|THE POWER FAMILY OF PAC CONTROLLERSGeneral Information
The acronym PAC, which stands for Programmable Automation Controller, is assuming more and more importance in the field of Industrial Automation since it expresses the ability of the controller to integrate the four fundamental aspects of modern automation:
As you can imagine from the figure, the PAC performs the tasks that were usually assigned to multiple control devices, fully integrating into a single system the following features:
PLC – Programmable Logic Controller: is the operational part of the system (task) that handles the logic of the machine
HMI – Human Machine Interface: is the area dedicated to the exchange of information between the operator / maintainer and the machine
MC – Motion Controller: allows the deterministic management of all trajectories of motion of the axes, cadenced in time intervals exactly repeatable, coordinating their movements in order to achieve predefined complex movements
IT – Information Technology: expresses the ability of the controller to be able to integrate perfectly into the information structure of the factory hosting the machine
The Power family includes a series of PAC scalable in performance and in size.
The most common characteristics of the controllers are:
Possibility of controlling servomotors, with feedback from incremental or absolute encoder, through I/O signal or via motion fieldbus; axe’s interpolation (linear circular, helical, NURBS spline), gearing, camming and kinematics functions for articulated robotic arms (both sequential or parallel kinematic), etc.
Integrated function for tool machines (tool correction, entry and exit functions, generation of profiles, bevelling management, RTCP – Rotating Tool Center Point, etc.)
Multitasking PLC, with the ability to execute instructions in interrupt. Programming Languages: AWL, ST (Structured Test) and SFC (Sequential Function Chart), with the support of alias (local and global) and motion functions like Jog, Point movements, E-Gear or E-Cam.
Multi-Channel CNC, with RTCP (Rotating Tool Center Point) direct/revers kinematic functions and path pre-executor (look-ahead). Programming language: ST (Structured Test) with FB (Function Block), ISO interpreter and MDI (Manual Direct Input) executor. Type of interpolation: liner, circular, helical, nurb, splines, profiling. Imports of ISO programs from CAD/CAM; their execution is possible even in DNC (Direct Numerical Control).
