Aerotech Integrated Machine Control: PLC, Motion Control, Fieldbus, I/O and Operator Interface

Overview

Aerotech's A3200 MotionPAC is a software-based Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) that is completely integrated with Aerotech's A3200 motion controller to increase programming efficiency, decrease development time and to increase quality. The MotionPAC can be used independently for full machine control or in conjunction with AeroBasicâ„¢ programs, and complies with IEC 61131-3 and PLCopen. Users can program in Ladder Diagrams (LD), Function Block Diagrams (FBD) or Structured Text (ST). The MotionPAC's Integrated Automation will reduce programming and commissioning time by 30% to 50% and is ideal for machine control program development.
