Integrated Motion Controller for VLT® AutomationDrive FC 302.

High-precision positioning and synchronization with reduced costs and system complexity.

Perfection in positioning and synchronization. The new, optional Integrated Motion Controller (IMC) makes VLT® AutomationDrive FC 302 different. Thanks to the IMC functionality, the VLT® AutomationDrive FC 302 is now a competitive performer in positioning or synchronizing applications – with no additional hardware modules required. In many cases, you can even perform motion control with no encoder.

To optimize performance, many applications across all industry sectors have a need for precise positioning and synchronization. These applications include:

  • rotary tables
  • packaging machines
  • labelling machines
  • conveyors
  • extruders
  • palletizers

To date, positioning and synchronization operations have been performed using servo drives. However, servo equipment is expensive; it is difficult to commission and requires additional cabling. And, as servo drives do not work with open loop control systems, there is a high failure rate. Many applications do not require the high dynamic performance offered by a servo drive. An alternative was to use an AC drive. But, until now, an additional internal or external module or an encoder on the motor was required.
