Norwin, (Now KDP) were the UK distributors for the SERAD range of Motion Controllers and Intelligent Operator Terminals. These products are extremely versatile and can be incorporated into machines for a wide variety of applications such as:
The drives stocked by us are ideal for applications such as:
Pick & Place robots
The MPC combines the functions of a Motion Controller and PLC with an Industrial PC. Designed for use with the IMD range of brushless ac drives, its high speed, 100 Mbits/s, Industrial Ethernet field bus allows for fast and accurate positioning together with advanced motion control functions.
Programming is done using the standardised IEC61131-3 language with the user being able to select any of the 6 supported methods viz.:
LD – Ladder Logic
ST – Structured Text
IL – Instruction list
FBD – Function block diagram
SFS – Sequential function chart
CFC – Continuous function chart
- Fast and accurate positioningThe MPC is ideally suited to applications requiring:
Cam profiles with dynamic phase adjustment
Linear, circular and helical interpolation
Registration with 10µs window
The MCS32-EX integrates axis control and PLC functions in the same rack. Each rack has 10 slots which can accommodate up to 8 axes and 180 inputs/outputs. Multiple racks can be used to build larger systems.
The MCS32-EX is ideally suited to applications such as:
Linear and circular interpolation
Multi-tasking operation with up to 28 tasks.
Basic programming language.
Graphical ladder programming.
Windows ® 95/98/NT programming environment with powerful debugger, Basic and Ladder editors, 6 channel oscilloscope, on-line help.
The SUPERVISOR 80 and the SUPERVISOR 640 are intelligent operator terminals that are capable of completely managing the operation of an automated machine.
Using their serial link or fieldbus ports they can communicate with the various elements of an automated system, such as intelligent drives, distributed I/O, PLC, PC, etc.
An optional internal I/O module having 12 inputs and 8 outputs can be fitted, which for many smaller systems is all that is required. If more I/O points are required then it is a simple matter to add one or more CANopen I/O modules.
Easy to program, using the Windows® based application SPL, they have a true multi-tasking core, RAM and FLASH memory, a real-time clock and up to three serial ports (RS232 , RS485 , CANopen).
The SUPERVISOR operator panels are open systems that are adaptable for all applications that comprise an HMI, PLC, and serial communication.
