Motion control systems PMCprimo

Control systems for simple to high end applications

Motion control systems PMCprimo

The PMCprimo control systems have PLC and motion functionality. They perform the automation within a plant, including motion management. This is possible for a large number of servo axes.

PMCprimo is a byword for high performance and flexibility. Up to 32 axes can be linked flexibly to form a kind of electronic main shaft, and simple CNC tasks can be solved. Standard functions, e.g. "flying saw", "cross cutter" or "cam plate functions", are already stored as function blocks. Machine functions, such as "tubular pouch packaging", are also available. The implementation of modern functions, such as remote maintenance, automatic parameter setting for swapped-out system components and the sharing of all I/Os, allows you to implement high-performance solutions with high availability.

New: Motion control systems PMCprimo C2 – now with even higher performance

The powerful motion control systems PMCprimo C2 have PLC, motion control and CNC functionality and they support you when implementing your complete control tasks. The high-performance PMCprimo C2 with 1.3 GHz processor and FPGA enable hight productivity and process quality. Benefit from short commissioning times thanks to programming by soft PLC in accordance with IEC 61131!

The USB interface guarantees simple data import and export. With PMCprimo C2 an EtherCAT Master interface is provided. In addition, PMCprimo C2 supports master and slave communication interfaces such as Modbus/TCP, CAN or PROFIBUS-DP-S. The control systems also allow parallel operation of several communication networks (EtherCAT/CANopen).

Choose according to your requirements:

Safe-drive-based: PMCprimo DriveP

With the safe-drive-based motion control solution, the motion control system is integrated in the servo amplifier as an option card. Further servo amplifiers can be connected easily via the drive bus. PMCprimo DriveP provides a compact, top-performance solution for your application!

Furthermore, this solution can be easily expanded by the addition of drive-integrated safety functions: using the PMCprotego S safety card. The safe motion, stop, and brake functions ensure reduced set-up times and maintenance requirements and costs. Motion control, PLC and safety functions are combined in the device.

Controller-based: PMCprimo MC

As a central solution, PMCprimo MC with its controller-based hardware platform forms the basis for an open system. Thanks to the various interfaces of the controller, PMCprimo MC is the right choice even for comprehensive applications! The high processing power makes short cycle times possible even with complex application programs. It provides an optimum solution for demanding machine processes.
