When you think of automation and control technology, do you automatically imagine a whole lot of complex work for commissioning and then running production operations? It doesn't have to be like that – there is certainly an easier way. Parameterizing instead of programming – tailoring motion control functionality and intelligent control technology to your needs. It's a solution that ensures everything – automation technology, software and control technology – slots into place.
Control technology made by SEW EURODRIVE: MOVI-C® CONTROLLER
Whether they are used to regulate motion control or for automation , MOVI-C ® CONTROLLER units are linked up to the overarching control system of a machine cell or system using classic fieldbus slave interfaces for the PROFINET, PROFIBUS, EtherNet/IP TM or Modbus TCP fieldbus systems. They then ensure uninterrupted communication with lower-level devices such as MOVIDRIVE ® application inverters and their synchronous connection to the motion/application.
The performance class of a MOVI-C ® CONTROLLER is based on the number of inverters and the number of synchronous axes and auxiliary axes that are required for the motion and need to be configured. Four performance classes for 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.
However, the added value that really counts when it comes to reducing complexity comes from the integrated software of the MOVI-C ® CONTROLLER – parameterization instead of programming. This software gives you, as a user, more freedom to customize parameters while reducing your outlay on programming. It's all down to the MOVIRUN ® software platform and the standardized modules of the MOVIKIT ® modular software kit , which combine to simplify processes and save time and money.
Other advantages offered by our control technology include simple, central data storage and an auto-reload function for axis replacement, all of which help ensure the automation technology in your production systems exhibits a consistently high standard of reliability and availability.
The MOVI-C ® CONTROLLER provides added flexibility for parameterization and reduces programming outlay. It's all thanks to the ready-standardized MOVIKIT ® modules and MOVIRUN ® software platform – and the end results are lower costs and less complexity. The control technology is available in four different performance classes – power, progressive, advanced and standard. You also benefit from simple data storage and an auto-reload function for axis replacement. MOVI-C ® CONTROLLER units can be connected to all standard control systems.
Enjoy more flexibility
Our control technology and software also give you the option of writing your own programming. 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.
