Motion controller MP2310iec features modular expansion
April 30, 2012 Leave a comment
Yaskawa’s universal standard motion controller MP2310iec, now available from Micromech, features three additional free slots for option modules. Used in conjunction with sophisticated multitasking functions this enables the module to control and monitor complex operations in a diverse automation environment.
For example, the motion controller can be equipped with communication modules for super-ordinate control units (Siemens) or for various bus systems. It can also be expanded using additional counter, I/O or positioning modules.
There are presently on offer nine different option modules. The motion controller programming is based on the international IEC61131-3 standard, so that all automation functions planned and programmed on this basis are interchangeable.
Pre-programmed software components from standard libraries help to shorten the time required for planning and putting (it) into operation. Together with its MotionWorks IEC design environment Yaskawa is providing a large number of PLCopen building blocks that ease efficient and standards-based planning and programming.
The MP2310iec is available in 4, 8, and 16 axes all comprising EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP and web server diagnostics. Users can select from up to three of 8 local I/O modules for the three open slots, and expanded I/O can be attained through EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP, and/or the Yaskawa MECHATROLINK-II network I/O modules from third parties.
Typical applications for this controller are random rotary placer, rotary table indexer, conveyor, winder, screw feeder, extrusion and precision grinder.
