Products and Services

ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller (SMLC)

ORMECís ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller (SMLC) is a fully integrated control solution based on ORMEC's high performance ServoWire Soft Motion technology. By combining Pentium-class processors, IEEE 1394b (FireWire) drive networking and Ethernet connectivity, the SMLC is a system that can control your entire machine. CoDeSys IEC 61131-3 programming with PLCopen motion function blocks -- plus powerful ORMEC extensions provide proven, open standard tools for developing application programs for motion and I/O control. General purpose I/O options are fully supported using Ethernet and Profibus.

ORMECís motion programming implementation (ServoWire Motion Blocks) conforms to the PLCopen motion function block definitions and also provides powerful, flexible functionality beyond that defined in the standard. Using the ServoWire Motion Blocks, a variety of applications can be written in any of the IEC 61131-3 programming languages.

ServoWire SD Drives

ORMECís has expanded its lineup of networked servodrives with the release of the ServoWire SD family featuring IEEE 1394b. The 1394b network is more robust, efficient and faster than the previous 1394a network. The introduction of this drive family, combined with our new series of SMLC controllers, allows ORMEC to provide a complete motion control system with the advantages of 1394b.
