Motion Control

One of the fastest growing aspects of automation is multi-axis motion control.  Automation processes such as printing machines, CNC machines, lathes and textile manufacturing systems can run faster, more accurately and more reliably than conventional systems using mechanical gears.

The main automation trend is towards greater numbers of axes of control and increasingly sophisticated control strategies. Proprietary solutions have been favoured, but openness is now seen as an overriding advantage.

Hence PROFIdrive - an open Motion Control solution that can be used with both PROFIBUS and PROFINET.

PROFIBUS is a standardized, open, digital communications system for all areas of application in manufacturing and process automation.

PROFINET is the innovative open standard for Industrial Ethernet. It satisfies all requirements of automation technology..

IO-LINK is an independent sensor / actuator interface solution for use with PROFIBUS and PROFINET.
