Motion controllers that seamlessly integrate motion control, robot control, and sequence control. Structured programming with standardized PLC programming languages simplifies program development, and contributes significantly to making software assets shareable. In addition, the easily expandable modular hardware structure makes customization with a high degree of freedom possible.
Controller with three control functions
The SANMOTION C has motion, robot, and sequence control functions, making it easy to build a variety of application systems.
Physical wiring is networked, reducing cabling
SANMOTION C is compatible with a wide range of field buses, including EtherCAT, GA1060, and CANopen. A variety of interfaces can be used with reduced wiring. This frees users from complicated wiring and greatly reduces maintenance hours.
Modular structure for both advanced software and hardware customization.
Expansion slots and modules for I/O expansion and network support are available. This modular structure makes customization with a high degree of freedom possible.
Software assets are shareable using a global standard PLC programming language
The PLC programming language IEC 61131-3, proposed by PLCopen, enables use of 5 languages; IL, LD, FBD, ST, and SFC. This improves programming efficiency and the sharing of software assets.
Integrated development tool software SANMOTION C Studio*1
We provide software with a variety of system development functions.
- Programming Tool
- Electronic Cam Editor
- Configuration Tool
- Simple HMI Tool
- Analysis and Diagnosis Tool [SCOPE]
High-speed image processing devices*1
Two types are available, the VS-AS type, which has high speed object sorting and measuring capabilities, and the VS-EV type, which offers a number of built-in functions, including positioning and component defect or shortage inspection. It is ideal for transportation and assembly applications such as parallel link robots, inspection equipment, palletizing robots, articulated robots, and production processing equipment.
Easy to operate touch panel*1
- It is easy to operate the touch panel screen by selecting from images of a wide variety of parts.
- Development time can be shortened by using the touch panel’s simulation function.
- The high resolution screen is easy to see, and provides excellent operability.
Support for system development
We conduct separate training seminars. These can be offered in a variety of formats, depending on the customer's needs. We also undertake contract system development in the form of joint development, and can help you shorten development periods and develop new products.
120 mm (H) × 55 mm (W) × 110 mm (D) ultra-compact motion controllers
Their small footprint design contribute to space-saving and system cost reduction.
Flexible system construction
The new lineup features two types: an A type which can control robots and electronic cams, and a B type which specializes in PTP motion.
It is possible to control I/O signals while performing complex multi-axis motion and robot control. This enables flexible system configurations for a variety of applications and functions.
Standard models are equipped with Ethernet, RS-485, and USB interfaces for connecting to a variety of peripherals.
It is also possible to use Modbus TCP over Ethernet. The new models also conform to the OPC-UA*4 machine-to-machine (M2M) communication standard to seamlessly connect to a variety of devices.
In addition, with the web server function, operational status can be monitored and program variables read and written using a standard PC web browser. This simplifies building systems with IoT technology.
