ORMEC's high performance ServoWire™ drives and XD-Indexer drives integrate on common system

Integrate SMLC and XD-Indexer on common networkThe controller network can be expanded beyond 16 ServoWire drives to more than 100.

ORMEC’s ServoWire Motion & Logic Controllers (SMLC) typically coordinate a network of ServoWire (FireWire) drives for applications where highly coordinated, high performance multi-axis motion is needed. In cases where axes are required that do not need as tightly coordinated motion, the more cost-effective XD-Indexer drive can be integrated into the SMLC system via Modbus TCP communication. Overall project costs are reduced with the ability to choose the optimal drive for the performance required on a per axis basis.

The total number of drives on a SMLC controller can be easily expanded well beyond the ServoWire limit of sixteen to more than 100.

The SMLC Controller features high performance computing capability and offers CoDeSys IEC 61131-3 programming, PLCopen motion function blocks, industrial Ethernet network solutions and FireWire-based drive networking for the most demanding multi-axis motion and I/O control applications.

ServoWire drives from ORMEC are offered in more than 14 models with on board I/O and output currents ranging from 2.5 to 60 amps. Both encoder and resolver feedbacks are available.

The XD-Indexer drives are quickly and easily programmed with table-based software. They provide 32 independent motion profiles synchronizing motion with machine I/O. This drive has fully functional indexing capabilities. The CoDeSys program in the SMLC controller uses a library of function blocks to command the indexing sequences.
