Aerotech Inc.'s A3200 MotionPAC is a software-based programmable logic controller (PLC) that is integrated with the company's A3200 motion controller to increase programming efficiency and decrease development time. It can be used independently for full machine control or in conjunction with AeroBasic programs, and it complies with IEC 61131-3, .NET and PLCopen. Users can program in ladder diagrams (LDs), function block diagrams (FBDs) or structured text (ST). The integrated automation reduces programming and commissioning time by 30% to 50% and is suitable for machine control program development. The tight integration with the A3200 motion controller allows users to command asynchronous, coordinated, blended, geared or cammed motion directly from LD, FBD or ST, or to directly start or stop AeroBasic programs.
