ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller
Model: SMLC Multi-axis Models 30, 80 & 160
ORMEC Systems Corp.Updated 03/21/2018
ORMEC’s ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller (SMLC) is at the center of a complete machine control solution that can meet all of your motion, I/O and networking needs. By combining x86 processors, IEEE 1394b FireWire drive networking and Ethernet connectivity, the SMLC is a system that can control your entire machine. This allows you to focus on your application instead of integrating control components.
The SMLC, ServoWire Drive Network, XD Indexers, Modbus/TCP and Ethernet IP provide state-of-the-art I/O and motion control (for up to 64 axes), all programmed using any of the five IEC 61131-3 standard languages including relay ladder logic.
SMLC Family of Controllers
The ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller (SMLC) family features high performance computing capability combined with a true real-time operating system (RTOS). Using the industry standard family of x86 32-bit processors running the QNX RTOS provides plenty of cost effective, robust computing power for even the most demanding multi-axis motion control and machine control applications.
The SMLC provides a multi-tiered, flexible approach to meeting machine I/O requirements. It has the ability to interface high-speed drive based I/O for microsecond position capture and single servo update response to sensor signals. It also provides sub-millisecond programmable limit switch outputs that are tightly coupled to the motion control. General purpose I/O options are fully supported using WAGO 750 Series Ethernet I/O as well as optional Profibus DP Master support. For both options, a wide variety of analog and digital I/O modules can be cost effectively connected to and controlled by the SMLC.
ServoWire Drive Network
ORMEC’s AC brushless servomotors and ServoWire digital ServoDrives offer tested and guaranteed performance with the SMLC. The result is maximum performance from a tightly integrated, pre-engineered package that simplifies everything from system integration to maintenance. Fully digital control offers compelling benefits eliminating manual ServoDrive setup and providing real-time software access to all parameters.
In an SMLC system, the position, velocity and torque loops are all closed by the digital signal processors (DSPs) in the ServoWire Drives. Position update commands are sent from the SMLC. Velocity observer software eliminates the need for analog tachometers, and potentiometers are eliminated since all gain and compensation parameters are set in software. All loop adjustments are automatically computed when a motor and its load inertia are specified in ServoWire Pro. This simplifies servo system tuning.
