Electrical Design

Our standard machine PLC and motion controls Utilize Rockwell Automation components

Unless otherwise specified we use Compact Logix L1 series processors for 2 axis of motion or less, for 3 to 4 axis of motion we use the  L2 or L3 series
Servo drives are Kinetix 350 coupled to MPF standard or optional washdown motors.
All three series utilize RS Logix 5000 which combines the PLC ladder and motion in one simple package.

The Kinetix 350 advantage

  • Integrated motion over EtherNet/IP networking
  • Simplified integration of the entire control solution on one network, including HMI,PAC,I/O and motion
  • Safe torque-off control, ISO-13849-1 Certified, Pld, category 3
  • High resolution absolute, multi-turn encoder feedback

Machine control standards

  • 230 volt; 480 volt optional
  • Single ethernet network; multiple networks optional
  • 115 volt electronics service plug
  • PanelView 600 compact HMI
  • Category 3 safety circuit
  • Built to UL standards, UL listing optional
