WMX

WMX is Movensys' software control brand and software-based motion control platform.

Moventecture is a unique technology architecture that enables motion control of equipment on Windows PCs with only software alone.
It helps replacing traditional motion controller boards by reducing complex cablings of legacy hardware based systems. Motion control from a single PC simplifies overall system overhead, and customers can customize real-time control threads according to their requirements for high speed and accuracy.​

Features

  • Based on a real-time operating system, it ensures periodic and real-time control by occupying one or more cores of a multicore CPU.
  • Open Architecture (Moventecture) enables users to develop additional functions that they need, beyond the basic motion functions included in WMX.
  • Easy for users to develop the desired functionality using general programming languages such as C, C++, C#, VB, and Python.
  • Obtained the highest level of EtherCAT Master Class, Class A standard.
  • Supports communication protocols including EtherCAT, CC-Link IE TSN, MECHATROLINK-4 and while simultaneously enabling hybrid control.
