Motion Control Software for High Performance Controls, Drives/Motors and I/O

Aug. 30, 2006
Danaher Motion introduces version 3.04 for the Motion Programming Interface (“MPI”), an object-oriented C library for motion engineers. MPI software is an invaluable tool for System Design Engineers with a number of key features and benefits, including: An integrated, professional C library for high performance controls, drive/motors and I/O; The lowest latency command-to-motion execution, perfect for integration of real-time motion with vision or high-speed I/O; High-reliable, deterministic network master with node self-enumeration, redundant fault tolerance and event management; Complete, real-time data access to networked controls, drives and I/O; Software field connectivity into all system components for upgrade and debugging. New to MPI 3.04 is SynqNet HotReplace™. Engineers use HotReplace to increase machinery throughput by servicing machinery modules offline without process interruption. Motors, drives and I/O modules can be removed and reinstalled to the live network individually or in groups for off-line service or upgrades. MPI 3.04 extends position resolution to 64-bit. 64-bit position resolution allows for advanced control of high-resolution axes such as precision linear motors. In addition, 64-bit resolution leverages the high-resolution S200 SynqNet Digital Drive with industry-leading 800 Hz velocity bandwidth. MPI 3.04 also expands the interoperable family of SynqNet components, adding the Danaher Motion S300, S600, SqStep4 and SqDC4 amplifiers, in addition to 3rd party SynqNet products.
