COMPARISON GUIDE AOI Positioning vs Advanced Motion with EtherNet/IP

Which EtherNet/IP system is right for your application? This comparison guide highlights the major features and functionality differences between the AOI Positioning with EtherNet/IP and Advanced Motion with EtherNet/IP systems.

What is an AOI? The Rockwell Automation RSLogix 5000 software allows users to create and share reusable code in function blocks called Add-On Instructions (AOI). Mitsubishi Electric has created an AOI library that provides a set of motion instructions that improve on the functions included in RSLogix 5000. By using these instructions, you can quickly and easily upgrade to a Mitsubishi Electric servo system to control MR-J3 and MR-J4* servos via EtherNet/IP.

AOI Positioning with EtherNet/IP

Advanced Motion with EtherNet/IP

Create your positioning application within the Rockwell Automation RSLogix 5000 programming environment while enjoying the quality and performance of the Mitsubishi Electric MR-J3 and MR-J4* servo platforms. This system is ideal for applications where an end-user specification requires a ControlLogix or CompactLogix PLC and up to 8 axes of servo control.

Harness the power and reliability of the Mitsubishi Electric iQ Motion Platform for your most demanding motion control applications. Now you can share motion control data with your PLC via the built-in EtherNet/IP port on the Q170MCPU-EIP motion controller.

KEY FEATURES ■■ Add-On

Instructions (AOI) replace built-in motion commands in the ControlLogix or CompactLogix

■■ EtherNet/IP

slave interface built into the motion controller with no adapters required

■■ Positioning

and Velocity Control, Jogging, Homing, and Gearing

■■ Up

to 8 axes (up to 4 if gearing is used)

■■ Compatible ■■ No

with MR-J3 and MR-J4* servos

dongle, adapter, or converter required

KEY FEATURES ■■ Combine

the full capabilities of iQ Motion with built-in EtherNet/IP slave interface

■■ Camming,

Gearing, Encoder Following, Registration, Jogging, Homing, and more

■■ Customizable

Communications – send whatever data you need between the PLC and Motion Controller

■■ Does

not use Add-on Instructions in the PLC

■■ Works

with iQ Motion Application Framework for fast and easy program development

■■ Up

to 16 axes

■■ Compatible ■■ No

with MR-J3 and MR-J4* servos

dongle, adapter, or converter required www.MEAU.com


Discovery Questions ■■ How

many axes are on the machine? ■■ Are axes geared together? ■■ Is camming, encoder following, or registration required?
