Servo and Motion Bundles
By DE StaffMotion Control Machine Building
Mitsubishi packaged solutions help system integrators build budget-friendly machines.
Mitsubishi Electric Automation has introduced its Economy Solutions, packaged servo and motion bundles that allow for high precision motion control, the company says. Three different bundles are currently available: compact motion, basic motion, and pulse motion. Compact motion is available in up to 7.0 kWs, offers up to eight axes of synchronized motion per module and operates on the CC-Link IE Time-Sensitive Network (TSN). The Basic option uses the integrated networking of the iQ-F compact PLC to control servo amplifiers and motors. It operates over the CC-Link IE Field Basic network and allows the integration of other IE Field Basic compatible devices. It is best suited for small systems and supports up to 16 stations. Pulse motion operates over pulse train communication, which makes it able to communicate with almost any PLC. Also suited for smaller systems, it does not require a motion module.
