Delta presents Codesys-based motion controllers at SPS Italia

Delta is exhibiting a wide range of smart, energy-efficient and highly integrated industrial automation hardware and software solutions engineered for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications at SPS Italia 2023.

The demonstration includes Delta’s AX-3 series motion controller – which offers a host of features to meet customers’ diverse needs – and a new IIoT function card for the PLC series to enable various IIoT applications. Delta’s recently-launched fan, pump and compressor - the VP3000 Drive – will be present, along with the EB3000 Series, Delta’s third-generation elevator drive which offers a compact design.

Delta’s AX-3 series motion controllers now offer five new CPU models, which enables control of four to 64 drives, offering a broad array of connectivity interfaces from EtherCAT, Modbus TCP/RTU to Ethernet/IP and OPC UA. Delta’s latest motion controller line up increases the scalability of its motion control and PLC product portfolio, offering customers more options to meet their demands across a wide range of market segments. These range from packaging to woodworking, metalworking and material handling. Delta continues to offer the PLCs AX-324N and AX-300N, which are ideally suited to applications that don't require motion control features.

Delta has also extended its high performance AS series PLCs with the new AS-FFTP01 function card to enable various IIoT applications to extend the capability of the applications powered by Delta’s PLC AS300. The AS-FFTP01 IIoT function card is compatible with a multitude of applications. It provides support for OPC UA, and offers increased connectivity with SCADA systems and MQTT for sharing filed data with cloud applications. Meanwhile, the FTP server function provides the ability to connect with IT related applications, such as file transfers between the PLC and a PC. Delta anticipates that the AS series will play an important role in the evolution of Industry 4.0, while improving efficiency in production and industrial environments.

Delta is extending its drive family with new drives, including its newly-launched fan, pump and compressor VP3000 drive. It is specially designed to enhance fluid machine operation efficiency and has a high power rating of up to 630kW, and enhances productivity with low harmonic distortion (THDi) down to 35% in industrial motors.

Another one is the EB3000 Series, the third-generation elevator drive with compact design; with the latest control techniques and supports different encoders with multiple built-in communications, it offers outstanding performance and is compatible with multiple motors and controllers. For pump and fan applications, Delta also offers the MPD series inverter, ideal for supporting intelligent water supply processes thanks to its highly efficient, energy-saving motor with an integrated fanless inverter.

“Automation and digitalisation are driving some of the most exciting developments in the field of smart manufacturing,” says Luca Cavagnari, Italy head of sales at Delta’s industrial automation business group. “Delta is excited to be at the forefront of industrial innovation, helping our customers to optimise the productivity, efficiency and sustainability benefits that arise from the IIoT.

“Our ongoing cooperation with the Codesys Group enables us to offer a brand new motion control solution based on Codesys, so our customers can take full advantage of smart manufacturing environments.”
