What’s the most important part of a motion control system? While the motor and the drive are certainly essential to servo control, a strong argument could be made for the control itself. The control is responsible for sending information to the drive, as well as receiving and analyzing the feedback information. Basically, the control is the intelligent part of the motion control system.
There are a few different types of controllers that you could be using with your Indramat system. Here’s a brief look at Indramat PPC Controls.
One of the main things to know about PPC Controls is that they are Sercos based. Sercos, which was created n 1987, is an acronym for “serial real-time communication system.” It allows for standardized communication among controls, drives, and output devices. Needless to say, this is extremely beneficial for servo control.
The PPC Control can be used with VisualMotion or Synax. Your drive may determine which one is right for you. It’s also worth noting that Indramat PPC Control is a freestanding controller.
This control is well-suited for systems carrying out fairly complex motion control tasks as well as basic robotics.
While you may enjoy learning a little bit about PPC Controllers, there’s a high probability that you found this page looking for some assistance with your controller or servo control system. Well, you’ve come to the right place.
Your Indramat motion control system has been running strong since the days when Indramat still existed. It’s probably time for that system to get a little TLC. We specialize in Indramat repair, reman, and maintenance. Of course, if your control is fried and it’s time for a replacement, we can help you out in that category as well.
Every second of downtime costs you and your business money, so don’t delay. Give us a call at 479-422-0390 for immediate assistance.
