Your business issues are unique.

Efficiency, within the principles of modular engineering, aims for full reusability of software, regardless of a machine's complexity. This requires control hardware, which is fully scalable and covers a wide range of performance needs. From the simplest application with 2-4 axes, to more complex processes, full software portability needs to deliver performance and cost-effectiveness.

Our experts help you throughout the entire machine life cycle.

  • Solutions

    The Synchronized Axes / Sercos/ Motion Controller LMC101 architecture allows for economical automation of small machines, with a maximum of four servo axes. The smallest controller of the PacDrive LMC series, this architecture contains Lexium 52 servo drives for configurations with few self-contained single axes, and a classic hardwired safety solution. You can benefit from high-end motion features, tools and libraries, designed for machines with up to 100 axes.
  • Value Proposition

    • Autonomous control systems for motion, PLC logic, and communication
    • PacDrive 3 is based upon proven logic motion technology, which unifies PLC, motion, and robotics control functionality on a single hardware platform. 
    • Sercos drive communication allows the implementation of safe I/O communication using a single, Ethernet-based fieldbus.
    • With its centralized system architecture, PacDrive is the ideal solution for controlling a broad range of servo-driven production and material handling equipment and robotics. It uses fully integrated, IEC 61131-3-compliant program structures.
  • Differentiation

    PacDrive 3 based automation architectures can be flexibly adapted to the changing configurations of servo axes. If additional axes must be added, or more performance is needed, users can easily move to a more advanced controller model. No other hardware needs to be changed, as full program portability overcomes any limitations on the software side.
