"Motion Control Solutions"
A Complete Array of Products
to Work Together in Your Next Application
The "ORION" family is a fully
integrated series of products for
servo motion control.
From motion controllers, to a
wide variety of AC brushless
servomotors and drives, to machine
I/0, operator interface devices and
convenient interfaces to factory
networks --- ORMEC offers a full
complement of standard hardware
and software products guaranteed
to work together in your motion
The ORION TM Model 30, Model
50 and Model 70 motion controllers
are the heart of ORMEC's line of
motion control products. The three
controllers are built on the IBM-PC
compatible architecture (80486-
DX2/66 and DX4- I 00 main proces
sors) and offer three, five and seven
PC-AT user slots.
DSP Axis Modules are front
loaded into any of the user slots, as
are factory network communication adapters. Each DSP
Axis Module controls two servomotors, or one motor with a
pacer encoder, seamlessly integrating 1 1/2 to 14 axes of high
performance servo control into ORION". Each DSP Axis
Module also provides interfaces to its associated servo-
drives as well as high speed sensors and the on-board
programmable limit switches. Analog inputs and delay
counters are optional.
The ORION TM System Module provides two PC Card
memory slots (one for the MotionBASIC System Card),
offering memory options to cover a wide range of application needs. It also includes a number of features required
in industrially hardened controllers, such as watchdog
timers and E-stop circuitry.
AC Brushless Servomotors & Drives
ORMEC's two standard series of AC brushless servomo
tors and drives provide a wide range of torque and speed.
One uses encoder feedback and the other uses resolvers.
Each controller includes a rack for 16 discrete I/0. An
additional 24 discrete I/0 points can be added by attaching
an Opto-22 compatible rack. or you can use remote I/0 to
12 discrete and analog I/0.
Operator Interface Devices
A compact industrial terminal and an array of flatpanel
touchscreen terminals offer a spectrum of convenient, cost
effective choices for operator interface. User-friendly
software makes programming these devices a snap!
Factory Network Connectivity
MotionBASIC® Extensions provide easy-to-use factory
communications via Modbubus&tm, Data Highway/Plus&tm, or
S908 PLC networks-and connectivity to the Allen-Bradley
SLC-500 series of PLCs utilizing the DFI protocol.
MotionBASIC® Extensions (MBX) simplify set-up of automatic
background communications. PLCs and industrial
computers can use these communication networks to
access any ORION TM data including torque, speed, position
and diagnostic information. "Product recipe" and machine
status information can be easily communicated. With S908,
an ORION TM motion controller operates as a remote I/0
drop of a Modicon PLC.
For electronic gearing applications, a "pacer encoder"
conveniently interfaced to a DSP Axis Module monitors
machine travel allowing precise synchronization of multiple
servos to existing machinery.
