Software Add-on

RapidSequencer

A scripting language based on RapidCode API that enables OEMs to easily program the entire machine program or sub-routines using RMP motion controller into the RTOS to achieve real-time deterministic performance. C language programming experience is not required.

INTRODUCTION AND FEATURES

Overview

RapidSequencer is a scripting language that leverages RMP soft motion controller. Applications to be programmed entirely using RapidSetup Tool

R

Non C Programmer

You don’t have to be a C programmer to program your machine for high performance
R

Add additional axes (servo, stepper, or IO)

A user can add up to 64 EtherCAT slave devices (servo, stepper, IO, or sensors)
R

Machine builder

Achieve complex tasks without the need for an expensive PLC or motion controller.
R

HMI/UI in any Host System

Use any OS or hardware for your host system to create a beautiful User Interface.

STRAIGHTFORWARD WORKFLOW 

How It Works 

Setup

Configure EtherCAT network and save topology

Connect your EtherCAT nodes to RMP+ controller and RapidSetup tool will do the rest of the work. RapidSetup will scan network and then seamlessly save the topology.

Program

Create sequencer(s) for Motion and IO needs

Create a single or multiple sequencers using RapidCode scripting language based on your machine’s motion and IO needs. The IDE is built into RapidSetup tool so you can easily debug your program.

User Interface

Design beautiful, intuitive, and powerful applications

Visual Studio can be used for developing simple or feature rich UIs’s with powerful tooling and debugging capability.

Link UI to Sequencer

Connect the UI to Sequencers using RapidTags

Last step is to connect the UI to Sequencer program(s) so you can write into and read variables. Use RapidTags to seamlessly make the connection.

UNDER THE HOOD

RapidSequencer Architecture

See Which Variation Is The Best For You

Great product if you are an existing RMP customer and would like to load some processes into the RTOS for real-time deterministic performance. These processes can be motion or IO related.

User Interface & Program

Customer created user interface and machine control application.

RapidCode API

C++, C#, VB .NET API for intuitive development.

RMP Motion Firmware

Low-level operations for RMP’s motion controller memory.

EtherCAT Master

Connects the master to slave devices using CoE (CAN application layer over EtherCAT®).

Rapid Sequencer

The real-time RapidCode® API for INtime® Distributed RTOS.

NIC EtherCAT

Ethernet-based connection to EtherCAT® slaves on the network.

IO

Ethernet-based or serial connection (COMM: RS232, RS422, or RS485) to external devices.

Focused on OEMs that would like a PLC using a simple and intuitive scripting language. A user can create an application and load it into the RTOS and then communicate with the application using tags. A user can develop the UI using any OS or any hardware for host system

User Interface & Program

Customer created user interface and machine control application.

Server

Coordinate inputs and outputs between the Host System and Motion Controller over an Ethernet-based interface.

RapidCode Sequencer

The real-time RapidCode® API for INtime® Distributed RTOS.

RMP Motion Firmware

Low-level operations for RMP’s motion controller memory.

EtherCAT Master

Connects the master to slave devices using CoE (CAN application layer over EtherCAT®).

NIC EtherCAT

Ethernet-based connection to EtherCAT® slaves on the network.

NIC or Serial

Ethernet-based or serial connection (COMM: RS232, RS422, or RS485) to external devices.
