Motion control systems consist of three main components: a controller, an amplifier and the motor itself. These three components must work together in harmony to ensure high performance and ease-of-use. This article will examine the latest Yaskawa product offerings in these three areas. It will show how these products work individually, and how they work together in an integrated motion control system.
This document explains how to configure AB ControlLogix 5555 PLC using RSLogix 5000 Software as an EtherNet/IP scanner with an MPiec Series Controller as an adapter. A simple example showing how to verify communication is also provided in the document. Sample code for both devices is provided
This document describes how projects and user libraries created in MotionWorks IEC Pro can be password protected. Application code developers may want to secure user libraries and/or certain custom function blocks. Security can be ensured by password protecting the POUs or function blocks in MotionWorks IEC Pro. The developer has the ability to manage the password so that it can be edited at a later stage or even unlocked for certain customers if desired
This application note describes the configurations required to set up a Pro-face AGP HMI to communicate with an MPiec motion controller. The HMI is a client and the MPiec controller is a server in this MODBUS protocol
This application note describes how to create an Ethernet connection between the MPiec series machine controllers and PanelView Plus HMIs from Rockwell. The document describes example code that has been created for MotionWorks IEC Express, KEPServer Enterprise and RSView Studio 4.0. Users can find the example files and also an eLearning Video describing the same technique at eLV.MP2000iec.01.IECtoPVPlusHMI.
This document describes the configuration required on an MPiec controller (if used as a scanner), configuration required on the scanner device (if the MPiec controller is used as an adapter) and the configuration of ports on an 1800 series Cisco router to enable EtherNet/IP communication between an MPiec controller and a third party device on a different sub network.
This application note describes a way to set up an MPiec controller to communicate with multiple VFDs serially. The set up involves a Moxa MGate MB3170 module which converts Modbus/TCP to Modbus RTU. The MPiec controller is configured to send Modbus packets to specific VFDs (slaves) which have unique slave IDs through the Moxa MGate MB3170 module which is configured as an RTU slave. The serial interface on the serial port of the MB3170 module is configured for RS-485 2-wire.
