New Product Announcement: ProductivityMotion – 1, 2, 3 & 4 Axes Motion Controllers For Productivity Series PLCs

PS-AMC motion controllers have been added to the Productivity range of PLCs. Designed to work seamlessly with selected CPUs, they provide accurate, coordinated, plug-and-play motion control. The controllers are capable of up to 4 coordinated axes of motion per controller (PS-AMC4) with differential encoder feedback for each axis and a maximum switching frequency of 1MHz. Up to 24 general-purpose high-speed inputs and 12 general-purpose high-speed outputs are also included.

Available in 1, 2, 3, or 4 axis models, AMC controllers are auto-discovered in the Productivity Suite programming software, which has numerous built-in motion instructions allowing for easy configuration of standard motion profiles, including flying cut-offs and rotary tables.

The ProductivityMotion modules are compatible with Productivity Series CPUs that have a remote i/o port, such as the P1-550 & P2-550 or P3-550.

Application Examples:

  • Flying cut-off systems
  • Press feeds
  • In-line bottle filling
  • Auger fillers
  • Label applicators
  • Smart conveyor systems (random timing infeeds)
  • Rotary tables
  • Vertical-form-fill-seal
  • Case erectors/packers
  • Cut to length systems
  • High-speed mail sorting
  • WebFilm handling
  • Boring/drilling/tapping
  • Coil winding
  • Wrapping
  • Thermo-formers
  • Rotary knives
  • And many more…
