM or Modbus TCP fieldbus systems.
Alternatively, they can be used as independent controllers for machines or systems, in which case they take care of smooth communication via EtherCAT®/SBusPLUS with the subordinate devices – e.g. MOVIDRIVE® application inverters – and their synchronous connection to the movement/application.
The performance class of a MOVI-C® CONTROLLER depends on the number of inverters and the number of synchronous axes and auxiliary axes required and to be configured for the movement. Four performance classes for up to 32/32, 16/16, 8/8 or 2/6 axes are available. All versions have a compact design, meaning they can fit into even small machine control cabinets.
The decisive added value for reducing complexity is provided by the integrated software of the central and decentralized controllers: parameterizing instead of programming. For you as a user, this software means more scope for parameterization and less programming effort.
Our control technology and software also give you the option of writing your own programs. Would you prefer to create your own bespoke programs for your application, such as PLC functions or specific rules, so you can stand out from your competitors? If so, then our software platform has exactly what you need.
