Yaskawa Electric has released the MP2200 machine controller and its companion product, MotionWorks™ version 6 programming software.
Like all controllers in the MP2000 line, the MP2200 synchronizes sequence control and motion control in a tightly integrated platform. The MP2200 also expands on the line’s capabilities by offering a larger, more configurable rack system with 9 slots. Other extended features include 233 MHz CPU, removable compact flash memory, USB serial interface, and the ability to control as many as 256 axes. The accompanying software, MotionWorks version 6, is a programming platform aimed at empowering engineers with necessary tools. Programs may be written in any combination of 3 IEC61131-3 style languages: ladder logic, structured text, and function blocks. The expansive instruction pallet provides more than 150 commands, which incorporate tag-based data.
