New universal Motion-Controller MC800 with an integrated tandem drive-controller, flexible input configuration for sensors and adaptive interface structure. With firmware CT803 suitable for rotating processes.
The Multi-Axes-Motion-Controller MC800, a successor of the proven MC700, is convincing by its higher bandwidth and a more flexible bus architecture. A special feature of the MC800 is the integrated tandem drive-controller. This enables to reach the acceleration requirements of heavy loads by splitting the necessary power to two independent drives.
Suitable for incremental encoders or sensors with RS422 output or 10 to 30 V HTL output (differential signals A, /A, B, /B)
Freely combined with standard SinCos sensors or SinCos encoders with 1 Vpp (format sin+, sin-, cos+, cos-)
Four fast interrupt based HTL NPN/PNP inputs for control commands
Two 14 bit analogue inputs with ±10 V, as well as two similar analogue outputs
MC700 is a universal motion controller for 1 to 4 axis, programmable for multiple motion applications by simple download of the corresponding function firmware.
With use of the CT703 firmware (see SUPPORT) this unit provides excellent solutions with all kinds of rotating cut-to-length systems as well as with applications like rotary labeling, printing, punching, sealing etc.
Functions and properties are very similar to the CT340 controllers described below.
The range of functions includes extended possibilities with evaluation and blanking of print marks, floating print mark registers and more
The MC700 hardware is a black-box unit for cabinet mounting.
Remote control and communication facilities via external operator terminal, serial PC communication, CANBUS, PROFIBUS etc. (see also Accessories)
New stand-alone precision controller for the specific motion profile of rotative cutting or printing rolls, e.g. for cut-to length or intermittent printing of paper, corrugated board and synthetic materials
Also most suitable for smaller machines with limited budget, due to a very competitive price
Speed profile with synchronous operation during tool engagement and asynchronous speed while the tool is free, automatically optimized to the actual length setting
Self-optimizing polynomial speed profile to ensure extremely smooth motion and gentle tool treatment for best service life
High accuracy and repeatability, even with high line speeds, due to a 300 kHz frequency range of the incremental encoder inputs
Continuous closed-loop position control with only 250 µsec of cycle time, therefore outstanding dynamic features and high precision even during changes of the line speed
Suitable for operation with all 4-quadrant drives providing a +/- 10V speed input
Instantly ready for use, with easy setup and commissioning via Windows PC software (freeware), resulting in successful machine operation within shortest time
The controller can be operated by means of control keys or thumbwheel switches on the front side, as well as by remote operation terminals or by serial link
Direct PROFIBUS access is possible with use of gateway model PB251
