Motion controller

The motion controller has a modular design and can be freely configured according to the requirements with different modules. The individual modules are interconnected by a high-speed bus embedded in the DIN rail. motion controller

Extension modules

For the extension of the motion controller different modules are available:
  • Digital inputs and outputs
  • Analog inputs and outputs
  • Encoder modules
  • RS232 interfaces
  • Position controller

Central processing unit

The central unit is the heart of VariMotion. This module houses all the components required to operate the system.

Various central units with different computing capacities and memory sizes ensure optimum adaptation to the technical requirements.

The central unit contains the following elements:

  • Remanent Retentive memory up to 8 MB
    with wear-free MRAM memories
  • vNET interface for drive network
  • USB interface for programming

Network connection

To enable the use of VariMotion in different plant topologies, several modules are available for the established fieldbuses and networks.
  • Profinet
  • Profibus
  • EtherCAT
  • CANopen

Ethernet TCP/IP

The network interface also contains a connection for Ethernet TCP/IP. This can be used for programming and it is also possible to access multi‍-‍port variables and objects with the pNET protocol.
