The new SMLC-SA single-axis motion and logic controller from Ormec
combines the company's high-performance drive technology with IEC
61131-3 programming capabilities in a single, compact, cost-effective
Ormec has expanded its networked servo drive line with the release of the SD Drive family, featuring IEEE 1394b technology. More robust, efficient, and faster than the 1394a network, the new technology defines a roadmap to 3.2 G-bit signaling, as well as definitions for additional communications media.
Motion and logic controllerOrmec’s new ServoWire Motion and Logic Controller (SMLC) combines the company’s ServoWire Soft 61131-3 programming for motion and I/O control. SMLC uses off-the-shelf components to reduce hardware costs, a real-time operating system that makes it robust, and industry standard network interfaces for a variety of connectivity options.
Ormec (Rochester, NY) ServoWire® digital drives in 25, 35, and 60 amps RMS/phase models provide power from 150 to 15ꯠ watts. Networking capability is IEEE-1394 (FireWire)-based for high speeds and cost-effective industry standard cabling.
Orion® PC-based motion controllers from Ormec (Rochester, NY) now offer Ethernet connections to Allen-Bradley PLCs that support Ethernet. The controllers can also be used for communications with PCs running popular human-machine interface software packages.
New Orion® ServoWire(TM) servo drives and PC-based digital motion controllers from Ormec (Rochester, NY) communicate at speeds to 200 megabits/sec using the IEEE-1394 network protocol, originally Apple Computer's FireWire(TM) network protocol.
Ormec's (Rochester, NY) new Orion(TM) motion controller family includes the 586/133MHz processor. This processor offers a 25% speed increase and enables Ormec customers to upgrade to a more industrial PC-based platform.
Ormec (Rochester, NY) has published a guide highlighting its line of F-Series servomotors, servodrives and power supplies. The book offers an in-depth technical discussion of the intricate design of the products, including specification and speed/torque characteristics.
Ormec (Rochester, NY) has released its Generation III product guide. It details the company's Model 20 and Model 40 motion controllers and accompanying products, in-cuding brushless servomotors and servodrives, terminals and keypads.
