Motion controllers utilize the advanced processing capabilities of a PLC to provide extremely accurate motion control. Able to control simple single-axis applications or sophisticated multi-axis coordinated movements, motion controllers come in a variety of capabilities and I/O configurations.
Productivity PLCs are known for their extreme versatility and numerous convenience features and with ProductivityMotion products, you can easily add motion control to your Productivity system that's as simple or sophisticated as you need.
Productivity high-speed input and output modules are a great option for basic motion control applications. Able to perform simple motion commands like homing routines and preset tables, these modules slide right into any open slot in any local or remote rack of a Productivity PLC system. High-speed counter and PWM modules are also available for high-speed or pulsed I/O applications.
Available in one to four axes models, the PS-AMC motion controller provides highly accurate positioning using encoder-fed control and is ideal for applications requiring several independent axes of motion and/or coordinated motion between some or all axes. Used in conjunction with select Productivity CPUs and programmed with the FREE Productivity Suite software, the AMC can supply up to 1MHz pulse-train command signals to servo or stepper drives for extremely responsive movements.
BRX PLCs offer one of the most advanced instruction sets in the market and include many tools to tackle complex applications. Most BRX PLC units come with high-speed I/O built in and those that don't can easily add high-speed I/O with the addition of HSIO expansion modules. BRX on-board high-speed I/O provides up to 3 coordinated axes of motion with additional virtual axes for internal control and following applications.
BRX HSIO expansion modules can provide 250kHz or 2MHz high-speed I/O points with single-ended or differential configurations. Up to 4 coordinated axes of motion are possible on each HSIO module with up to 6 HSIO modules in a local rack.
