Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. Posted 07/11/2016
VERNON HILLS, Ill. – Addressing the need for integrating motion control, safety, I/O, variable frequency drives, and robots on a single open network with gigabit speeds, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. introduces the new RD77GF Simple Motion Modules and MR-J4-GF-RJ Servo Drives featuring an open CC-Link IE Field interface.
The RD77GF Simple Motion Module for the iQ-R Series controller is ideal for a range of applications from simple point table operation to advanced synchronous control, and provides easy programming for complex applications. Combined with the CC-Link® IE Field compatible MR-J4-GF-RJ servo system, the RD77GF offers exceptional speed and performance.
Key benefits of the RD77GF Simple Motion Modules and MR-J4-GF-RJ Servo Drives include:
- Gigabit CC-Link IE Field Network
- Superior motion performance
- Two communications modes for maximum flexibility
- Advanced synchronous control
- Single software solution
The integration of RD77GF Simple Motion Modules and MR-J4-GF-RJ Servo Drives also provides One-Touch Auto-Tuning™ for fast, trouble-free servo tuning, and Advanced Vibration Suppression Control II™ to suppress vibration both on the load and the machine base.
“A single network operating at gigabit speeds provides tremendous flexibility, reduced wiring, and excellent performance,” said Bryan Knight, automation solutions team leader and product manager, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. “With 10x the speed of other industrial Ethernet networks, there is no limit to the machine data you can collect for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).”
