CPM Topologie

Control via the higher-level PLC takes place by using ready-made function blocks. In this way it is achieved that the programmer has only to deal with minimal details of the axis.

These function blocks are fully realized in the CPM-1000 and their input and output signals are transferred via fieldbus or network. This is advantageous in several respects.

  • Specific characteristics of the PLC don’t have any effect on the mechanism of the function block.
  • Due to the high computing power of the CPM-1000 the function blocks are running with high-speed and any delays in the PLC are eliminated.
  • This transparent interface provides a high reliability of the system, as in the PLC is no executable code installed.
