Motion Works IEC


Through the use of Yaskawa's IEC61131-3 programming environment, MotionWorks IEC Express and MotionWorks IEC Pro enable programmers to take advantage of several standard programming languages within a single development package.

These languages work predictably and seamlessly with one another: Ladder Logic (perfect for digital sensory data representation), Structured Text (great for assignment of mathematical algorithms), and Function Block Diagrams (best suited for machine control). Variables and outputs can be referenced between different POUs (Programming Organization Units), providing the ideal automation development environment.

MotionWorks IEC is an essential part of Yaskawa’s achievement of Singular Control: the ability to interchangeably operate articulated robots, gantry robots, servo axes and variable frequency drives from a single motion controller, without the need to change your system’s operating code.


Robot Support:

 Plug-and-play configuration and control of articulated robots, gantry robots and delta robots and custom robot mechanisms.


Custom Kinematics:

Allow users to create and configure their own custom robotic mechanisms, significantly simplifying the process of specifying everyday motion.


Standard Programming Languages:

Programs are standardized per IEC61131-3 standard. This increases program predictability and re-usability as well as reduces error and waste of human resources.


Tangent Axis Following:

Enhances the ability of automated shape cutting equipment to smoothly follow complex contours.


Reusable Motion Libraries:

Draw from an extensive collection of automation logic developed by Yaskawa experts to accomplish common tasks, or import your own previously developed logic.


PLCopen Function Blocks:

Yaskawa's Function Blocks are developed to comply with PLCopen standards while preserving the motion algorithms developed over decades of Yaskawa motion control expertise.


HMI Tagging Tool:

Supports easy tagging of Maple Systems, VIPA, Beijer, Red Lion and EXOR HMIs.
