Master Controller

SMAC Master Controller

The MC Master Controller can coordinate multiple SMAC CANopen-based slave controllers in a multi-axis motion system, and at the same time can communicate with a PLC through standard industrial fieldbus protocols such as Ethernet/IP and PROFINET. The hardware platform of the MC is a mini computer. Additionally, it provides interfaces to a CANopen network and requires a 24 VDC power supply.

The control and communication functionalities of the MC are accommodated by a firmware that runs within the MC operating system. To create an MC program, a set of commands and parameters (having a syntax similar to the SMAC LCC control center program) are written in a configuration software that can be accessed from the MC operating system.

 The MC can serve solely as a coordinator of up to 127 CANopen-based slave controllers. The MC can also act as a “slave” of a PLC and at the same time, the MC acts as a “master” that coordinates the slave controllers. The MC can therefore be viewed as an intelligent gateway device, as it is capable of performing the coordination tasks, in addition to providing a communication between a given industrial ethernet protocol and the CANopen protocol that is recognized by the slave controllers.
