Micro PLCs are big on motion

The original 20SSC-H module, launched in 2007 was an instant success because it gave small systems the benefits previously the exclusive domain of very sophisticated systems. Connection to the MR-J3-B (SSCNET III) range of servo amplifiers was possible using cost effective fibre-optic cable. Suddenly t high level power and precision was available for even the most modest application. Customers also benefited from standard features of the servo amplifiers such as real-time autotuning, adaptive filters and machine analysis functions. Now an upgrade to the FX3U-20SSC-H module has been launched with enhanced features. This will allow even more users to adopt advanced servo systems designs and add new capabilities to existing installations. The new version contains 13 new internal buffer memory locations, all of which can be utilised via a standard PLC program.

New features include: sudden stop selection; interpolation with different gear ratios; monitor options for current target address and current speed; detection flags for changes to positioning parameters and enhanced detection of completion flags. Many of the new features bring multiple benefits. For instance, sudden stop could be used for high speed positioning, small parts delivery, etc. The interpolation between different gear ratios will reduce programming and reprogramming effort and allows handling/sorting of irregularly sized materials. The ability to work with actual addresses also guarantees positioning and provides absolutely accurate records for production analysis, accounting and business functions.
