Kikis Posted June 8, 2018 Report Share Posted June 8, 2018 Hi Guys, I have a new project to retrofit a mobile (vehicle) pile driver machine and I'm now in the process of hardware selection. The machine's decentralized control system was based on an obsolete CANopen Master controller made by IFM. It is a special controller for mobile machine applications and designed for harsh environments with excess vibration. Basically the question is: A normal PLC would be a reliable solution or should i use a controller specially designed for that purpose? What I'm thinking is to use a V570 (to be installed inside operator's cabinet) along with some third party CANopen I/O modules and sensors. Does anyone have any experience with using Unitronics PLC's for such applications? (PS) There are a lot of special controllers for mobile applications out there, most of them are based on CODESYS.
