An engineering tool that guarantees continuous software compatibility is available for programming the three control concepts with PROPROGwt II in accordance with the IEC 61131 standard, whereby it does not matter which hardware the application was originally developed for.
Baumüller developed a new software for drive dimensioning. The user can dimension up to six drives with sizemaXX
Machines and systems are increasingly built on a modular
basis, allowing the use of centralized, decentralized, and hybrid automation
concepts. Manufacturing processes that operate with continuous rapid cycles
(such as the web processing of paper, foils, or textiles) represent
particular challenges to the real-time capability of drive, control, and
With its b maXX-drivePLC, b maXX-controller PLC, and b maXX-softPLC controls and its b maXX HMI solutions - from the text-oriented terminal to the touch panel – Baumüller supports decentralized, centralized, and hybrid control architectures – based on the requirements of the application.
The Motion Control concept from
Baumüller puts the main focus on the user’s manufacturing process. Machine
functions can be planned without functional knowledge of the system using
Motion Control modules that comply with PLCopen and the IEC 61131
This gives machine constructors the freedom to use their core competency more effectively for the further development of machine concepts. The amount of engineering that is required for the automation and drive system is minimized.
The Baumüller Motion Control concept
Baumüller’s Motion Control concept reduces the complexity and the development cost of automation software in mechanical engineering. It puts the main focus on the user’s processes and machine functionality. This concept allows the machine manufacturer to concentrate on machine-specific future technologies and the continuous further development of their machine functionality in the software – and increasing the manufacturer’s competitive edge.
The planning of Single Axis and Multi Axis functionality in accordance with “PLCopen Motion Control” is only carried out using the relevant function module libraries from a technological point of view
