Yaskawa Electric, Waukegan, IL, has enhanced its IEC/MP2000iec machine controller with new hardware and software. New is MotionWorks IEC Pro, an integrated development environment based on the IEC611212-3 international programming standard. The development environment enables users to program in Sequential Function Chart language, configure projects with up to 16 tasks, and support all MP2000iec controller models.
The MP2310iec machine controller offer three models that allow up to three local modules of digital or analog I/O to be controlled. It supports EtherNet/IP and Modbus/TCP for connectivity to most HMI and PLCs. The controller can operate local Sigma-5 outputs and can interface third-party remote I/O modules including Phoenix, Wago, and Opto 22.
