Fast and flexible motion control software development

Elmo Motion Control’s Platinum series advanced servo drives feature EtherCAT networking for ultra-fast machine synchronised single and multi-axis motion, and high levels of functional safety. With full support from Elmo’s UK distribution partner, Heason Technology, these drives are now available with Elmo’s free-to-use Motion Composer2 tool allowing machine designers to easily develop, test and implement user-specific motion and machine control algorithms as drive level SIL (Software in the Loop) commands.

Integrated as a module within MathWorks Simulink Real Time Workshop, Motion Composer2 features an assortment of servo performance, motion profiling, communications, and robot kinematics-based library blocks that are assembled, cross-compiled and downloaded to the Platinum drive. Enabling rapid time to market with fast performance-optimised algorithm development, individual library blocks are easily modified with comprehensive evaluation and system level simulation aided by ELMO’s EASII Application Studio.

The integration with the Real Time Workshop allows access to measurement devices such as inertial sensors, gyros and IMUs as well as a host of machine control I/O devices, hardware components, and sub-systems from a wide range of manufacturers. Users can develop their preferred communication protocols over serial links in real-time and kinematic transformations are easily designed and implemented.
