Motion-Control Software Adds IEC61131-3 Support

The PLC Open compliant control software, Application Development Kit (ADK) 6.0, now offers support for the IEC61131-3 programming language. Allowing users to program using any of the five languages in addition to ACSPL+, ADK 6.0 software provides fully variable mapping that enables bi-directional interfacing, mutual synchronization, and functionality exchanges between ACSPL+ and IEC 61131-3 programs. Also coming on board, full CANOpen support allows for the configuration of SPiiPlus motion controllers as a CANOpen master according to the DS-402 specification. The ADK revision also enables advanced two-phase step motor operation in both open and closed-loop modes when using the internal amplifiers in the SPiiPlus CM and MC4U controllers. Other features include support for a second TCP/IP Ethernet port on all MC4U components. ACS MOTION CONTROL, Plymouth, MN. (800) 545-2980.
