The S-MAX 400 CE PN MC is a high-end control system with complete Ethernet and IT compatibility and an additionally integrated Motion Control function. Like all control systems from Phoenix Contact, this device is also programmed with the PC Worx software in accordance with the IEC 61131-3 standard. INTERBUS-Master, Modbus/TCP and PROFINET have also been integrated for medium and large I/Os into the PLC control system.
The Motion Control function is provided in the S-MAX 400 CE PN MC by the additional IEC 61131 function modules which have been certified as per PLCopen - Function Blocks for Motion
Control Part 1 + 2.
The motion functions can thus be simply added to the PLC program, increasing the clarity of the overall machine programming.
The drives for Motion Control are networked via Sercos. Since Sercos and the Motion Control evaluation work parallel, this permits very short cycles. The cycle time of the motion control depends on the number of axes connected and starts at 500 µs. Depending on the system architecture, the cycle time may be 1 ms, 2 ms or 4 ms. The Sercos cycle serves as a system cycle for the Motion control system as well as for all drives and is always accurately observed.
