MotionWorks IEC

Specifications & Features

Design Features:

  • Robot Support:
    Plug-and-play configuration and control of articulated robots, gantry robots and delta robots and custom robot mechanisms.
  • Custom Kinematics:
    Allow users to create and configure their own custom robotic mechanisms, significantly simplifying the process of specifying everyday motion.
  • Standard Programming Languages:
    Programs are standardized per IEC61131-3 standard. This increases program predictability and re-usability as well as reduces error and waste of human resources.
  • Tangent Axis Following:
    Enhances the ability of automated shape cutting equipment to smoothly follow complex contours.
  • Reusable Motion Libraries:
    Draw from an extensive collection of automation logic developed by Yaskawa experts to accomplish common tasks, or import your own previously developed logic.
  • PLCopen Function Blocks:
    Yaskawa's Function Blocks are developed to comply with PLCopen standards while preserving the motion algorithms developed over decades of Yaskawa motion control expertise.
  • HMI Tagging Tool:
    Supports easy tagging of Maple Systems, VIPA, Beijer, Red Lion and EXOR HMIs.
