Kollmorgen PCMM Motion Controller Meets a Broad Range of OEM Requirements
April 20, 2016—
The Kollmorgen PCMM is versatile enough for a simple one-axis machine as well as more complex machines with 100 or more axes.
Kollmorgen introduces the Programmable Controller Multi-axis Master (PCMM), a powerful new motion controller that meets a broad range of OEM requirements for a wide range of machines. The PCMM delivers complete PLC and motion control functionality in a compact, easy-to-use controller. Integrated programming, configuration screens and diagnostics in a single software package simplify and minimize setup time, resulting in faster time to market for OEMs.
The PCMM also offers superior scalability. It is versatile enough for a simple one-axis machine as well as more complex machines with 100 or more axes. The PCMM often eliminates the need for large, expensive PCs. By using a single modular/scalable controller, OEMs are also able to reduce inventory, installation and design efforts. The compact size and multi-network connectivity of the PCMM help with modularity, meaning OEMs do not have to use multiple control platforms.
Key benefits and features of Kollmorgen’s PCMM include higher performance motion and increased machine throughput, IEC 61131-3 programmable automation and motion controller, EtherCAT Master for high-performance motion and device synchronization, coordinated control of up to 128 axes and more. The PCMM is ideal for use in an array of industries including: packaging, printing, converting, material forming, general motion control, food and beverage, medical and robotics.
