The latest thermoformer retrofit done by Nova uses an ABB AC500 Programmable Automation Controller. With this equipment, the user can download and save recipes from a SQL database located on a remote server.  An EtherCAT bus provides communications to 3 servo drives using CoDeSys motion libraries. The machine visualization pages are viewed in a browser connected to the onboard web server.
