Delta Announces New RMC150 Multi-Axis Motion Controller Production Schedule
July 15, 2007 - Vancouver, WA - Delta Computer Systems, Inc. has announced the production release of the NEW RMC150 multi-axis motion controller. As of July, Delta's distribution channel is actively quoting and delivering RMC150/151 motion controllers (RMC151 includes pressure/force) for applications in North American and international regions.
The RMC150 multi-axis motion controller includes Delta's powerful new RMC150E CPU module with a built-in 10/100 Mbit Ethernet port and takes advantage of Delta's field proven RMC100 Series I/O modules. Programming, configuration, diagnostics and automatic tuning is achieved using Delta's field hardened RMCTools software-yielding a hardware and software combination that is a leap forward in capability and ease-of-use for fluid power and electric servo motion control applications. The RMC150 can handle a maximum of eight synchronized axes; additionally the RMC151 can control eight dual-loop position-pressure/force axes, twice the previous maximums.
Steve Nylund, Delta's CEO stated, "The RMC150 with RMCTools delivers even more functionality and ease of use to multi-axis fluid power and servo electric motion applications." Nylund added, "Delta's powerful and intuitive RMCTools software has been field proven for the past three years on Delta's 1- and 2-axis RMC70 Series and will serve to quickly make the RMC150 a popular choice for both basic and complex multi-axis applications."
RMCTools software features flexible User Programs with extensive commands including robust mathematical expressions complementing setup wizards, automated loop tuning wizards and a plot manager for graphic based diagnostics.
The RMC150 uses RMC100 Series motion interface modules and can be "mixed and matched" in more than 500 configurations of 2-, 4-, 6-, or 8-axis for flexible motion control choices. And built-in full duplex 10/100Mbit Ethernet port with a convenient USB port provides a programming connection freeing up a module slot for expanded discrete I/O.
