Motion Controller Syncs Multiple Packaging Machines

The Rexroth IndraMotion MLC is a  controller-based motion control system. It is designed for packaging machines with centralized or distributed architectures and a maximum of 16 axes per controller.

With MLC, up to 64 controllers can be networked together via cross-communication to provide synchronization of an entire line or process. The core hardware component  consist of IndraControl L40, a compact, DIN-rail-mount controller with embedded PC architecture with scalable I/O systems.  

MLC offers standardized communication interfaces such as Ethernet, PROFIBUS (master/slave), RS232, and SERCOS. MLC is scalable, which represents the enhanced version and is differentiated by its controller-based design.
