MOVI‑C® FIELD CONTROLLER

  • MOVI-C® FIELD CONTROLLER

    Support from the field – decentralized motion control

Based on the MOVI‑C® modular automation system, a decentralized controller – the MOVI‑C® FIELD CONTROLLER – has also been developed for decentralized drive technology. This solution features the same functions and interfaces as the MOVI‑C® CONTROLLER, making it a consistent addition to the portfolio.

MOVI-C® FIELD CONTROLLER

The MOVI‑C® FIELD CONTROLLER consists of a decentralized controller and a connection box with field distributor function.

It can be operated on virtually all standard industrial fieldbus systems (PROFINET, EtherNet/IPTM, Modbus TCP). As an EtherCAT®/SBusPLUS master, the MOVI‑C® FIELD CONTROLLER controls drive axes in the DSI communication variant and other EtherCAT® stations.

The housing's high degree of protection ensures the controller can be flexibly used in the field – without needing an additional control cabinet. When using hybrid cables, the cabling outlay for the lower-level drive axes can also be minimized and costs thereby reduced. Up to 16 drive axes can be controlled and, thanks to optimized startup and diagnostics, the level of engineering work involved is reduced.
