Motion control – Understanding what moves you

Control systems which will drive your application forward

Motion control – Understanding what moves you

Are you looking for a flexible solution for your automation task? Then Pilz motion control systems are exactly what you need! Whether you need to synchronise multiple axes, single-axis solutions or safe drive solutions: we have the right motion control solution for your application.

With our solutions you can create your complete user program under IEC 61131-3 in a single project: from standard PLC functionality to motion control and CNC functions. This allows you to implement the widest range of complex tasks quickly and simply.

Flexible to use, quick to commission

Benefit from short commissioning times – thanks to programming with Soft PLC in accordance with IEC 61131. The PMCprimo Master and Slave also support a number of communication interfaces such as Modbus TCP, CAN or PROFIBUS DP-S, for example. Enjoy the flexibility of the motion control system for a wide range of application areas!


New: Motion control systems PMCprimo with EtherCAT Master and Version 3.5 of the PLC

The motion control system PMCprimo MC (stand-alone) and motion control card PMCprimo C (drive-based) now enable even higher performance and therefore increased productivity and process quality.

This is how you benefit from an upgrade to Version 3.5

The upgrade to version 3.5 of PLC means you now have access to all the benefits of object-oriented programming. Thanks to the integrated real-time task (processing time: 1 ms), you can also implement high-performance applications such as path interpolations. The clearer interface structure offers a much wider range of options in online mode, simplifying plant commissioning.

Now with real-time Ethernet

PMCprimo now has the real-time Ethernet EtherCAT Master. PMCprimo also continues to support the classic Master/Slave communication interfaces, such as I/O interfaces.

Motion control systems PMCprimo

Operator terminals PMI 6 primo – With PLC, motion and CNC functionality

PMI 607 primo

Operator terminals PMI 6 primo have PLC, motion and CNC functionality. Within your plant, they perform the automation including motion management. You can link up to 32 axes flexibly to form a kind of electronic main shaft. In addition to simple CNC tasks, the functions of "flying saw", "cross cutter" or "cam disc function" can easily be implemented using the control systems.

The PMI 6 primo touchscreens are available in 7, 12 or 15 inches. The powerful processor and memory equipment results in a powerful platform for your automation tasks.

High performance and flexibility with PMCprimo

  • Can be expanded at any time thanks to the modular design, in combination with the PMCprotego D servo amplifiers
  • Open for integration in the existing control architecture, thanks to a wide range of different communications interfaces
  • Fast to commission and simple to service thanks to universal programming in accordance with IEC 61131-3
  • Extremely versatile (from simple to complex applications)
  • Increased production quality and high cycle counts thanks to higher performance
  • Large disk space for implementing more complex applications
  • Compact solution as PMCprimo includes PLC and motion functionality
