A PLCopen library is available for the MCi200 and MCi210 Machine Control option modules.
The advantages of using PLCopen for Motion applications are:
- It simplifies the usage of the AMC (Advanced Motion Controller) by including an AMC configuration tool within the MCS software
- The Function Blocks are well documented and consistent from one vendor to the other
- Software development time is reduced
- Software development cost is reduced
- Standardisation makes code easier to read and follow
