PACMotion modules control up to four axes plus a master axis, and up to 10 modules can be placed in a PACSystems RX3i rack for simultaneously control of up to 40 axes. Using the unique PACcore architecture, a multi-processor architecture bridged by virtual dual port memory and high speed PCI backplane, PACMotion enables consistent performance and tight axis synchronization of all axes in the rack. As an integrated motion solution, PACMotion simplifies programming by sharing a common database, eliminating complex data exchange between different programs, and reducing the learning curve required with two different programming languages, helping to boost engineering productivity.
