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.

Overview

RapidSequencer is a scripting language that leverages RMP soft motion controller. Applications to be programmed entirely using RapidSetup Tool What’s a Rich Text element?

Current RapidCode user using RMP

Leverage sequencers to create motion or IO logic and store in the motion firmware.

Machine builder

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

Non C Programmer

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

HMI/UI in any Host System

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

How it works

Straightforward Workflow

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.

Configurations

User Interface & Program

Customer-created user interface and machine control application.

RapidCode API

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

RapidSequencer

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

IO (NIC or Serial)

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

NIC (EtherCAT)

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

EtherCAT Master

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

RMP Motion Firmware

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

Overview

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
