KINGSTAR Soft Motion Platform provides all the benefits of a software solution to motion control in an automatically configured EtherCAT environment with “plug-and-play” compatibility. With the highest quality and performance of pre-integrated and pre-tested motion libraries, KINGSTAR delivers motion control at half the cost of traditional hardware platforms.
Deliver Software-Only Motion Control and Positioning Systems Quickly and Affordably
KINGSTAR Soft Motion Platform is an open and standards-based, software-only solution that streamlines motion control & machine vision automation. Soft Motion runs directly on the PC, uses the NIC card for I/O, and uses the powerful EtherCAT protocol to free you from the shackles of proprietary and costly hardware. With Soft Motion, motion control and machine vision engineers can design, develop and integrate PC-based machine controllers in a “plug-and-play” environment for consolidated, inexpensive and scalable motion control and machine vision
Consolidate Robot & CNC Controllers with an All-in-One Real-Time Windows IPC for Machine Automation – Watch Video Now When it comes to machine automation, hardware costs and complexity add up fast. As your requirements expand, so does your ever-growing list of
Generally, machine velocity and positioning systems are controlled using devices like linear actuators, hydraulic pumps or electric motors, such as a servo. However, motion control utilizes special technology systems comprised of electric actuators like ac/dc servo motors. A typical motion control system includes three
PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) are mainly used in industrial and commercial applications. Industries rely on a wide range of machines that are complex to operate. Every machine has parts that are operated by motors, pneumatics or hydraulic drive systems. Sensors are
The use of machine vision for robot guidance offers new industrial operations possibilities, but also creates complex safety design challenges. This is because it is applied to machinery that operates with
Motion control is an engineering technology that is highly utilized in the industrial sector. A motion control system is any system that entails the use of moving parts in a coordinated way. Most
A PLC (programmable logic controller) is a digital computer used for industrial automation to automate different electro-mechanical processes. It was introduced to eliminate issues such as high power consumption that arose from the use of relays to control manufacturing processes. It
Traditional hardware-based motion control is an expensive and time-consuming affair. With loads of accessories, connection cables, and applications to support the devices in use, the process becomes costly and cumbersome. Industrial automation software offers a powerful alternative. With customizable options, the software approach to motion control provides the user with
Hardware motion control is quite costly and is proprietary in nature due to all the DSP boards and wiring that is required for controlling servo motors and drives. Not to mention what it takes to maintain the hardware itself. What if you could conduct superior precision motion control performance from
Machine vision processes consist of algorithms that review images and extract information, make required decisions, and run necessary inspections in real-time. Communication among machine vision systems is executed by a discrete I/O signal or data passed over a serial connection to a device that logs or uses information. The main
Advancements in real-time machine vision software allow you to conduct real-time image capture and processing for all your industrial automation needs. Integration of machine vision technology ensures improved productivity and efficiency in manufacturing facilities through reduction in turn-around-times. Here are ways in which real-time machine vision software improves industrial automation
Industrial automation software processes have reduced cost, enhanced control and made it faster to get to the market. To enjoy these and other benefits, you must purchase the best PLC software in the market. By looking at the features of a PLC, you can tell whether it will offer value
Automation of industrial processes will reduce your costs as well as provide real-time and centralized management of operations. Management of these operations is also intuitive and takes a fraction of the time to actualize. What are the latest developments in motion controller that will transform your operations?
When developing and setting up real-time motion control systems its best to plan an architecture and infrastructure the not only prepares you for today but also for tomorrow. Your real-time architecture therefore has to be flexible and malleable to external and internal changes. Here
Industrial automation is a broad topic that covers everything from digital manufacturing to simple control systems handling machines and processes, Industry 4.0 to the smart factory. It entails the use of technology and control systems to replace human mental and physical labor in the engineering and manufacturing sector. Tasks previously executed by people are
The Industry 4.0 trend seeks to change how industries conduct business by incorporating automation and easier data exchange technologies. This requires business owners to invest in resources that support these efforts, but what do those resources entail? Should you invest in machine automation, robotics, or both – and what’s the difference between them?
Industrial automation promises to reduce production costs, optimize manufacturing, improve consistency and quality of products and more. To achieve these benefits, manufacturers and industry owners must embrace it with the aim of gaining as much long-term value as possible. Manufacturers should start by determining how far they are along the automation
Automation in the manufacturing industry has evolved from the use of basic hydraulic and pneumatic systems to today’s modern robots. Most industrial operations are automated with the goal of boosting production and reducing the cost of labor. Since its
Like most of business today, industrial automation highly depends on information technology. Some of the main information technology areas used in the industrial automation context include communication and networking, control and signal processing, real-time computing, database, design, simulation, analysis, and optimization. However, industrial automation and industrial information technology are not the same thing.
We’re excited to share that the IntervalZero and KINGSTAR teams will be exhibiting at this year’s Taipei Intelligent Machinery & Manufacturing Technology Show, otherwise known as iMTduo, on May 9-12 in Taipei, Taiwan. This year’s theme is “Driving the New Wave of Manufacturing”, which fits perfectly with KINGSTAR and IntervalZero’s
Software motion control is defined as PC-based motion control that utilizes the modern x86 CPU to reduce hardware requirements.
