Tecnatom has incorporated the new SIROCO-LITE control system into its portfolio of products. This is a centralised, high performance and reduced cost and size control system that, like other Tecnatom controllers, is integrated under the SirocoMULTI architecture.SIROCO-LITE provides efficient and optimised technical and economic solutions for applications demanding the control of up to four axes.
The small size of the system, the optimised machine interface, its capacity for automation and the execution of multi-axis trajectories and remote operation via Ethernet (TCP/IP) make it ideal for use in nuclear, industrial and aerospace applications. Additionally, the system incorporates configuration, diagnosis and autotest tools that facilitate the performance of fine tuning and maintenance tasks.
Outstanding among its main characteristics are the high performance PID control of up to 4 axes, trajectory performance capacity, backlash and leadscrew compensation tables, 32 opto—isolated digital inputs / 32 outputs, 16 analogue inputs / 8 analogue outputs, TCP/IP communications, stand-alone operation and SirocoMULTI-Console graphic operating interface.SIROCO-LITE, which has been fully developed at Tecnatom, will be incorporated in the short term in nuclear reactor vessels and components inspection systems.
