SMLC PROVIDES REDUCED COST, SINGLE BOX SOLUTION FOR ENTIRE MACHINES, REPLACING PLC + MOTION CONTROLLER SYSTEMS
 
OEMs can reduce costs, installation time and system size by replacing combinations of proprietary motion controllers and PLCs with a single ORMEC SLMC (ServoWire Motion and Logic Controller). Launched by Inmoco into the UK market, the SMLC provides cost effective integrated motion solutions from one to sixteen axes. Offering a small installation footprint, and providing advanced features such as Pentium 32-bit processors, IEEE 1394b FireWire networking and Ethernet connectivity, the SMLC is a system that can control an entire machine.
 

The SMLC product family offers models with 1,3 8 and 16 axes of control, all of which provide a single box solution. They combine ORMEC Soft Motion technology with all five IEC 61131-3 programming languages, PLCopen motion function blocks, and industry standard protocols for I/O and network connectivity, into a powerful, compact control package that reduces wiring complexity, panel space requirements, and programming effort.
 
Developing systems from one to sixteen axes with the SMLC is seamless as a result of combining the CoDeSys Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and runtime engine with ORMEC’s ServoWire Pro development and commissioning tools. The CoDeSys IDE and runtime engine are robust, fully featured tools with extensive diagnostic capabilities. They are world- class IEC-61131-3 tools that offer the added benefit of being used in hundreds of products worldwide. Complementing the CoDeSys system, ServoWire Pro is an easy to use, integrated suite of configuration, diagnostic and maintenance utilities to assist in the commissioning of the drive.
 
 In addition to offering excellent levels of functionality and flexibility, the SLMC controllers are designed to be highly reliable in operation. Their rugged industrial hardware features an all metal-enclosure; and their efficient design means that they require no fans for cooling. In addition, all SMLC models integrate well-proven Intel 32-bit processors running the reliable and robust QNX real-time operating system (RTOS).                                                                                          
 
The SMLC offers a wide range of interfacing capabilities with two Ethernet ports and three or four serial ports. It is complemented by a complete line of networked Ethernet-based I/O expansion modules, which can handle thousands of I/O points, and also offers optional Profibus DP Master support. In addition, touchscreen HMI and factory networking support is provided via built-in Modbus/TCP as well as via the free OPC server.
