Application Configurator for CCUs

Our Application configurator provides a large number of standardised, configurable software modules. It makes the process of configuring basic single-access application modules and complex multi-axis application modules significantly easier, and completely dispenses with the need for programming.

Configure rather than program, using our CCU (Configurable control unit)

  • Single-axis application modules: Configurable software modules for controlling single axes in various operating modes such as speed control, positioning, and phase-synchronous operation.
  • Multi-axis application modules: Configurable software modules for controlling complex motion sequences for stacker cranes, winding applications, and kinematic applications, for example.

    Our standardised application modules allow for quick startup, without the need for time-consuming programming
  • Optimise your applications

    We provide a wide range of diagnostics tools for optimising your applications


Configure applications quickly and easily using our Application Configurator for CCUs

  • Graphical configuration of modules via PC
  • Standardised single-axis and multiple-axis application modules can be configured and run directly
  • Modules can be controlled via a standardised process data interface
  • A special control mode allows for pre-startup, without the need for a higher-level PLC (programmable logic controller)
  • Shorter response times when coordinating multiple axes
  • Integrated diagnostics make startup quicker and smoother
