The performance class of a MOVI‑C® CONTROLLER depends on the number of inverters and the number of synchronous axes and auxiliary axes required and to be configured for the movement. The four performance classes "power", "progressive", "advanced" and "standard" are available. All versions have a compact design, meaning they can fit into even small machine control cabinets.

All controllers also benefit from multibus capability. They can work in parallel as an EtherCAT®/SBusPLUS master and also as a PROFINET IO Deviceor EtherNet/IPTM adapter. Modern safety concepts, such as safety via fieldbus, are implemented either via PROFIsafe routing or FSoE safety controllers (such as the SCU safety controller SEW-EURODRIVE SCU safety controller).

NEW: A PROFINET I/O controller or an EtherNet/IPTM scanner functionality is integrated in parallel to the EtherCAT® system bus in the UHX65A-M. Our customers can implement mixed topologies with the new variant: the high-performance EtherCAT® fieldbus for the most demanding motion control tasks and at the same time the PROFINET IO / EtherNet/IPTM fieldbus for reading sensors and controlling other peripheral devices. In this way, every customer gains flexibility and choice of the hardware that can be used for complex applications.

Parameterizing instead of programming

The MOVI‑C® modular automation system offers a shared platform for control cabinet controllers and decentralized controllers with the same functions and the same variety of interfaces.

The controllers from the MOVI‑C® modular automation system can be used for a wide range of motion control and automation tasks. They are linked to the higher-level controller of a machine cell or system using classic fieldbus slave interfaces for the PROFINET, EtherNet/IPTM or Modbus TCP fieldbus systems. As an EtherCAT®/SBusPLUS master, the controller takes care of smooth communication with the subordinate devices, e.g. MOVIDRIVE® or MOVIGEAR® performance and their synchronous connection to the movement/application.

However, the added value that really counts in terms of reducing complexity comes from the integrated software of the centralized and decentralized controllers – parameterizing rather than programming. This software gives you, as a user, more freedom to customize parameters while reducing your outlay on programming.

Other advantages offered by our control technology include simple, central data storage and an auto-reload function for replacement, all of which help ensure that the automation technology in your production systems maintains a consistently high standard of reliability and availability.
