Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s Q170MCPU-EIP motion controller enables users to operate existing third-party control systems while leveraging one of the company’s servo-motion systems. It works with third-party systems that incorporate add-on instructions (AOI), and the company has created an AOI library with a set of motion instructions that improve the functionality of the third-party design and configuration software. Users can create positioning applications within their existing programming environment while controlling the Mitsubishi Electric Automation MR-J3 and MR-J4 servo platforms via Ethernet/IP. The controller is suitable for applications where end-user specifications require a third-party PLC and as many as eight axes of servo control, such as Cartesian pick-and-place, cut-to-length and assembly applications.
