SLINFOLD, England, March 12, 2013 — Kollmorgen has expanded its Kollmorgen Automation Suite (KAS) motion control platform with the addition of a Profinet interface option.
Available from motion control specialist Heason Technology, the new field bus interface increases the communications flexibility of the system for machine builders and end users, enabling application performance. The interface is also available for existing users and is of further benefit when used with Kollmorgen’s AKD PDMM programmable servo drive because the multiaxis master-based system is integrated with KAS.
The automation platform is tailored specifically for high-performance applications where complex motion sequences and automation processes must be perfectly synchronized. KAS provides high-performance PLC and motion control functionality with choice programming environments.
Its intuitive Pipe Network graphical programming environment features drag-and-drop functionality; alternatively, KAS supports the five standard IEC 61131 programming languages for motion control as well as a PLCopen standard library with numerous motion control function blocks. The advanced control algorithms and high-speed control loops integrated into KAS make operation possible with higher bandwidth and provide greater throughput.
