FS801-Firmware: Flying Material Processing

in combination with Motion Controller MC800

The MC800 multi-axis motion controller, a successor to the proven MC700, impresses with its even higher bandwidth and an even more flexible bus architecture. A special highlight of this drive control is the integrated Tandem Drive Controller. That allows to achieve the acceleration requirement of a secondary axis by means of power distribution on two independent drives.

Flying Material Processing for MC800

By using this application firmware, the MC800 controller is equipped for motion control tasks with typical “on-the-fly-processing” machines (e. g. sawing, cutting, punching, drilling, etc.).

The FS801 has an additional axis. This allows for example the controlling of the saw carriage and additionally the saw blade at the same time.

Compared to the FS701 firmware, a significantly higher dynamic is achieved by using the combination FS801 firmware with MC800. In addition, processing to various sensor systems and fieldbus architectures is possible.
