The SMLC-15 single axis controller combines ORMEC’s high-performance drive technology, ORMEC’s powerful motion technology and outstanding PLC capabilities of the SMLC together with the IEC 61131-3 programming flexibility into a single, compact, cost-effective package.
- High Performance x86 processor
- Motion and PLC functions in one cost effective package
- Single axis model
- IEEE 1394b ServoWire (FireWire) digital network
- IEC 61131-3 all 5 standard languages
- Modbus/TCP communications
- QNX RTOS – real time operating system
- UL/CE marked
- RoHS compliant
- Locking 1394 connectors
- Application Specific Function Block software for common applications
- Customisable for OEM applications
Standard PLCopen motion control function blocks reduce your software development costs and powerful ORMEC extensions make solving your toughest motion applications a snip. Application-specific function blocks such as Reciprocating Flying Shear, Rotary Knife and many others are available to provide solutions right out of the box.
The SMLC-15 uses the same development and commissioning tools as the SMLC product line. The CoDeSys Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and runtime engine are world class IEC 61131-3 tools used in hundreds of products worldwide. These are robust, full-featured tools with extensive diagnostic capabilities. The SMLC platform supports all five of the IEC 61131-3 program languages, including:
- Relay Ladder Logic
- Function Block Diagram
- Structured Text
- Instruction List
- Sequential Function Chart
ServoWire Pro is an easy to use, integrated suite of configuration, diagnostic and maintenance utilities to assist in the commissioning of the drive. In addition to built-in I/O, there is a complete line of networked I/O expansion modules available based on Ethernet that can handle thousands of I/O points. HMI and factory networking support is provided via built-in Modbus/TCP, Ethernet/IP adapter as well as via the free OPC server.
Using an SMLC-15 with XD Drives
An SMLC-15 can be connected via Ethernet to up to 48 XD Series Indexers as a very cost effective solution to multi-axis systems that require limited synchronisation between the axes. In this configuration, communication to the drives is done using Modbus/TCP function blocks. An application specific library for the SMLC simplifies this process for the user.
