The IndraMotion MTX control incorporates CNC, motion control, and PLC functions into one system for machine tools and forming machines. The NC and IEC 61131-3-compliant PLC share the same hardware and VxWorks real-time operating system. The PLC multitasks and executes 1,000
statements quickly. The CNC's interpolation time when controlling eight axes is 1 msec, and it operates up to 64 axes using 12 independent channels. The IndraMotion MTX uses a Sercos open-drive interface to communicate with intelligent electrical or hydraulic drives.
