CONTROL Runtime

Entry in the KEB control system range starts with CONTROL Runtime Basic. The real-time kernel program  guarantees deterministic performance with jitter in the µs-range right from the basic version. This means that the way is left free for true multi-tasking with no program-related limits. KEB's basic solution is suitable in general for motion control where tasks are divided according to control and drives.

 CONTROL Runtime PRO is likewise based as a developed solution on programming standard IEC 61131-3 and PLC Open. The controls and their interfaces with drive controls work with open multi-manufacturer commands corresponding to PLC Open user organisation definitions. This means maximum flexibility in choice of device and code portability even if different manufacturer platforms are used on the control side. 

With PRO solutions, the system transfers the motion profiles of all axes via the deterministic communication bus. With this, the number of feasible profiles is unlimited and the profile itself can be changed in a motion cycle within a short response time. With this system, KEB offers an efficient solution for current and future machine designs.

If CNC functions are required in an application, CONTROL Runtime ADVANCED is used. The extension to the PRO solution contains CNC transformation libraries as well as the CNC Interpreter according to DIN 66025 (G-Code). The CNC library contains function blocks for using internally stored NC files or loading external NC files (ASCII-/.txt files).
