Mitsubishi Electric Introduces Q170MCPU-EIP Motion Controller

POSTED 08/14/2013

Q170MCPU-EIP Motion ControllerContinuing its momentum as a factory automation technology innovator, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. releases the Q170MCPU-EIP motion controller. The motion controller allows end users to operate their existing third-party control systems while leveraging the quality and performance of a Mitsubishi Electric servo motion system.

Motion-ControllerThe Q170MCPU-EIP motion controller was designed to use with third-party control systems that incorporate Add-On-Instructions (AOI). Mitsubishi Electric created an AOI library with a set of motion instructions that improve the functionality of third-party design and configuration software. These instructions allow users to quickly and easily upgrade to a Mitsubishi Electric servo system to control MR-J3 and MR-J4 servos via Ethernet/IP.

The Q170MCPU-EIP also allows users to create positioning applications within their existing programming environment, while enjoying the exceptional performance of the Mitsubishi Electric MR-J3 and MR-J4 servo platforms. The motion controller is ideal for applications where end-user specifications require a third-party PLC and up to eight axes of servo control. Specific applications that are well suited to the Q170MCPU-EIP motion controller include:

    Case packing
    Cartesian pick and place
    Cut to length
    Indexing vertical, form, fill and seal
