Delta's PAC MH-1 Series feature a simple integration of motion control and logic programming control. It enables better synchronization with EtherCAT and DMCNET communication. These communication interfaces offer high response and high precision control, and are ideal for high-performance multi-axis motion control.The EtherCAT master port allows for up to 4 kHz of synchronous cycle time for multi-axis control and automation (up to 64 axes of control); the built-in DMCNET master enables a 12 multi-axis motion control. It connects a maximum of 100 units of EtherCAT slave modules or 24 units of DMCNET slave modules. Linear, arc, helical and high-speed continuous interpolation can easily be implemented.
The series is suited for many different types of machines: laser engraving, frame cutting, robot arms, five- axis CNC machine tools, EDM, waterjet cutting, injection and woodworking. This controller differentiates itself from the competition thanks to integrated advanced application specific APIs which dramatically ease the implementation process. For example, the MH-1 Series include CNC control functions as well as robot and control and IEC61131 PLC functions. Its versatile software platform offers a perfect integration of motion control, logic programming control and human machine interface.
EtherCAT automation Software, EcNAVI, enables the configuration of an EtherCAT network that includes an EtherCAT master controller and slave devices for data communication, functional identification, programming, and debugging.
The MH-1 Series feature a 1.2 GHz to 2.7 GHz Dual-code processor. Operating temperature range is 0ºC to 50ºC. Its cable-less and fan-less design increases reliability and reduce power consumption. It also features stable storage: easy installation of a large capacity SATA hard disk for easy maintenance and data management. The MH-1 Series offers multiple communication interfaces, such as built-in USB and CFast Card slots, 1 COM port, 2 giga Ethernet and 2 DMCNET communication ports for fast and convenient data transmission. In addition, it includes extension interfaces: two PCI or 1one PCIe extension slots for more flexible operation.
