The new IP 252-MC is a synchro-control module that is particu-              

larly suited for motion control tasks where a master-slave                  

response is required.                                                       


The IP 252-MC module together with SIMODRIVE drives now permits             

the following tasks to be solved:                                           


- Electronic gearbox.                                                       

- Conveyor synchronization.                                                 

- Electronic clutch.                                                        

- Electronic cam disc.                                                      



_Brief technical features:_                                                 


- One master axis and 3 slave axes per module.                              

- Up to 10 modules can be cascaded in one rack.                             

- Up to 30 slaves with one master.                                          

- Incremental and absolute encoders can be connected.                       

- Table interpolation:                                                      

  - Electronic simulation of a cam disc.                                    

  - Up to 1024 reference points per table.                                  

  - Linear interpolation between 2 reference points.                        

- Electronic clutch.                                                        

- Accurate coupling and decoupling.                                         

- No wear and tear.                                                         

- Can be used with gearbox and table interpolation.                         


Another option will follow in January 1995 with a digital signal            

processor (DSP). This will result in a significant performance              

increase (position-control time below 0.5ms).
