Motion control package lowers automation costs for packaging machinery.

The IndraMotion MLC provides real-time motion control for up to 16 axes per controller in applications such as cartoners and form/fill/seal machines. Up to 64 controllers can be networked together via cross-communication to provide precise synchronization of an entire line or core hardware component of this system is Rexroth's IndraControl L40, a compact, DIN-railmount controller that combines the advantages of embedded PC architecture with highly scalable I/O systems. In addition to 16 fast inputs and outputs, the controller base module of the IndraMotion MLC offers standardized communication interfaces such as Ethernet, PROFIBUS (master/slave), RS232, and SERCOS. The controller base modules can be expanded with additional communication interfaces or technology modules for maximum flexibility.
