Keywords: programming, motion control, Real-time Operating System

The SMLC-SA combines ORMEC’s high-performance drive technology, ORMEC's powerful motion technology and outstanding PLC capabilities of the SMLC together with the IEC 61131-3 programming flexibility into a single, compact, cost-effective package.

  • Motion Control and PLC Controls powerful enough to control your entire machine
  • IEC 61131-3 Programming environment using all five standard languages
  • Broad Power Range - 600 to 24,000 watts (30 horsepower)
  • Input voltage range - 115, 230 and 480 VAC
  • Application Specific Function Blocks provide solutions right out of the box
  • Compact Flash - Removable program storage
  • High Performance - 32 bit microprocessor
  • Reliable, Robust - QNX real-time operating system
  • Built-in I/O - 27 digital and 4 analog, expandable to thousands
  • 2 Ethernet and 2 Serial ports included
  • 14 Models available

The SMLC-SA uses the same development and commissioning tools as the SMLC product line. The CoDeSys Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and runtime engine are world class IEC 61131-3 tools used in hundreds of products worldwide. These are robust, full-featured tools with extensive diagnostic capabilities. The SMLC platform supports all five of the IEC 61131-3 program languages, including:

  • Relay Ladder Logic
  • Function Block Diagram
  • Structured Text
  • Instruction List
  • Sequential Function Chart

ServoWire Pro is an easy to use, integrated suite of configuration, diagnostic and maintenance utilities to assist in the commissioning of the drive. In addition to built-in I/O, there is a complete line of networked I/O expansion modules available based on Ethernet that can handle thousands of I/O points. HMI and factory networking support is provided via built-in Modbus/TCP, Ethernet/IP adapter as well as via the free OPC server.

ORMEC | SMLC Multi-axis | Motion Controllers

This platform puts ORMEC's motion engine together with a high performance PLC capability and world class open standard software which allows you to focus on solving your application instead of integrating control components. In an SMLC system, the position, velocity and torque loops are all closed by the digital signal processors in the ServoWire Drives based on position commands sent from the SMLC.


ORMEC | ORION | Motion Controllers

The goal of ORION automation control is to offer an industrial PC-based platform for multi-axis motion control including servos, machine I/O, Human-Machine Interfaces and connectivity.A fully-integrated control solution provides hardware and software that are engineered to plug together and work as a system.
