30-axis motion control in the rack

12 November 2009

The Trajexia motion controller fits directly into Omron’s CJ1 PLC rack, thereby providing big space savings within the control panel and reducing the need for control panel wiring, since communications between the PLC and the motion controller are made through the backplane. It also means the two can directly share data of all types, thereby enhancing interoperability and simplifying programming.

 Motion programming is made even faster and more straightforward with the Trajexia Studio software package, which is Omron’s new standard platform for all of its Trajexia motion controllers. With an improved and intuitive graphical interface, Trajexia Studio offers advanced functionalities such as multi-device support, off-line programming, partial downloads and a program compare tool, among other features.

Although small in size, the Trajexia CJ1-MCH72 supports up to 30 physical axes as well as offering all of the versatility and power of Omron’s standalone Trajexia motion controllers. It provides 16 digital inputs, 8 digital outputs and a serial port for encoder I/O connection, together with a built-in MECHATROLINK-II port for the connection of the servo drives and inverters. The controller features selectable cycle times from 0.5 ms, 1 ms, 2 ms, and 4 ms.

Additional communication options can readily be implemented using standard CJ1 interface boards to provide connections to all popular fieldbus systems, including Ethernet and Profinet.
