Integrates motion and I/O with IEEE 1394b technology
ORMEC's ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller (SMLC) provides cost-effective motion solutions from one to16 axes. It features IEEE 1394b (FireWire) technology that supports higher data rates with improved noise immunity. All models offer small footprints, built-in digital and analog I/O, removable compact Flash, expansion slots, Ethernet and serial connectivity. The SMLC provides a fully-integrated machine-control system by combining IEC 61131-3 programming, PLCopen motion function blocks and industry-standard protocols for I/O and network connectivity.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
