 Need More Control?   Inject a PLC 
  into your Motion Controller...

Parker's new Xpress ACR9600 programmable automation controller (PAC) offers the best of IEC 61131-3 standard programming languages. With structured text, continuous function chart and ladder logic programming, the PAC offers the right language for your application.Ladder Logic

The PAC controller is delivered with more than 60 built- in function blocks for machine and motion control.  Included are standard PLC function blocks such as timers and counters, as well as a complete set of motion function blocks, combining the best of PLC's and motion in one product.

The PAC implements a number of blocks defined by PLCopen, a vendor- independent organization devoted to creating standards for motion within IEC 61131-3, but the PAC doesn't stop there.  The PAC also includes custom function blocks for such things as nurbs, splines, and advanced gearing and camming, creating the flexibility and ease of use you expect from Parker.

While this integrated PLC and Motion Controller can solve conventional PLC applications, the real power focuses on motion-centric machines with two to sixteen axes and up to few hundred I/O.
