Simple operation thanks to the software platform and pre-tested MOVIKIT® single and multi-axis modules. Simplification of the installation process with hybrid cables and industrial plug connectors.
Quick replacement of the lower-level drive components by means of integrated data management and an auto-reload function.
The housing’s high degree of protection enables automation solutions to be realized without the need for an additional control cabinet.
Reduction of the capacity utilization of higher-level fieldbus networks. Reduction of system complexity thanks to the modular design of the entire system.
Systematic detection of the drive and automation technology’s condition thanks to condition monitoring.
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.
