A wide range of fieldbus interfaces enables simple integration in any controls concept.
Connection to an upper-level controller can be made via analog, digital, or serial interfaces, fieldbuses, or ETHERNET. The wide range of fieldbus interfaces and protocols makes LinMot servo drives easy to integrate with any controller, whether a PLC, and industrial PC, or a proprietary controller.
LinMot provides customers with extensive functional building blocks and example programs to support trouble-free integration. The functional building blocks can be used to execute functions such as drive parameterization and configuration directly from the controller, in addition to standard motion commands. Complete drive configuration of the associated axis is thus saved in the controller. In case of service or replacement, this makes it possible to automatically detect and parameterize the drive via the bus. This eliminates the need for time-consuming manual configuration of the drives in case of a fault.
Profinet drives were developed for use with Siemens controllers. Profinet drives are available with RT and IRT for point-to-point or NC applications with the PROFIdrive profile:
Profibus drives were developed for use with Siemens controllers. For new applications, the use of ProfiNet is recommended.
EtherCAT drives were developed for use with controllers from various manufacturers who offer this standardized bus.
Ethernet IP drives were developed for use with Rockwell controllers. LinMot is an official Rockwell Encompass Partner and bus compatibility is ODVA certified.
DeviceNet drives were developed for use with Rockwell controllers. For new applications, the use of Ethernet IP is recommended. LinMot is an official Rockwell Encompass Partner.
Sercos III drives were developed for use with controllers from various manufacturers who offer this standardized drive bus.
Powerlink drives were developed for use with B&R controllers.
LinUDP was developed for controlling LinMot drives via a PC Ethernet interface. This allows them to be easily integrated in LabView, Visual Basic, Excel, and other Windows-based programs.
CANopen drives were developed for use with various controllers that offer this standardized and prevalent bus.
LinRS was developed for controlling LinMot drives via RS232 or RS485 interfaces. This allows them to be easily integrated in LabView, Visual Basic, Excel, and other Windows-based programs. As an alternative, Ethernet drives with LinUDP are available for new applications.
The Pharmaceutical sector is considered as one of the most demanding sectors in the industrial field. Machine designers and builders must consider and respect many rules and standards and should mandatorily apply the cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices). These rules and guidelines become more restricted when the machine is handling aseptic medicine, such as Ophthalmic Drops.
Filling and closure processes can be implemented dynamically and flexibly with linear rotary direct motors. That›s why noted packaging machine manufacturer OPTIMA uses them in the closure units for its monoblock and free-standing machines. Another important reason is that the motors directly provide data on the actual stroke and torque values generated for ongoing quality assurance or subsequent process analysis.
