Within the world of automation, the Rexroth Indramat brand is synonymous with high quality performance, advanced functionality and reliability. The PPC-series of drive controllers from this manufacturer have also lived up to the hype of the brand name. Offering precision and flexibility in multi-axis motion control, these PPC controllers are a significant link in a typical Rexroth servo-drive automation set-up.
The PPC controllers have customizable firmware options. Typically ordered separate from the controllers, the embedded firmware module describes the support for various plug-ins and communication protocols. The FWA-PPCPR*-SLE-12VRS-D0-XXXXXX is a typical firmware for a set of PPC-R2x or PPC-P controllers, as indicated via the FWA-PPCPR* in its type code. This firmware module is even more specific for the PPC-R variant, as the PPC-R2x have a higher memory allocation and connectivity than the PPC-R0x variants; however, at base, firmware for PPC controllers are optimized for compliance with complicated tasks e.g. robotic movements. The FWA-PPCPR*-SLE-12VRS-D0-XXXXXX is SYNAX based: more specifically, the standard and updated version 12 of the SYNAX-200 motion logic system.
Based on the ‘SLE’ code of this firmware, the SYNAX comes with a PLC unit and the motion logic is of class ‘Economy’. The SYNAX system is operated via the IndraLogic programming interface, and since the SYNAX version is 12, it features target (PLC control) libraries for both the RECO and PCI-based PPC variants. Also, these target libraries are cross-compatible, such that programs and functions can easily be exchanged. This firmware module has options for extra-functionalities via plug-ins; however, none is equipped—as indicated by the ‘XXXXXX’ in the type-code. Rexroth products are always designed with consideration for improvements in functionality, and for the PPC-controllers, it is through their firmware modules.
