IMAC Visual Multi-Axis and Automation Controller
LINK TO IMAC ON-LINE MANUAL
- Multi-axis (up to 32 axes) motion control over distributed INET® network
- Digital and Analog I/O handling over INET® network
- Simple and Visual creation of complex machine operational sequences
- No programming experience necessary, just lay IBLOCKS™ in sequence
- Graphical HMI Designer
INTELLIDRIVES MULTI-AXIS MOTION and AUTOMATION CONTROLLER is a network-based general purpose motion/automation controller with embedded intuitive IBLOCK® programming capability.
IBLOCK® visual block programming environment runs in the web browser on any hardware and software platforms.
IBLOCK® uses functional blocks linked together to create complex multi-axis motion control sequences of different motor types interacting with digital and analog I/O and vision systems.
IBLOCK Visual Editor uses graphical blocks to represent motion commands, control of the input/output devices, variables, logic expressions, math, loops and more without having to worry about complexities of the programming languages.
IMAC controls network of Digital Stepper and Servo I-DRIVES™ as well as digital and analog I/O.
IMAC can operate as a stand-alone system or connected to the user network or Internet.
As a stand-alone controller, IMAC can take the place of a PC in a control system to reduce cost.
IMAC can also be configured to work in conjunction with a PC where the IMAC handles the real-time processes such as motion control and automation, and the PC is used as programming environment and GUI
IDrives® provide user with a performance edge. Advanced tuning and commutation algorithms, made possible by state-of-the-art DSP technology to maximize motor performance. I-DRIVES® offer a complete range of AC- and DC-powered digital drives for servo and stepper motors.
