The new MP2600iec Single Axis Controller is full of great motion features
Yaskawa’s Sigma-5 Servo series has now been enhanced with the introduction of the MP2600iec single axis motion controller. The compact controller/servo combination provides standardised programming on this high quality servo system. The MP2600iecMP2600iec represents a new level of functionality integrated into a single axis. Onboard IEC61131-3 control, digital and analogue I/O, and multiple Ethernet protocols ensure a flexible solution that can be scaled up to meet growing customer needs.

The single-axis MP2600iec rounds out the MP2000iec controller family, allowing applications to scale up from single to multi-axis control within a standard IEC61131-3 programming environment. These include MotionWorks IEC, built-in Ethernet/IP and Modbus/TCP (master and slave) connect to most PLC’s and expanded I/O. The PLCopen function blocks within MotionWorks IEC simplify programming, while a diagnostic web server reduces field maintenance time. An optional OPC server allows for HMI or data acquisition. All of these features compliment the enhanced auto-tuning and vibration suppression algorithms standard in the Sigma-5 Servo Amplifier, providing ‘IEC on the Drive’ for a wide range of applications from 50 W to 15 kW.

The MP2600iec is a feature-rich product in a small package with point to point motion, electronic gearing and cams, as well as application specific, re-usable custom function blocks. In addition there are 15 digital inputs and 11 digital outputs (sinking or sourcing) on-board, external encoder input and integrated safety circuit (STO). It incorporates multiple programming languages and application codes that can be easily re-used.

Further enhancements allow for a more flexible (modular) machine design and the built in connectivity to interface with other products makes it simple to integrate. The diagnostic web server provides the added benefit of reducing field maintenance time.
