For decentralised motion control: Drive-based automation
With compact machines and machine modules, decentralised motion control allows the load on the machine control system to be dramatically reduced or even eliminated altogether.
The Inverter Drives 8400 and 9400 in particular are capable of taking over decentralised control responsibilities. And the I/O-System 1000 can be incorporated into the system to evaluate the control signals. An end-to-end network can also be established, for example using EtherCAT or CANopen. This includes the scalable visualisation concept using the HMIs from the EL100 product range and VisiWinNET® software. The overall system can also be rounded off here with our range of motors and gearboxes.
