Siemens SIMATIC Microbox 420-T Technology controllers: A combination of PLC and motion control functionalities.
The technology controllers in combination with the PLCopen-compatible motion control blocks are particularly well suited for coupled motion sequences of multiple axes. Along with position-controlled single axis positioning, primarily complex, synchronized motion sequences are possible, e.g. gearbox synchronization, cam disk synchronization and print-mark correction. As a result, the technology controllers can be used for a host of new applications, such as Processing lines, Throughput machines, Cross-arms, Simple gantries, Filling, Wrapping, Roll feeds, Flying shears, Carton erectors, etc.
The new SIMATIC Microbox 420-T is one such platform that is suitable for open-loop control, motion control and PC applications. It is compact, flexible, ready-to-run DIN-rail mounted PC (IP50 degree of protection) and it combines
