MCi Machine Control

The Unidrive M700 with MCi module allows ultimate performance through advanced machine control

MCi Machine Control


  • MCi adds a powerful second onboard micro processor for high performance IEC 61131-3 based machine control.

MCi200 and MCi210 deliver our most powerful advanced onboard machine control, encompassing a 1.5 axis motion controller, real-time drive-to-drive synchronization, high speed digital I/O and integrated safety features, greatly reducing the need for expensive external components.

Comprehensive application programs are intuitively written using Machine Control Studio (based on the industry standard IEC 61131-3 languages) to build highly flexible and productive machines quickly.

  • Features
    Optimize machine productivity with powerful networked onboard automation and motion control

    • MCi machine controller is configured using industry standard IEC 61131-3 programming languages within the programming environment.
    • Additional MCi modules can be added for multi-processing, giving even greater machine control capability.
    • Access to a comprehensive library of drive and machine control function blocks and applications allows the user to achieve performance without effort.
